Does anyone know if you are allowed borvil to drink, I don’t have a jar so I don’t know what is in it. As a beef extract and salty it might be good.

High protein… may mess up your limit if you are using one… but then again I doubt a teaspoon full weighs much…

I have had headache for two weeks now and think it may be down to not having enough Salt. I have read about Bouillon but have never heard of it (in the UK). Is this essentially the same as OXO and Bovril? If so can people advise if this is good for stopping headaches i.e. more Sodium?

Just another word for stock - so yes.

Kettle and fire bone broth 10 times the price of bovril. :disappointed_relieved:
