Pros:Easy to have on hand, economical, adds good flavor, no fat

Cons:MSG, high sodium

The Bottom Line: Wyler's Instant Bouillon is a convenient product to have in the pantry for some economical instant chicken or beef broth.


I used to purchase chicken stock in the quart container from Trader Joes but the only problem was that a lot of the stock would go to waste because I did not need that much at once.

I was happy to find Wyler's Instant Bouillon as it allows me to use as much or as little of the broth as I need for a recipe.

The bouillon cubes are packaged in a glass jar with a screw off blue lid. I purchase the smaller jars, which contain 3.25 ounces net weight of bouillon cubes. There are about 25 cubes per jar and each cube makes one cup of broth. Each cube is individually wrapped in foil -- the chicken flavor is wrapped in gold foil and the beef in red foil. The 3.25 ounce jar retails for about $3 and I have purchased mine at both Ralph's and Ranch99. The front states that Wyler's is trusted since 1931; that's a long time!

The directions state to dissolve one bouillon cube in one cup (8 ounces) of boiling water. Sometimes I dissolve a cube in 8 ounces of boiling water, but sometimes I lessen the amount of water for a more concentrated flavor. I adjust the recipes accordingly to control for salt content since each cube (or cup of broth) has 800mg of sodium (33% of DV). Since each cube packs in a whooping 800mg of sodium, I make sure to go easy on the salt. The broth has no fat and has only 5 calories per cup of prepared cube.

I use the bouillon cubes to make the sauce for pan fried chicken noodles as well as for other Chinese noodle dishes. I also use the chicken bouillon cube when I make Spanish rice as the bouillon adds a nice flavor to the rice. I find the beef bouillon cubes to be good for making a Chinese noodle dish that has ground beef (though traditionally ground pork), cucumbers, green onions, and soybean paste. The bouillon cubes -- both chicken and beef -- add nice flavors to recipes that call for chicken or beef stock.

I love the convenience of Wyler's Instant Bouillon. Simply drop a bouillon cube into some boiling water and there's instant broth. The broth is also economical, at about 12 cents per cube/cup.

My only complaint about the bouillon cubes involves the ingredient list. Monosodium glutamate is the sixth ingredient. The ingredient list is long and contains some ingredients that seem not so natural for a broth, such as propyl gallate and silicon dioxide.
