I think the very process of making a "stock powder" would lend itself to either the creation of something that I know I would react to, or the process would need different additives along the way in order to create the "powder." Personally I stay away from all "powders," ha, ha recipe for disaster! Share if you find something though :D

yup... ive discovered that goes for me too. anything on an ingredients label that says "...powder" is almost sure to have an effect on me.
its quite frustrating, becoz obviously real powdered foods (just dried & ground) have been here forever and should be fine. unfortunately, commercial processors have a lot of leeway given to them in labelling language
i was having the same struggle when i first got on this board- the hunt for soup base without baddies is actually what drew me here
look up the string titled "are there any safe brands of readymade chicken broth"... DebA and several others posted some GREAT tips and suggestions for getting around the dilemma
hope that helps!

Soup bases and stock are the two things i really miss too, Bonana. I now make my own and im getting better with practise!! Im quite embarressed by how little i knew about real cooking and baking.

hi anon, at the top of this page, click on the Search Button (it has a little magnifying glass next to it)...
then on the search page, type "Better Than Boullion" in the keyword box and check the option marked "and" to search for the whole phrase.
i just did this and the top hit is the post i was referring to, titled "are there any safe brands of readymade chicken broth"
as far as registering, i know, i was stumped too at first
there actually isnt any registration- just choose a user name when you post, and use "msgkills" as the password
this is really a great bunch of people on this board, everyone is super nice and so helpful, so please feel free to post back with all your questions & discoveries... and spread the word!

hi again anon...
i keep pondering what you said about feeling like you should be more ill than you presently are...
i think "presently" is definitely the key word there. you see, a lot of this stuff wasn't even in our food 10 years ago. ive been a 'health foody' for a lot of years (not that that did any good ;) ...so i can remember when the whole 'UMAMI' thing came out, thinking- oh no, that doesnt sound like something good to me...
but i always figured that if one didnt want to eat certain things, they could be easily avoided.
sadly, thats just not so... Big Food & Pharma keeps finding new ways to hide the addictive glutamates which keep us buying their products, and with the rate of new processes & chems being approved every year, it seems like it wont be long before anything you dont grow yourself is FrankenFood.
i want to applaud you! you care for your family enough to pursue good health for them, and that is no easy task! i have just started on this site also, and also have much to learn... i know how overwhelming it feels to find out how big the task is... but there are some wonderful, caring people on this board who have loads of experience and wisdom to share, so please keep checking back often!
hugs to you, and all your babies
