Cambell Soups Complaint - Too much salt! - Most cambell soups being sold

Review by Rickybnb on 2009-12-15
There is enough salt in most of these soups to kill a horse! Why do these companies insist on marketing stuff that is detrimental to our health? and I was very upset to see at the Supermarket tonight that many of the Cambell soups are now marked "NO MSG" ... alongside of cans with no markings which probably have msg in them ... MSG is NOT something I would want to consume ... just like excess salt. When are these companies going to give it up and start making foods that are healthy?

Doesn't Campbells make a low sodium soup? I thought they did.

they used to have them around but they're not popular so I haven't seen them around in a few years.

I'm not sure if there are many low-sodium brands out there.

but there is a way to get something similar...

if you want to make your own tomato based soup ... get Tomato Puree - it's pretty low in sodium. most brands I've found are 15mg per 1/4 cup.

granted you still have to make it yourself but.. it's not bad

They make a healthy choice brand, but hey, no salt, no flavor

is that the "very low sodium" can?

good stuff. it tastes a bit off at first but it's OK
especially if you don't want a lotta salt :)

Salt, in and of itself, is not a bad thing. Some people have a problem with it, many, many people don't. Like the huge majority, I prefer Campbells just the way it is. There are low sodium brands out there, buy them, but don't speak for the rest of us, because you don't represent our preferences.

Low sodium canned soups taste like cr*p to me. Because of this, and the fact that I've had hypertension since my mid 20's, it's almost always homemade soup for me, since I can control the sodium and still keep my meal tasty.

Gee OP, guess we should just stop eating anything that tastes good. Half the stuff out there is bad for us but are we going to stop eating it? Heck no!

Processed foods will most likely never be healthy. The processing pretty well leeches out all nutrients. They put salt in it to add flavor back. Want healthy? Buy fresh or fresh frozen. Want healthy soup? Make your own.
