Progresso Reduced Sodium Italian Style Wedding Soup Review

Progresso Reduced Sodium Italian Style Wedding SoupCutting salt out of my diet has been far harder for me than cutting out sweets and other temptations. Even foods that are for the most part healthy, like salads and stir-fries, taste so much better to me with soy sauce and dressings. Switching to reduced-sodium options hasn't helped me that much; I tend to find myself just adding salt anyway. Still, every now and then, I find one that really stands out.

Progresso's 40% Reduced-Sodium Italian Style Wedding Soup is by far one of the best reduced-sodium soups that I've tried. The broth has a nice chicken flavor, the little salad macaroni noodles are still al dente, and the meatballs are tender and flavorful. There's a good amount of both pasta and meatballs, though a disappointing amount of vegetables. There's a few carrots and spinach fragments floating around, but not nearly as much as would be considered a decent vegetable serving. Eggs, a staple in this soup traditionally, are nowhere to be seen in this canned version, though canning eggs would probably be nigh impossible. And while this soup is tasty, it's definitely not what I'd call hearty - this is one to eat with a salad or sandwich, not by itself with some crackers.

Each 1 cup serving of Progresso Reduced-Sodium Italian Style Wedding Soup provides 120 calories, 1 gram of total fat, 20% of the daily value for sodium, 6 grams of protein, 2 grams of fiber and 2 grams of sugars. At only $1.20, one can is a great, low calorie, cheap side for a lunch. Of course, the amount of sodium this actually contains - despite the reduced sodium tag - will still be sending those with high blood pressure to look elsewhere.

Looking back through the archives, we've consistently given Progresso brand low sodium soups a good rating for taste, so you might also want to check out Progresso 50% Less Sodium Chicken Noodle Soup, Progresso Chicken & Wild Rice 45% Less Sodium Soup and Progresso Light Reduced Sodium Vegetable Soup.
