Progresso Chicken & Wild Rice 45% Less Sodium Soup Review

Progresso Chicken & Wild Rice Lower Sodium SoupSoup is often an excellent diet food, as you can buy ones that are low in calories, full of vegetables, and fill you up inside. The salt these soups contain are often their only downfall, but Progresso has remedied this by using sea salt, resulting in a reduced-sodium soup.

I'm happy to say that I didn't find myself reaching for the salt shaker as I ate the 45% Less Sodium Progresso Chicken & Wild Rice Soup. It actually tastes more like a natural broth as compared to something made from a bouillon, and while it could use more spices, it was decent for a canned soup. There was a satisfying amount of tender breast chunks, and plenty of rice and carrots. I was also pleasantly surprised to see that that there was also tomatoes which was a welcome and colorful addition. However, I would have liked see even more vegetables - more celery and tomatoes, and the addition of peas, corn, green beans, or even broccoli. The ho-hum carrots and celery were just a bit ... boring.

One can of Progresso Chicken & Wild Rice 45% Less Sodium Soup (which is two servings, but I've never known someone to split a can of soup) contains 180 calories, 3 grams of total fat but no saturated fat, 940 milligrams of sodium which is still 40% of the RDA for sodium, and 12 grams of protein.

One can costs about $1.20, but this is clearly, this is far from a low sodium product. Progresso seems to be having a bit of an identity crisis because they have 45% reduced sodium, 50% less sodium, light, 99% fat free soups. Nevertheless, we love Progresso is definitely one of my favorite canned soups (we also reviewed - and loved - Progresso 50% Less Sodium Chicken Noodle Soup).
