Walden Farms Calorie Free Ranch Dressing Review

Walden Farms Calorie Free Ranch DressingWalden Farms prides itself on producing calorie free options of your favorite sauces, dressings, syrups and condiments. Ever one to cut calories where I can, a bottle of Walden Farms Calorie Free Ranch Dressing looked like it may be worth the $2.89 investment, considering 2 tablespoons of Kraft Ranch Dressing is 120 calories and Waldens Farms has 0 calories.

What I noticed when I first used Walden Farms Calorie Free Ranch Dressing, is that there is not much body to it. It is thicker than water, mind you, but is still pretty low on the viscosity scale. Also, the flavor could be stronger, although there is a nice subtle creamy ranch dressing taste. The artificial sweetener that is used is sucralose (Splenda) and I didn't detect any after-taste.

As is traditional with Walden Farms' products, their Ranch Dressing contains no calories, sugar, carbohydrates, gluten, cholesterol or preservatives. The ingredient list is not appalling and contains: triple filtered purified water, white vinegar, cellulose gel, salt, natural flavors, onion powder, garlic powder, sour cream flavoring (non dairy), lemon juice, white pepper, xanthan gum, lactic acid, parsley, cayenne pepper, food color and sucralose. The one thing you do have to watch is the 230 mg of Sodium (9% of the RDA) per 2 tablespoons.

Walden Farms Calorie Free Chocolate, Caramel and Marshmallow Dips were a big FAIL here on Iateapie.net, but it seems they improved a lot with this product. Walden Farms Calorie Free Ranch Dressing is a good option for those who are watching their weight and looking to cut calories without eating less - it's not spectacular, but it's good enough.
