There has been a huge increase in recent years with the numbers and types of soups available to purchase however most don’t measure up nutritionally .Many contain little, if any vegetables, fibre and protein and others are too high in salt or saturated fat. With our lives getting busier and the fact that a lot of people enjoy a cup or bowl of hot, satisfying soup in winter, purchasing a ready-made soup is the easiest answer for many. Homemade is best but if you don’t wish to, or cannot prepare your own soup and / or just want a quick convenient alternative at times, then I have done the hard work for you to find the healthier choices in the supermarket.
My book, the Australian Healthy Cooking Guide available on this website, has plenty of tasty, cost-effective recipes. One of my (and my clients’) favourites is the ‘Pumpkin & Cauliflower Soup’. It has a mild curry flavour and has the extra warmth of cumin, and is only 80 calories per serve! You can download this recipe here.
Soups can be purchased as dry, long-life, frozen, canned and fresh. Serving sizes can vary from 200 to 500 mls /grams( gms), although most are around 250 – 300mls/gms. Some soups can be purchased as single serves whilst others can serve 2, 4 or more. Some can be almost a meal in themselves whereas others are more suitable as an accompaniment to the meal or a light snack. Where possible though, add your own fresh or leftover vegetables, beans or lentils to bulk up and increase the nutrient content of your soup. (This is particularly valuable for soups that aren’t mentioned in the list below and for those that are lower in vegetable content)
Cost varies greatly, from a dollar for a packet to up to nearly $10 for a fresh ‘gourmet’ soup. Not all brands I mention below are available at all supermarkets, but all supermarket chains had some healthier options. For a product to be analysed and therefore considered for the list below, a Nutrition panel had to be present on the package, as well as an Ingredient list. For soups where water needs to be added to reconstitute the soup (powder/ concentrated liquid varieties) the analysis has been done after reconstitution.
Out of around 400 soups on the market, there are over 140 Healthier options overall and many of these have been listed below. Based on their nutritional composition these soups are categorised into GOLD, SILVER or BRONZE groups. If you find a product in the supermarket that is not on this list it may mean that it wasn’t one of the healthier options. It may also just mean that it wasn’t available to view at the supermarkets I visited/ or was out of stock. Use the guidelines on this website and in my book, the Australian Healthy Shopping Guide ( Link to page on this book) to determine its suitability.
Choose soups that are low in fat, particularly saturated fat and lower in salt but with a good amount of fibre and vegetables, and if possible, some protein as well, from legumes or beans, chicken or meat. Select ‘lower ‘or ‘low salt’ options, particularly if you have high blood pressure or are watching your salt intake. Choose ‘Lower’ or ‘low’ kilojoule/ calorie (low –kJ) soups, particularly if you are watching your weight.”
For more details on ‘How to read labels’ – including ‘Understanding Nutrition Claims’ and what they really mean; ‘How to how to read Ingredients lists’ and ‘Nutrition Panels’. More information on these topics and lists of the healthier products in 48 other food categories can be found in my best-selling book, the ‘Australian Healthy Shopping Guide’ which can be purchased from this website.
In addition to the minimal Nutritional aims above, these have more than 7 gms fibre and 4 gms of protein per serve or more than 6 gms protein and 5 gms fibre per 250ml serve. All contain at least 60% vegetables (including legumes/beans) (equivalent to 2 serves of vegetables in a 250mls serve). Many have a significant quantity of other ingredients like wholegrains, chicken or meat.
Woolworths Autumn Collection
In addition to the minimum requirements, these have more than 7 gms fibre or 6 gms of protein per serve or more than 4 gms protein and 5 gms fibre per serve or more than 60% vegetables. All contain at least 45% vegetables (including legumes/beans). Many have a significant quantity of other ingredients like wholegrains, chicken or meat.
These soups meet minimum requirements and have more than 2 gms protein and 3 gms fibre per serve and contain at least 45 % vegetables. Alternatively, if there is no fibre reading on the label (or fibre content is less than 3 gms) they must contain at least 60% vegetables.
Some serve one and others more. Some are powders while others are concentrated liquid/ stock, however in both cases, water need to be added to reconstitute the soup.
