    Just found stock cubes and instant gravy by googling Anthony Worrall Thomson.
    I have major food intolerances so no yeast or hydrolised stuff (MSG) and ingredients look okay - obviously I won't know until I try them but have
    been looking for ages for some decent stock. I will find the link if anyone wants it and can't find it.

    I am definitely interested. I seem to make chicken vegetable soup a lot. Need a way to add flavor when chicken gets too expensive.

    I have been using Celifibr cubes for years. They are gluten free and have a wonderful flavour.

    Has anyone tried this brand of stock? (from the amazon link). Going to have to see if US Amazon carries this brand, probably not.

    I can't find out what IS in them. Just what isn't.

    I'm a pretty picky eater and I got my whole family on the Celifibr cubes and they are a hit. I have to say that the negative review does not reflect my experience, they are very easy to break apart and for my own personal taste not too salty either.

    I didn't want any yeast....but other than that they look good. I agree the bad review was about ease of use - and the majority of people love MSG - they call it flavour!!!!!!

    Herb-Ox is a US brand that is MSG free, I think.

    I have found it easy enough to get a good gravy with chopped onions sauteed in butter with a spoonful of flour (gluten free) than flavoured with tamari soy sauce and meat juices if available. Fresh vegetable or meat stock can be frozen in ice cube trays if needed.

    thanks for the tip - for me I don't do soy or any sauce really, there's always something in it I don't want. There is sugar in the AWT one but its wayyyy down on the list so going to try them.

    Tamari is gluten free and has nothing in but fermented soya beans and you only use a drop for flavour but if you have meatjuices you don't need it. It is a life saver for me.

    Thanks for the research, SickOfSickness!
    I think I'll give them a miss - the main ingredient is salt, then only 7% chicken fat and 2% meat product.:rolleyes:

    The celifibr stuff looks vastly superior as far as the ingredients go.

    "natural flavoring" is a warning sign. It can include natural sources of free glutamate acid.

    I agree but I'm staying off yeast - someone asked what the natural flavouring was in the AWT ones and there was nothing nasty....or so the reply stated... we'll see.

    I ordered some of the AWT instant beef gravy. However I just noticed on the jar it has yeast extract in the ingredients...

    I have found a website that sells pouches of ready-made gravy that might be an alternative. The ingredients look fairly inoffensive: http://www.ilumiworld.com/products/view/beef_gravy

    I've done pretty good using water + a bunch of spices instead of stock for something that is very slow cooking. Basically milder herbal/veggie ones, like celery leaf, basil, marjoram, etc. Works quite well.
