Last fall, I posted gluten-free alternatives for soups and sauces. I knew about Pacific Natural Foods’ amazing options, but since they hadn’t come to Canada yet, I focused on options that you can make at home, since they give you so much more control over what you’re eating.
Here we are six months later, and I’m happy to announce that Pacific Natural Foods products are now available in Canada! I’ve seen them at Pete’s Frootique and even at big-name grocery stores like Sobeys and Atlantic Superstore.
Pacific Naturals products are organic and made using real ingredients. The taste difference is really unbelievable. They have a list of soups suitable for various diets (including wheat free, gluten-free, dairy-free corn-free, vegan, and vegetarian) here. A thorough allergen chart can be found here. Not all items are available in Canada yet, but I’ve seen condensed soups, hearty carton soups, and their broths.
The downside, of course, is that their products are tremendously expensive compared to other brands. I paid $3.99 for a 10 ounce carton of cream of mushroom condensed soup. The taste difference really was worth it, though, so I urge you to give it a try. Or, check out our soups and sauces post for some more economical alternatives!
