Just because you buy something that says organic from Whole Foods, does not mean it is the best choice. Let’s compare these two brands.
Here is the back.
The first questionable ingredient I see is cane sugar. Why does sugar need to be in vegetable broth? There is also oil in here. When I make my broth at home, I don’t add oil at all. Lastly, I see that scary term “natural flavor”. I tend to stay away from products with that on the ingredient list.
So let’s look at another broth. This one is a much better choice.
Now let’s look at the back.
This is a perfect example of a product to buy. You can identify all the ingredients and there is also no sugar or oil in it. This comparison just reiterates how important it is to read ALL labels, even organic labels. I love Pacific Foods and would highly recommend this product if you are in need of a store bought soup broth.
UPDATE: I now make my own broth. Super easy! See the recipe here.
