"Healthy" Canned Soup Not "Low-Sodium"

An online article in a major financial newspaper describes a reformulated, "healthy" canned soup product as “low-sodium.” 


This soup contains 470 mg sodium per serving, so it does not qualify for the “low-sodium” claim, which has a 140 mg limit. Just because a food qualifies for the “healthy” nutrient content claim (see FDA criteria here), does not mean it is low in sodium. The maximum sodium allowed for “healthy” is much higher -- 480 mg.
