Label Comparisons

Just because something looks alike, doesn't mean that they are the same. Prepping for today's dinner, I needed chicken stock. Reading labels at the store is my thing so I wanted to pass this tid bit along to you. 
 Here we have two cartons of organic, low sodium free range chicken broth. One is an HEB brand & the other Kroger. Let's compare...
If you notice the calories, HEB has 10. Yet Kroger brand has 0 calories. Now let's focus on the sodium...HEB's only has 70mg of sodium, while Kroger has 140mg. A whopping double amount! As you read the labels you'll notice there are other differences, but the main comparison is the amount of sodium in the products. 

Next time you go and compare. Just like snowflakes, no two are just alike.
