Dr. McDougalls Organic Tortilla Style All Natural Soup

Dr. McDougall's Organic All Natural Soups hit the supermarket shelves recently, and I received a few samples for review. The first one I picked to try was the Organic Tortilla Style Soup, described as, made from a prized recipe that blends organic masa harina, corn, black beans and vegetables in a delicious Southwestern broth. The soup is also vegan and gluten free.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 cup (245 grams)
Calories: 100
Total Fat: 0.5 grams, 1%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 530 mg, 22%
Carbohydrates: 20 grams
Fiber: 4 grams, 16%
Sugars: 2 grams
Protein: 5 grams

The directions on the carton read, just heat and serve, so I poured out about half the contents in a bowl, and microwaved it for a few minutes. The result was a delicious hearty soup. It was a little on the sweet side - I was actually expecting a more salty flavor - but it wasn't an unpleasant surprise. There was a lot of beans and corns in the slightly thick broth of this robust soup. After a few spoonfuls, I also started getting some of that spicy heat on the back of my tongue from the chilies - nothing too strong though. Love this soup - although I have to admit to adding just a pinch of salt to my 2nd portion - and then the soup really was perfect in my eyes.

Each 1 cup serving of Dr. McDougall's Organic Tortilla Style All Natural Soup provides 100 calories, 0.5 grams of total fat, 530 mg sodium (22% of the daily value), 4 grams of fiber (16% of the DV), 2 grams of sugars and 5 grams of protein. The sodium content is actually that of most "low sodium" soups. The ingredients are, filtered water, organic vegetables (tomatoes, corn, onions, chilies, garlic, cilantro), organic black beans, organic masa harina, natural flavors, organic starches (corn, potato), sea salt, organic spices, organic evaporated cane juice, organic sesame, organic tamari soy sauce, citric acid.

As I mentioned before, I received samples for review, so I'm not sure of the exact retail price (on their website, other comparable options cost just under $3.00 per 18 ounce (510 gram) carton - about 2 servings). As much as I like Muir Glen Organic Chicken Tortilla Soup (Review), I think I give Dr. McDougall's Organic Tortilla Style All Natural Soup the edge because it's lower in calories and has way less sodium - 22% compared to 33% of the daily value.
