Campbell's Soup has announced that they are reducing the sodium content of their signature T\omato Soup. They boast that they are lowering it by one-third. They are boasting that it is low sodium.
As someone on a low-sodium diet due to end-stage renal disease, I have to laugh. Reducing the sodium content to 480 mg is admirable, but it's not exactly low sodium.
In a typical low sodium diet, you are allowed about 2000 mg of sodium. One bowl of soup would give you almost a fourth of your daily allowance. That's only one-half a can. The figures are for a "serving." There ae 2 servings per can, so an entire can is 960 mg. Also, that doesn't include any sodium in milk, which is typically added to tomato soup when it is cooked.
I am glad more companies are putting out low sodium products. I just wish they were really low sodium.
