Many don’t realize that sodium occurs naturally in foods you wouldn’t even think of...foods like fresh vegetables, fresh poultry and meat, and even milk and dairy products. Taste alone may not reveal which foods are high in sodium. It’s all in your control if you just choose the right foods and take a little extra time in sizing up what’s best for you. An important step is to read nutrition labels and compare the sodium content of similar foods.
At Boar’s Head, our research and development has always been driven to create high quality food. Having lower sodium products is nothing new for us. Since the company began, we have developed our products to serve friends and family plentifully; always with a dedication to eating well.
The taste of Boar’s Head Brand products comes from the quality of our ingredients – pure pork, turkey, chicken and beef, combined with real spices and no artificial ingredients – making it unnecessary to overuse salt as a flavor enhancer. We are proud to say that our meats, cheeses, condiments and spreads contain no gluten†, artificial colors or flavors, added MSG, fillers, by-products or trans fat*.
†All Boar’s Head meats, cheeses, condiments and hummus are gluten free.*No trans-fat from partially hydrogenated oils.
