Helpful hints

  • Look for reduced sodium broth containing less than 500 milligrams sodium per 1 cup serving. Avoid low sodium broth that contains 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 a lower protein diet adjust the portion to match your meal plan.
