Kitchen Basics chicken stock

Early on in our search for JT safe foods I was surprised by how many products contained ingredients that were unexpected. I was really surprised to find that some chicken stock/broth contained milk. Since then we have found several chicken broths (or stocks) that are safe for JT. Recently, though, I found Kitchen Basics chicken stock and was really pleasantly surprised. Not only does this stock have a really rich and delicious flavor they actually test their stock for trace amounts of allergens.

From their box:

We reduce the risk of allergen reactions by specifying that our ingredients must not contain milk, eggs, peanuts, gluten, soy, tree nuts, fish, shellfish or corn. Each production run is tested for the absence of these allergens to 5ppm.

  2. Do you happen to know how many ppm is considered safe to allergens? As I said in other comments, I’ve had allergies my whole life but have never been able to find info on that!

    I actually saw Kitchen Basics broth at the store the other day – someone in front of me was buying it, and I noticed it was gluten-free. I might check it out next time I go.

    • I think there are different regulations for different foods. For a food to be labeled “free” of an allergen it has to test somewhere between 5 and 20 ppm’s. But again, I think it’s different for different allergens. I just did a quick search too and couldn’t find anything cut and dry about how it works exactly. The stock is really delicious!
