  • no it counts as a base to what ever you are's only beef flavored. they don't have any meat in them. what are you trying to make. if you are veggie, then go for something like mushrooms.

  • no, it just has the flavor...beef broth has the beef flavor and chicken has chicken soup

  • It depends on why you're asking. If you're fasting and aren't supposed to eat meat, then a lot of times, they will allow broth (but not always).

    If you're asking for vegetarian meal purposes, then yes, it counts.

    Because they use beef to flavor the meat - beef fat, beef extract, and beef products are all ingredients listed on my beef bouillon, which is what is used to make beef broth, whether it's made at home by you or by a manufacturer and sold pre-made.

  • Beef gravy counts as fat, as do salad dressings and the like. Beef broth doesn't count count as a fat, it is a cooking base. You can skim any fat off the broth to lower fat or trim the beef of fat before making broth.
