So all you soup consumers out there, who in a pinch can only find progresso and campbells soup in CVS I urge you to write a comment to their site regarding the use of MSG in their products. Even Progresso in the low sodium version of their soup had MSG in it (Monosodium Glutamate).
While looking into the whole MSG thing I discovered a bunch of sites listed below who are not into MSG. My primary reason for writing this piece was initially b.c. I think MSG also has extra sodium in it. Why would it be in low sodium soup, why should it be in any soup geared towards children? Again I guess that is why I am making my own pot of soup for the kids today, but I don't always have this luxury. I do know that if Campbells and Progresso don't change their ingredients to support a healthier attitude then I believe in the long run their sales will go down. So why not write and tell them this. Don't buy the product if they refuse to be healthy. Here are their contact sites:
Oh and why not tell your local CVS or grocery store to buy healthier soups such as
health valley or any others of your choosing. Feel free to comment regarding soups of your choice.
