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
jazz8610 says:

I tried this with leftover rotisserie chicken and it is fabulous. Of course, I had to have dumplings. I found a dumpling recipe on Davita. I still had a comfort food and stayed within my nutritional values.

Low Sodium Chicken Soup
Consumer17 says:

Found recipe that uses whole chicken that you cover with water and bring to a boil, add garlic and ginger, simmer for 60 min., then add chopped veggies/parsley, fresh sage, oregano, Rosemary, parsley. Delish and avoids using bought chicken broth. Other ingredients are Tbsp. Chopped jalapeño. Ground pepper. If on blood thinner may omit the fresh ginger.

Very Good soup. I did modify the recipe. I use Pacific Organic Low Sodium Chicken Broth. I added 1 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp black pepper and 1 tsp Dash Original and since the broth only had 70mg sodium per serving I added 1/4tsp salt.

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
