[where to find] Chicken broth? [stock]

Do they sell chicken broth here? The ones I used to use in the US were in tetra paks or in cans. I got the ones with no MSG and low sodium which were healthies but gave more flavor than using plain water. I know they have buillon cubes here, but they're loaded with MSG so I don't use them. Is there something here that I can use?

I don't want to make my own either...

Re: Chicken broth?

There's a brand of chicken stock powder sold in Coop in a small black tub. Check the ingredients list -- to assure yourself it doesn't contain MSG.
I'm using it and it's good. (Sorry I can't remember the brand name exactly.)

you can buy clear stock in cans in Coop, look out for Consomme (poule). If you're in zurich i'm sure you'll find demi-glas in Jelmoli or Globus.

That'll be the COOP "Fine Food" brand chicken stock powder. I find these stocks to be quite good. Before this particular stock came out there weren't many options for non-msg soup bases here in Switzerland.

Great! I'll take a look at Co-op, guess I've been a Migros fan for too long.

You could try a health food shop (Reformhaus, e.g. Reformhaus Müller - there's one in Baden, apparently). Maybe they have a healthier alternative.

I'm pretty sure it does contain MSG, disguised in the ingredients list as "spices".

The canned "consomme (poule)" doesn't seem to be available.

I found chicken broth in a jar at the Sihlcity Coop, but it was 5.90 for 400g, so not cost effective (you could buy a cooked half chicken for that price).

The top of the line chicken broth comes from a Swiss company called Nahrin. They sell a bunch of high quality food products, usually you can find them at fairs. I only buy their broth now as it is the best you can quality you can buy. You order via phone or online, visit their site:

http://www.nahrin.ch/htm/produkt/Huehnerbouillon

Once you make your first order, every 6 months or so your local dealer will call and ask if you need a top-up. They have lots of other great products, soups, spices, vitamins, sauces, etc. Really top quality stuff with no artificial ingredients. Check them out.
