Helpful hints

  • Look for reduced sodium broth containing 500 milligrams sodium or less per 1 cup serving. Avoid low sodium broths and bouillons containing potassium chloride—it’s very high in potassium. Recommended brands include Health Valley No Salt, Fat Free Chicken Broth (800-423-4846), Kitchen Basics Natural Chicken Stock and Swanson 50% Less Sodium Chicken Broth.
  • If you are on hemodialysis or restricted fluid, be sure to count liquid in the soup as part of your fluid allowance for the day.

Low Sodium Chicken Soup

Should the veggies be dice and boiled separate from the chicken? Dietitian comment: No it works to cook both together but since the chicken is already cooked you could add it after cooking the veggies.

this is good but I think i'd skip buying the low sodium chicken broth. as long as u got real chicken (prefer free range) and make that into soup - maybe save some for other recipe, best broth to use, than buy processed ones.

Low Sodium Chicken Soup

Having read just about every low sodium chicken broth I could find, I can tell you this, the best one, with the least amount of sodium, was also the most expensive, but it's called: Pacific Organic, Range Free Low Sodium Chicken Broth. Under the Nutrition Label: It has only 70mg of sodium for 1 cup of broth. No potassium chloride. 10 calories per cup. 0 fat, 0 cholesterol, 0 sugars, 2grams of protein. Total carbs:1g.

The sodium content and potassium seems extremely high for CKD. Moderator comment: These levels are acceptable for a low sodium, low potassium diet. Comparable low-sodium and reduced-sodium chicken noodle soups range from 140 to 475 mg sodium for only 1 cup. Most low and reduced sodium soups now have potassium chloride added and range from 450 to 800 mg potassium for a one cup serving. and potassium ranges
