Instant energy, protein, fat, sugar and salt too?
Comfort food, starter, or a light-meal accompaniment, instant tomato soup is as handy as it gets. Being an easy and relatively affordable option for people, too short on time to cook and/or eat something healthier, it has gained in popularity. Moreover, based on claims by brands, instant tomato soups are supposed to give us instant energy, protein and fibre, among other things. As consumers, it is up to us to check the genuineness of brands’ claims and understand the information given on the food labels of the packets that we pick up.
Often high in salt, sugar and fat, instant tomato soups should be eaten sparingly and when we do that, our choice of brand should be based on a proper understanding of the information given on the packet. Given that nutrition labels are not always simple enough to interpret, or standardized for enabling comparison among brands in a specific category, we have pulled out the essential details and compared these on Traffic Light Labeling System to know the safe ranges on the basis of which we as consumers can make informed choices.
