Mexico .- The cubes of consommé of chicken are used almost daily in the kitchens of the different cities of the country and also of the world, as it is a component that gives a great flavor to most of the foods and highlights the flavor of some of its ingredients .
Recently through a study published by Consumer Magazine revealed the specific content of these cubes and if they comply with what is indicated on their labels.

But … What does it contain?
The study carried out by the Consumer Magazine, indicates that the main ingredient is salt, but also chicken powder that is made from dehydrated meat.
