San-J Mild Miso Traditional Japanese Soup Review

San-J Mild Miso Traditional Japanese SoupI've been having a lot of soup for lunch recently - perfect for this cold New York weather - but I knew I had to branch out from my go-to Nile Spice Sweet Corn Chowder. Sure, that soup is my absolute favorite, and I could eat it multiple times a day, but how else am I going to make delicious new discoveries if I keep eating the same thing everyday?! I love Japanese food, so I picked up a container of San-J Mild Miso Traditional Japanese Soup for $2.07 from my grocery store. San-J says their soups are, "are packed full of flavor, low in fat and calories and provide the perfect first course or a satisfying healthy lunch-on-the-go."

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 container
Calories: 45
Total Fat: 1.5 gram, 2%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 1360 mg, 57%
Carbohydrates: 5 grams
Fiber: < 1 gram, 4%
Sugars: 1 gram
Protein: 3 grams

I first looked at the nutrition facts, knowing what a sodium nightmare it was likely to be and I wasn't wrong either. A container provides only 45 calories and 1.5 grams of fat, but 1360 mg sodium (57% of the daily value) shock, less than 1 gram of fiber, and 3 grams of protein. Wow - that's a really high sodium count. Still, I decided to go ahead and try it - I'm careful about my sodium in other respects, so I can afford a bit of a splurge sometimes. The calorie count is super low, so I paired this with a salad and yogurt.

If I could use just one word to describe San-J Mild Miso Traditional Japanese Soup, it would be AWFUL!
