Celery Salt

Celery salt offers a salty bite and a pleasant aromatic aesthetic. These factors mesh well with the other ingredients, further solidifying the recipe.

Turmeric and Paprika

Both used primarily for color and secondarily for flavor. These two ingredients tie everything together in a since.

Powdered Chicken Bouillon FAQs

Does this recipe contain MSG?

The spices I but do not contain MSG but it is always a smart idea to check your spice labels to make sure.

What is nutritional yeast?

Nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast product that gives this recipe an “umami” type flavor. You can buy this ingredient in flakes, granules, and powder. I usually buy the flakes!

Is this powdered chicken bouillon gluten free?

This is gluten free, but you should be safe and check to make sure your spices are all gluten free!

Is all chicken flavoring vegan?

Not all chicken flavoring is vegan, so you have to be careful in what you buy.  Some products use dehydrated chicken stock, milk, or other dairy products.

What are some powdered chicken bouillon brands?

The most common brands, I have seen, selling a similar product are Orrington Farms, Dark Horse, Urban Platter, better than Bouillon, and trader joes has one too!

Powdered Chicken Bouillon Tips and Tricks

Make Sure Your Spices are up to Date

If your spices are outdated, then your spice mix won’t be awesome no matter how hard you try. The USDA says that your spices will last up to 2-3 years, but if you are holding your spices that long, you should probably just replace them anyways.

Check the Spice Labels

It’s imperative you CHECK the back of your spice labels. Sometimes manufacturers can sneak unwanted ingredients in there like MSG, Gluten, or Dairy.


Make this recipe fit your needs! You may like certain spices more than others. Once you try my recipe, make some tweaks to it, and make it yours! You can literally add any spices you want to this recipe and I bet you it will rock! Do YOU!

Use a Food Processor

If you don’t have one its not the end of the world, you can still make this recipe fine. I just like using the food processor because its easier to use the pulse function. Using this pulse function really helps out because if you blend the vegan chicken stock powder to much it turns into a puree.


Be sure to keep your vegan chicken stock powder in an airtight container, I like to use a glass jar with a good seal! You always want to find a cool, and dry space to store this spice to preserve its freshness longer! Another tip on storage is to make sure you keep this spice, and all others, out of direct light for long periods of time.
