Some people will make these compromises with salty canned soup, while others won’t. I decide this kind of thing on a case by case basis. Sometimes I do compromise, while other times I don’t. As for canned soup, I’ll accept some salt but not massive amounts of it — while there are those people who won’t compromise on salt at all and make their own soups. I use Amy’s organic soups because I like the organic ingredients but her soups do have a significant amount of salt. Then again I don’t have the ordeal (for me an ordeal) of having to make my own soups.
Mind you, I am in the camp that says one should totally avoid all additional salt, as we get enough of the stuff embedded in the foods we eat, so extra salt is unnecessary and clearly unhealthy. But if I tolerate the extra salt in Amy’s soups, I don’t want to have to make my own soups, and I also take advantage of how great her soups taste. Mine would be pretty miserable at best taste-wise.
Then again, if you are handy with food and enjoy making your own soup, you are in the cat bird’s seat, and can scoff at all these commercial canned soups with their sky-high salt content.
