Pacific Foods Broth Review & Giveaway

Organic Beef BrothOrganic Vegetable BrothOrganic Free Range Chicken Broth

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.

If you have never tried the Pacific Natural Foods broths, or even if you have, be sure to enter the giveaway below.

  21. Kandm says

    I have tried their broths and like that they are natural and organic. I just used their beef broth for a stew we made. They are very useful when you don’t have your own on hand.

  22. Shannon J. says

    I love their condensed soups, but haven’t tried their broths, but gluten free and free is always a bonus! :)

  23. Cindy Moore-Sailors says

    I’m an avid user of Pacific Natural Foods not only are they gluten free but there are no hidden soy or corn products in them either. I find the broths to be a flavorful addition to my recipes!

  24. Janis S. says

    I used their vegetable broth, don’t remember what recipe I used it in, but do remember that it was good.

  25. Kristi says

    I love their chicken broth!! I buy it at Costco in the case but I’m out of it right now!!!!

  37. ruby says

    use all of their soups. with the condensed cr. soups can now make all my old recipes without making the cr. soup from scratch.

  38. Christine says

    I have tried their product and think they are great, definatly a favorite for broths since I dont make my own! (yet)

  39. miriam says

    We are having their tomato soup (with grilled cheese sandwiches) for lunch. Also used their beef broth in last nights dinner. Yummy giveaway, thank you.

  40. Sue says

    I use the Pacific chicken broth. I love using it. It is from free range chickens.

  41. Jenny says

    I, too, use Pacific broths for my “back up”. I like to make a quick bedtime snack with a little gelatin and salt in a hot cup of broth as a sleep aid.

  42. says

    I liked them on FB, tweeted it (@changingchick), already subscribed via rss (with a different email), and I have never used the broths but am very interested in trying them! It’s been hard for me to find a good GF broth that doesn’t taste like salt to me!

  43. Kristen says

    I love Pacific broths and soups. They have made the transition to a Gluten Free lifestyle much easier.

  44. Patty says

    I have not tried this brand. Recently, my fiance bought a different brand in the store where the canned version is GF, but the box version is NOT! Was he disappointed when I told him I couldn’t use the box version.

  45. Laura says

    I’ve tried the low sodium chicken broth and the mushroom broth. The mushroom broth is especially good for making GF condensed cream of mushroom soup for crock pot cooking. Thought I was going to have to give up that recipe when hubby was diagnosed! I’ve friended both you and Pacific Foods and am about to share on FB now. I also just subscried by email. Thanks.

  46. Kori says

    I love Pacific stocks. I only use them since going gluten free. I get you blogs also.

  47. Phebe Bennett says

    I haven’t yet tried their broths. I will the first chance I get.
