Salt in Progresso Soups

Which Progresso soups contain the highest levels of sodium? The following list summarizes the sodium levels in Progresso soups. Total fat is also listed.

Those with high blood pressure need to limit their intake of sodium. Salt causes you to retain water, which increases blood volume, which results in higher blood pressure.

Soup is typically LOADED with salt. For those who must have their soup, here are some choices from Progresso.

Notes:
1. Sodium and fat content are given in milligrams.
2. Numbers in the left hand column correspond to the presentation order on the Progresso website.
3. Progresso website does not give container weight, nor does it specify servings per container.
4. Some soups are included in multiple families, which becomes very confusing.
5. In the author's opinion, ALL PROGRESSO SOUPS contain excessive sodium. So do ALL CAMPBELL'S SOUPS. If you have high blood pressure, forget about ALL prepared soups, PERIOD.

Total Progresso Soups summarized

Notes: ALMOST ALL Progresso soups contain MSG, disguised as "yeast extract" or "hydrolyzed protein" in the ingredients list. When a soup has no MSG, they make a big deal out of it, by stating "NO MSG" (some cans only). I found one such soup.
