Pacific Natural Foods Creamy Roasted Carrot Soup Review

Pacific Natural Foods Creamy Roasted Carrot SoupI have had many of soup varieties that Pacific Foods offers, from their Creamy Tomato Light Sodium Soup to their Creamy Butternut Squash Soup. Both times, I was left thinking, "I wonder if all of their other soups are this good?" Well, I am back again; but this time Pacific Natural Foods Creamy Roasted Carrot Soup is gracing my bowl.

Have you ever had Spaghetti-O's ? That is what I was reminded of when I took my first bite, except the carrot flavor of this soup is extremely prevalent in a deliciously bold way. The wholesome carrot puree is blended with filtered water, organic soymilk, corn starch, cane sweetener, natural roasted carrot flavor, sea salt, yeast extract and a touch of spices. Because of the short and nutritious ingredient list, every flavor shines through: the light sweetness, rich carrot flavor, creamy soymilk and variety of flavor enhancing spices.

The nutrition facts is very impressive, except for the 33% of the RDA for sodium (780 mg) - why do packaged soups have so much sodium?! However, don't let that hold you back as this soup can be a healthy addition to any well balanced diet. Each 1 cup serving has 100 calories, 1 gram of fat (2% of the RDA), no saturated fat or cholesterol, 3 grams of protein and 18 grams of carbohydrates which includes 2 grams of fiber (9% of the RDA) and 5 grams of sugar. The ingredients list is full of things you would use if you were making this yourself.

I paid $2.35 for a 16 ounce re-closable carton at a local health food store and I will be back for more. To tell you the truth, this is my favorite Pacific Natural Foods Soup yet! I need to get the Pacific Natural Foods product developers because I know they could concoct a low sodium version without sacrificing taste, as they did with their Creamy Tomato flavor.
