stock cube

Definition

Food

  • A mixture of salt, MSG, vegetable and/or meat extracts and various flavourings pressed into soft crumbly cubes or blocks each individually wrapped. One stock cube will usually make 0.4 litres (0.75 pints) of stock. The salt and fat content and their flavour make them unsuitable for the finest cooking.
