Chicken stock

To be absolutely clear what we are talking about, let’s start with terminology. Chicken bouillon, broth or stock – what is the difference?

  • Bouillon (bouillon cubes) is dehydrated chicken broth. It is made from dehydrated chicken stock, vegetables, fat, a variety of seasonings, and salt.
  • Stock is made from bones.
  • Broth is made mostly from meat or vegetables.

Boiling bones makes a thicker liquid – stock. Cooking meet without bones makes a thinner liquid – broth. Actually, stock and broth do have small differences and usually are used as synonyms.

So, getting back to the point. Homemade chicken stock is rich in essential proteins and healthy fats, but it is considerably richer in collagen than chicken broth. That makes chicken stock much better for your skin and overall health. Collagen helps keep your skin looking youthful and vibrant.
