The Difference Between Broths and Bases

Have you ever goChicken Base JPEGne down the soup isle and found the section with the broths and meat bases? Did you think to yourself, what is there difference? Or what is a meat base used for? The answer is that there is a HUGE difference between the two in quality, price, and convenience.

The first thing you need to know about a chicken broth is that it has a shelf life of 14 days once opened and you only get a few servings out of a box. In addition to that, you cannot make the broth stronger, but only weaker by adding water.

Bases, on the other hand, are not packaged in liquid form. A jar of Anne’s Chicken Base contains 76 (1 tsp.) servings of real meat, salt, and other natural flavors. All you have to do is spoon a desired amount out and melt it into a boiling pot of water.

So let’s compare the two. Swanson’s Chicken Broth sells at Wal-Mart for $2 and can make 4 (1 cup) servings at 50 cents per serving. Anne’s Chicken Base sells for $6 and can make 76 (1 tsp.) servings at 8 cents per serving. In addition to a better price, Anne’s chicken base lasts longer and is a better way to enhance your meat by using real meat and natural flavors.
