Product Review: RC Fine Foods Healthy Foundations Low Sodium GF Chicken Flavored Base

RC Fine Foods Healthy Foundations Low Sodium Gluten-free Chicken Flavored BaseHomemade chicken noodle soup is a soul-warming, nourishing food that’s especially tasty during the cold weather. But the downside of making your own soup is sodium — namely, the sodium found in chicken broth or stock, especially if you have high blood pressure or are prone to retaining fluid.

Short of making your own stock (sometimes you just don’t have time), what else can you use? Here’s an idea — try RC Fine Foods Healthy Foundations Low Sodium Gluten-free Chicken Flavored Base. This gluten-free powder easily dissolves in boiling water, and is great for making soup, sauces, dips, and marinades. Use it as a seasoning or a rub for poultry or meat in place of salt. One teaspoon contains 15 calories, no fat, 3 grams of carbohydrate, and 140 milligrams of sodium. Available in beef flavored and vegetable base versions, too.
