STAMFORD, Conn.—Saffron Road introduced a line of three all-natural, halal certified premium broths. The gluten-free broths may be used with vegetables, soups or leftovers and can promote digestive, joint and respiratory health.

The line includes the following varieties:

  • Artisan Roasted Halal Chicken Broth: A low-fat broth made with Certified Humane® chicken, hand-picked ingredients, roasted root vegetables, bay leafs, thyme and no monosodium glutamate (MSG).
  • Traditional Halal Chicken Broth: A low-sodium broth made with all-natural halal chicken, vegetables, herbs and no MSG.
  • Classic Culinary Halal Vegetable Broth: A low-sodium, vegan blend of carrots, onions, celery, tomatoes, parsley, leeks, mushrooms and no MSG or gelatin.

There are variations between the three broths, but the ingredients that pop out at me with flashing yellow lights are Stock of various meats and vegetables, Natural Flavor(s), and Spice(s).

Almost thought we had a new item on the market thinking about MSG sensitive people, but we don't.  Or at least I would not trust any of these broths.
