does such an item exist?

I'm looking for a low sodium chicken broth in a can or box/container. Does such a product exist and if so, could you please tell me where I can purchase it? Way too much sodium in canned chicken soup and would love to find a kosher alternative. Right now, I use Imagine's No Chicken Broth, but it, too contains too much sodium, although not as much as Manischewitz or Rokeach soups. I'm not always up to making my own chicken stock or soup. Any help would be most appreciated.

        Shoelace, I'll check out Tabachnick. What is 5t?

    2. if you have high blood pressure already, these ideas may not help, but if you are trying to reduce your salt intake as a preventative health measure, then we may be in the same boat. Osem "Natural" is a no MSG Parve Chicken soup powder that's also 10% lower in salt per teaspoon (but salt is still the first ingredient). i like being able to control the salt and flavor strength with powder. you can enhance the flavor further with oregano and onion.

        Yes, my DH has somewhat elevated blood pressure and the doc suggests we go lower sodium as much as possible. Not crazy about powders, but Joe, you make a good point about controlling the salt. I'll rethink that. Nice to see Manischewitz has a lower sodium chicken broth. I'd have to order it from the site as none of the kosher markets or regular markets (kosher sections) near me carry it. With the shipping, though, I'm probably better off sticking with the No Chicken Broth as the sodium contents are practically the same. Thanks, everyone, for your help. I appreciate the feedback!

          Speak to the managers at your local stores. They may be willing to stock the item and see if it sells.
