Low-sodium broth: skip it for sodium free

The lesson is always check for yourself, never believe any on-package advertising or hype language.

I blogged earlier this week about some low-sodium soups I’ve tried, unsuccessfully taste-wise. But I’ve also been searching for sodium free broth to use in things like turkey when I make a whole one for a special occasion.

Low-sodium broth is relatively easy to find. You have to look harder to find sodium-free broth, but it is out there. But always check the nutrition labels for the real story. You may find some so-called no salt added broth has more sodium than one calling itself low-sodium. That was the case for me with the broths shown below.

Low sodium broths are not created equal, always read the nutrition panels.
