    i have heard we can have this on CD.
    Just got some boullion and waiting for the kettle to boil. Hoping this will stave my hunger pains.
    But does boveril taste like marmite? (she hopes) as i'll get some if so!!!

    strange you have heard you can have it on CD. It has a high salt content so is likely to cause water retention and therefore not show as weight loss on the scales (which can be demotivating even though the fat is still being lost). Bovril is far stronger and meatier tasting than marmite

    Bovril isn't recommended on CD. As dancing says it has a very high salt content.

    I hadnt heard you could have it but surely the salt content is similar to the bullion, thats really high too.

    The Bouillon salt content is not too bad

    Both Bovril and Oxo are a no-no

    Can someone tell me what is Boullion? I'm craving something a bit different to drink. Is it stock?

    Thanks!

    Yes it is you can find it in Sainsbury's with the gravys and the reduced salt one is in with the gluten free food usually - its about 1.75 a pot and its like a savoury stock. 1-2tspn a day & you can pop tspn in your soup to make it go further and it tastes even richer.... Get sum xxx

    it is the marigold bouillon we are all talking about (I think) as this one has been used by many without ill-effect ... other brands may not be so good

    The builion is getting me through really. Had a cup at bedtime last night and am looking forward to one tonight.
    Thanks to peeps who pointed out the reduced salt one is in the gluten free section- would never have found it otherwise.
    Got mine at Tesco's. Shame about the Bovril- I got really excited for a minute then!!
