Is Canned Cream of Soup Harmful

The canned stuff is typically loaded with fat and excess sodium. Check your labels. I have often seen, modified food starch, which is a processed ingredient that helps thicken up the soup. They also often include vegetable oil, sugar, and flavoring. Flavoring basically means something has been added to alter the natural flavor.

Never once did I think I could make my own cream of chicken soup instead of buying canned. It was so easy! I added mushrooms to make it cream of mushroom to use in my green bean casserole for Thanksgiving and I’m very happy that there’ll be leftover soup!
