Do Bouillon Cubes/Powder go bad?
I tossed into the soup the last 2 bouillon cubes in the jar. Then, as I threw it away, I looked at the jar's expiration date: May 1979. Am I going to die?
Bouillon cubes can last for quite a while. Thirty years may be pushing that limit, though, as they lose flavor over time. Typically, they are good to use for a year maybe two; that depends on how they were stored, though. If they were in a dry cool place, they should be fine for while. They are loaded with fat and salt which are natural preservatives, anyway. Although dying is unlikely, it is definitely possible to get sick.
