Boxed kosher chicken broth?

We live in an area without a great selection of kosher food, so I'm not sure if such a product exists or not. The only kosher chicken broth I can buy here is Manashewitz and Rokeach, both of which are very salty and have MSG. I end up using the imagine fake chicken instead, but does anyone make a good quality prepared chicken broth?

  1. I've seen Tabachnik (sp?) boxed chicken, and beef broths with a hechsher. I haven't tried them, but when I asked about them on another board, someone said that they were also very high in sodium.

      1. It's actually a mailing list, not a message board -
        the jewish-food list.
        The recipe archives which are open to everyone, are at http://www.jewishfood-list.com/
        There is information on that site about how to join the list, where members exchange kosher recipes, and kosher food info.
        Once you join, you have access to the message archive as well, which contains many more recipes than the recipe archive, as well as other kosher food info. I've been a member for quite a while, and it's a great list.

        1. Considering how cheap and accessable salt is I never quite understood why soups have such a huge quantity of salt - some as much as 50% RDA. There are plenty of people around that have to limit their salt intake that it makes sense to ease up on it and let the consumer decide just how salty they like their soups.

          1. I just tried the Tabatchnik broth. I would recommend cutting it in half with water - the sodium content is way high. But I liked the taste slightly better than Manischewitz canned broth.
