True Primal's Tuscan-Style Chicken Soup is just the good soup. They pack as much real food as they can into each pouch, so it's loaded with delicious chunks of chicken and veggies.
They also add extra beef gelatin to the broth, both for the nutritional value and to enhance the feel of the soup. Gelatin contains collagen, which is one of the materials that make up cartilage and bone. Gelatin is also a rich source of the amino acid glycine, important to many metabolic and healing pathways in the human body.About True Primal, in their own words
"True Primal® was created to offer a primal/paleo-friendly alternative to all other canned soups. Many common canned soups are primarily made up of wheat, corn, rice or potatoes. Many soup brands are also thickened with added starches, sweetened with added sugar, or filled with unusual chemicals or hydrogenated oils. Those ingredients might cheaply fill a can, but they are taking up space that could be used for the nutrition available in meat and vegetables. We think that there is a better way."
How does True Primal make this soup the best you've ever bought? Here's what they say:
"True Primal Organic Grass-Fed Beef & Vegetable Soup contains 24 grams of protein per pouch. We're putting as much real food as we can into each pouch, so it’s loaded with beef and veggies! By putting more real food into each pouch, you get more nutrients and also more flavor – you can taste the difference between real food and fillers.
We also add extra beef gelatin to the soup, both for the nutritional value and to enhance the feel of the soup. Gelatin contains collagen, which is one of the materials that make up cartilage and bone. Gelatin is also a rich source of the amino acid glycine, important to many metabolic and healing pathways in the human body."
Here are answers to some of your most important questions!
What about that mastodon logo and the whole "primal" thing? What does that even mean!?
""Primal" means "first" or "fundamental." It's become a popular description for eating the sorts of foods that humans were originally designed to eat.
There are other similar terms, such as "paleo diet" or "caveman" dieting. These refer to a more specific time period (ie, the paleolithic era), and can sometimes get caught up in counter-productive arguments over exactly what each tribe of people was eating where and when. The term "primal" as it refers to foods is generally used a bit more openly to refer to all foods that are high in nutrition and are easily digested by most people. "Ancestral" is also used to describe the broad guidelines for living based on the way humans were built.
Primal (or ancestral, paleo, caveman) living embraces exercise and stress-reduction along with nutrition to achieve optimal health.
We aren't trying to recreate something precisely from history. Chasing down your food is one way to get exercise, but other methods are fine as well. Our logo is is a bit tongue-in-cheek, as we know we won't be serving extinct mastodon any time soon. But that's ok, there are other good foods that aren't extinct, and we hope to bring some to you!"
