I like to make my own chicken broth, but there are times when I don’t have any, or it’s not thawed. In those cases I almost always turn to Pacific Natural Foods broths.
That’s why I was thrilled when they contacted me to do a review this fall. As the weather turns cooler and the holidays approach, broths are perfect for making soups, stews, and gravies as well as adding flavor to rice, stuffing, and potato dishes.
I really like all of the Pacific Natural Foods broths. They have great flavor and use natural ingredients. All of their broths are gluten free. You can use their product guide to find out what allergens are in any of their products. You will also find a list of their gluten-free products on the special diets page.
The organic free range chicken broth is probably the product I use the most. The quart size container is usually perfect for making soups. If I need less than a quart for a recipe, I put the remainder in the refrigerator and use it for another meal.
The ingredients in the chicken broth are: Organic chicken broth (filtered water, organic chicken), Organic chicken flavor (organic chicken flavor, sea salt), Natural chicken flavor (chicken stock, salt), Sea salt, Organic evaporated cane juice, Organic onion powder, Turmeric, Organic flavor
One cup does contain 570 mg of sodium, but if you are watching your sodium intake you can opt for the low sodium version which has only 70 mg of sodium.
I have found that pouring from the cartons is a bit tricky. If you try to pour too fast it comes out in bursts and results in splashes. The key is to pour slowly. Don’t tilt the carton much and you will have a nice slow but steady stream without any splashing.
Pacific Natural Foods also makes delicious soups and dairy free beverages. Their hazelnut chocolate is a favorite of mine. If you can eat dairy, they sell gluten-free condensed soups. I have never tried these, but I certainly would if I was eating dairy products.
