New SwansonFlavor Boost delivers delicious concentrated broth flavor in a convenient liquid packet. It is 100 percent natural with no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives, and no MSG added.* The Campbell chefs developed SwansonFlavor Boost to be used as a finishing touch in meal preparation, bringing a balanced, seasoned, flavor to stir-fried or skillet dishes, pasta, vegetables and more, without adding excess liquid. It is available in three flavor varieties: chicken, vegetable and beef flavored. While SwansonFlavor Boost is an ideal way to round out a dish, stock is an essential foundation for a number of main course dishes, gravies and sauces, and is prized for its robust, meaty notes.

Swanson Unsalted Stocks are 100 percent natural and contain no added MSG.* “The Swanson brand is committed to addressing the changing needs and demands of today's cooks.
