Knorr Stock Pot is a rich, concentrated, premium stock. Knorr chefs have carefully selected meats, herbs and spices that are gently simmered into a concentrated little pot. Stock Pot melts easily into water to produce a full flavoured stock or can be added straight into your dish to bring outs its natural flavour.

Our new Stockpot gives you the rich taste and flavour of stock you made yourself. Its made with natural ingredients with no flavour enhancers, artificial colours or preservatives or added MSG and we simmer it slowly just like you would.

The Gel adds a certain lip-smacking quality that powdered stocks(or as they sometimes known, salt) cant. I've tried the beef one for the first time as a base for a Beef Gravy - was pretty damned good. For 12.5p a pot you can't go wrong really.

It may be on offer for the vegetable too I didn't check that - I imagine it will be.

great idea these but have you seen the salt contents incredibly high

Seen vouchers for 50p off next to these at my Morrison's store, Cant remember if they were for use in Morrison's only though :?
Could possibly get these for 48p if Tesco accept the voucher :thumbsup:

Great price. Agreed that they are very salty so don't add any more to your cooking. Heat added

Thanks for the tip re: the 50p off voucher will be great if it works. Rep added

i think many people have been put off these by the advert.

quite clearly he doesnt use these in his home cooking and yes he is a ****.

"quite simply the best thing to come from cooking apart from me" or something along those lines

Actually, I think he's even used them in his restaurant. He adds things like regular tomato sauce in to his recipes too.

He is calss, tells it as it is. Maybe a bit up his own **** but a damn good chef

The money had nothing to do with it though. ;-)

Check your local market for these as I got 10 for £1

I just bought 8 of each from Waitrose for £1.99 a pop! So very good deal!

Theyre great when making soups.

Knorr can keep their MSG-pots! Thanks anyway.

oh dear. i discovered an intollerence to MSG when i was in Asia in November :\

There's no msg in these but still rubbish ingredients

msg? whats that?

mono sodium glutamate - flavour enhancer used in poor quality chinese cooking. Causes headaches and hair loss amongst other things. Found in most stock cubes and all british chinese takeaways.

I think there is a lot of urban myth mixed up in a lot of misinformation there!

I would suggest anyone interested do their own detailed search on the whole issue, and form their own opinion, there is a lot of information and misinformation, and it isn't something you should plan on finishing the same day! Not something I would think could ever be discussed sensibly at all on this site, hence my suggestion that people look in other places, with a healthy regard for cranks sites as well as vested interests in selling it!

As MSG is a natural component of Soy Sauce, then it might be safe to assume you will never be able to have Chinese food again, (certainly not away from home!) if indeed you are sensitive to it.
I would pragmatically suggest if you have eaten Chinese food without any problems, then simply forget about it.

Does the product relative to this thread ACTUALLY have MSG anyway?
Perhaps someone who has a pack can post the ingredients, then we can discuss the items itself instead of alleged food intolerancse, which may or may not even be an issue!

Found the ingredients online:
Water, Salt, Beef Fat (5.0%), Yeast Extract, Vegetables in varying proportions (2.3%) [Carrot, Leek], Sugar, Flavourings (contains Milk and Mustard), Beef Extract (1.3%), Vegetable Fats and Oils, Thickeners (Xanthan Gum, Locust Bean Gum), Colour (Burnt Sugar Caramel), Herbs (Parsley, Lovage), Rosemary Extract, Apple Juice Concentrate, Carrot Juice Concentrate, Onion Juice Concentrate, Spices (Pepper, Paprika), Garlic.

So yes, Yeast Extrat has MSG so there is MSG in them.

Now whether or not it is a problem is ANOTHER ISSUE entirely.

I highly doubt it, your body produces Glutamate every day. MSG (Mono Sodium Glutamate) is just Glutamate stabilised in salt and water (monsodium). More likely you were allergic to something else.

Interesting article for you:
guardian.co.uk/lif…es3

Don't listen to non-qualified nutritionists like poo lady Gillian Mackeith, or in fact sometimes doctors when it comes to diet, speak with a qualified dietitian, and ask their advice.

Actually yeast extract does not contain msg, it just serves a similar function. Incidentally, I have eaten marmite (which is largely yeast extract) on a daily basis most of my life and it has never caused me problems. However, like clockwork after every chinese meal I end up with a headache.

I would refer to my previous postings.

good deal, i don't like them myself because i think they taste very salty even when mixed with other stuff to make a soup. however my mum loves them and always looks for deals involving them.
