How much sodium is in that soup?

How much sodium is in that soup?

There’s nothing nicer than a warming soup on cold days. There are plenty of options on offer at the supermarket, but the sodium (salt) content varies greatly among them, and it can be easy to get too much.

We compare the sodium content in a serve of soup to the recommended daily upper amount of 2300mg.

Note: Serve sizes vary from 10–100g per packet of dried soup mix, to 200–300g per 1/2 can or pouch, to 350–430g per individual serve.
