What is Bouillon Cube or Granules?
Bouillon cubes are made from chicken, fish, meat or vegetables, along with oil and salt that is dried or dehydrated. When placed into water -- such as a soup pot -- the cube dissolves and its flavors are released. According to Wise Geek, bouillon was first introduced in the late 1800s as a cheaper and more convenient alternative to meat.
