Nutrition facts are approximate and do not include noodles.
Stock over broth?  Yes!  Stock has a deeper depth a flavor due to how long it is cooked for and the fact that it is cooked with the bones and marrow.  Also stock is not salted as opposed to a broth or bouillon which usually is. However, broth or bouillon may be substituted if desired. Adjust the salt as needed.
