Beef broth is a mainstay in many households and can be used to make gravy, soup, stews, casseroles and much more. Does Progresso® 100% Natural Beef Broth measure up?
Price and Availability
I recently purchased a 907g (32 oz) carton of Progresso® 100% Natural Beef Broth for just $1 from my local 99¢ shop, which was a great deal, as beef broth usually costs much more than that.
Each 240g (1 cup) serving of Progresso® 100% Natural Beef Broth contains 20 calories, no fat, or cholesterol, 850mg sodium, 3g carbohydrate, 1g sugar and 1g protein. This product is fat-free and cholesterol-free, which is not immediately apparent from the carton until you turn it around and check the nutrition facts. However, Progresso® 100% Natural Beef Broth is fairly high in sodium, as a single serving contains over a third of your daily sodium allowance.
Progresso® 100% Natural Beef Broth isFree From the Following
Progresso® 100% Natural Beef Broth contains no preservatives, artificial flavours or MSG, is 99% fat-free, and is gluten-free.
My husband used Progresso® 100% Natural Beef Broth when he was making beef and vegetable stew. He used the broth to help enhance the taste of the cubed beef and to add extra richness and body to the meal. Even before I tasted the stew, I could tell that I would like it, as the aromas that were wafting from the kitchen were amazing. The stew was rich and full-bodied. The beef broth really worked well as the base for our meal.
I was very impressed with Progresso® 100% Natural Beef Broth. It had a wonderful taste, which made the stew hearty, rich and delicious. I was also impressed with the fact that this was a fat-free product. The next day, when I went to heat up leftovers, it was great to see that there was not a layer of fat sitting on top of the stew, which I find very off-putting. My only concern was that it was a little too salty. I would like to see a lower sodium beef broth product. I would recommend this product.
