Low sodium canned soups can make mealtime quick and easy if you know which soups to look for. Here are several low sodium canned soup options to add to your pantry.
Canned soup is a convenient meal. You can enjoy vegetables and protein all in one bowl, and there’s not much easier than popping open a can for a complete meal. If you’re living a low sodium lifestyle, choose your canned soups carefully because most are extremely high in sodium. Campbell’s Chicken Noodle Soup, an old favorite, contains 890 mg of sodium in one-half cup.
Even soups labeled ‘reduced’ or ‘lower’ sodium can be off-limits for those on a low sodium diet. Progresso’s Reduced Sodium Creamy Tomato Basil Soup contains 490 mg of sodium in a 1-cup serving, 1040 mg per can. If your daily sodium limit is 1500 mg, one cup of soup would be one-third of your daily allowance.
If your local grocery store is not carrying low sodium soups or other low sodium foods, speak to the manager and request the specific products you need. They may order these items and add them to their shelves if enough requests are made.
