I have been unable to find Oxo cubes locally, so e-mailed Unilever to find out what was happening. They have been discontinued.

My problem is that all the other bouillon cubes/sachets etc. that I can find contain soy protein. Does anyone know of an alternative?

Doesn't OXO also make a jar of bouillon? I am sure I am a jar of OXO beef and chicken bouillon in my cupboard, or are these discontined as well?

Codyman,
Thanks for responding. I haven't noticed the jar, I'll look for that tomorrow. I had checked the Oxo sachets and Knorr and McCormick cubes, also the liquid Bovrils - chicken is fine, but not the beef. I don't know what I am going to do if I can't find a substitute for the Oxo Cubes.

Hi,
I have checked for the Oxo bouillon in a jar and can't find it. I found an Oxo French dip in a plastic jar that is safe, but it's not really what I'm looking for. However, unless I find something else I might be forced to use that.
I haven't had many responses here, (only yours, Codyman) so perhaps I should post on the Main Discussion board - what do you think? Someone else out there must be missing Oxo cubes because of soy protein [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I am at home and have the OXO in front of me.
The chicken one say Knorr Chicken OXO In-A- Mug Bouillon base.
The beef one says OXO In-A-Mug Bouillon base. Soybean is listed in the ingredients and at the bottom of the ingredient list, it says May contain traces of milk ingredients.
Here is the phone number to call for questions

KateB,
Can't help. Yet!
I'll try to get in touch with my sister when she gets home from work, and see what she uses.

What about trying envelopes of onion soup? (like Lipton) Not sure if it's safe or not, have you checked? I'll take a look and see if I have any.

Well that would explain why I haven't been able to find the OXO cubes!
I have been using the Bovril liquid, but we do not have any problems with soy.
You can always make very concentrated chicken or beef broth yourself and freeze little cubes in ice cube containers - I did this for a while when the kids were smaller.

Lipton Onion Soup has some form of soy in it.
I spoke to my sister, she doesn't use this stuff at all. But, she did mention there is an imported brand the company starts with Ok... but couldn't remember the name. She doesn't know if it has soy or not because she doesn't use it, but just remembers seeing it in the store.
Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]

Thank you all [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
I have checked out all the Knorr, Oxo and McCormick variations that I could find with no luck.
I need beef bouillon for a few of my family's favourite recipes and will be lost without Oxo cubes!
My son can have soy lecithin and soybean oil with no problem, but all the bouillon cubes/liquid/powders seem to have soy protein, which he can't have. I don't think that the Oxo (unilever) people thought this one out, or at least not from my point of view [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]

I've had a new thought [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Does anyone living in the UK know if the Oxo cubes there are still available and peanut/nut and soy free? If so, I could have my Mum or sisters send me some.
