16 Boxed Chicken Broth Brands, Ranked Worst To Best
16. Tabatchnick
Tabatchnick’s Classic Wholesome Chicken Broth, with over 900 milligrams of sodium per cup, is the worst we tasted due to its intense saltiness. FDA guidelines suggest no more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium daily, making 1 cup of this broth almost half the recommended amount, making it hard to cook with.
15. Simple Truth
The packaging for Simple Truth Organic Free Range Chicken Broth states the product comes from free-range chickens and is both fat and gluten-free. In reality, the broth uses organic chicken flavoring, olive oil that contains fat, and yeast extract which may contain gluten, plus so little salt that it's bland.
14. 365
The 365 Organic Chicken Broth from Whole Foods doesn't lie on its packaging, but it has a watery consistency and bland taste with only a subtle hint of chicken flavor. Ingredients like organic celeriac and carrot juice are more dominant, giving the broth a vegetal taste instead of a rich poultry flavor.
13. Pacific Foods
Pacific Foods Organic Free Range Chicken Broth is a gluten-free, non-GMO, fat-free product with a rich and luscious flavor and a good chicken taste. However, the broth is on the pricier side and contains organic dextrose, a natural sweetener that may put off those who like to sweeten broths themselves.
12. Happy Belly
Whole Foods’ sister brand, Happy Belly from Amazon, has a chicken broth with a much more intense chicken flavor and more well-rounded taste. This flavor is likely due to the inclusion of small amounts of yeast extract and chicken fat, taking away some nutritional value for those watching their gluten or fat intake.
