New USDA-certified organic broths are low in fat, gluten free
Tualatin, OR – Pacific Natural Foods has led the broth category in the natural foods channel with its Organic Free-Range Chicken Broth.* New to the Pacific Natural Foods broth lineup are: Organic Low Sodium Vegetable Broth and Organic Beef Broth. The 32 oz. broths join the existing flavors including: Organic Free-Range Chicken Broth, Organic Low Sodium Free-Range Chicken Broth, Free-Range Chicken Broth, Beef Broth and Organic Mushroom Broth.
The new USDA-certified organic broths are examples of the company’s promise to offer the best of The Delicious Taste of Nature™, noted Kevin Tisdale, director of marketing at Pacific Natural Foods. Last year, the company’s broths increased 45 percent in conventional stores and 26 percent in natural foods stores.*
“Our organic and natural broths are perfect for any favorite recipe,” Tisdale said. “The Organic Low Sodium Vegetable Broth also meets a growing demand in the marketplace for broths with lower sodium content.”
Pacific Natural Foods’ new Organic Low Sodium Vegetable Broth has only 140 mg. of sodium per 1 cup serving, which is about four times less sodium than conventional brands. The suggested retail price ranges from $2.49-$2.99.
Packaged Facts (Oct. 2004) stated that formulating low sodium foods is not new. However, warnings from health professionals and ever-changing American diet concerns may elevate low sodium to a status equal to that of low fat, carbs and sugar.
According to the American Heart Association, recent estimates show that nearly one in three U.S. adults has high blood pressure. High blood pressure can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure or kidney damage. One way to control this condition is to eat less sodium. However, while the average American adult consumes 4,000 to 6,000 milligrams daily, the recommended daily allowance for sodium is 2,400 milligrams.
