Notes:
1. Sodium and fat content are given in milligrams.
2. Numbers in the left hand column correspond to the presentation order on the Campbell's website.
3. Campbell's 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 CAMPBELL SOUPS contain excessive sodium. So do ALL PROGRESSO SOUPS. If you have high blood pressure, forget about ALL prepared soups, PERIOD.

Select Harvest** (stealth removal 2012)
www.campbellsoup.com/Products/Select-Harvest

* Many of these "Healthy Request" were previously "Select Harvest".

** Why would Campbell's delete a whole family of soups, WITHOUT COMMENT? What kind of PR is this? "Select Harvest" must have been a real loser of massive proportions - to disappear, without explanation, never to be mentioned again. Weird.

A "Select Harvest" webpage first appeared on the Campbell's website in August 2011, and disappeared in July 2012, according to web archives. It is entirely possible to go insane, while contemplating Campbell's Soups. Campbell's does not offer mutual exclusion - many categories overlap. In the multiple-classification system, not all varieties are mentioned everywhere you would think.

DISCLAIMER:
This site is not associated with Campbell's Soup Co.
This is a summary of public information found on the Internet.
Why did I make this page? Because Campbell's didn't.
Why should I be forced to check each soup one-at-a-time?

Source of data: Campbell's Soup website, Jan. 20, 2013.

Daily Recommended Sodium max: 1,500 mg
Far too much for average person: 2,500 mg
If you should eat a full can of Campbell's Soup, you may consume greater than 1,800 mg. of sodium, which is already too much for an entire day, for a Blood Pressure challenged person.
