I speak as an MD. The US government recommendations for daily sodium consumption are excessive. They are higher than what is healthy; people should be consuming less sodium than the government recommends. If you examine the Whole Food soup label, you will find that they contain significant percentages of the US recommended daily amount. I find this disturbing. Why does Whole Foods add any salt at all to their soups? Shouldn't the consumer be able to decide how s/he would like her soup salted? Whole Foods should not be adding any salt at all to its soups. Leave the choice to the customer.

After discussing how delicious Whole Foods prepared foods salmon corn chowder tastes, I was asked what the sodium content of this soup might be. I have searched your site and I am having no success finding the answer. I purchased this soup at the Whole Foods in Pittsburgh, PA. It's one of my favorite of the prepared foods you make and I would like to let my friend know the sodium content. Could you please find this information for me? Thanks.

I speak as a Whole Foods customer, healthy human being, and consumer of delicious food. I thoroughly enjoy Whole Foods' soups, and don't want sodium levels lowered.

How large is the large container of soup? One cup? Two?

@TAMARA - Are you referring to the containers of soup in the stores? Typically there should be signage at the soup bars but most stores offer a 32oz./1 quart size of large soup. Double check with your local store to make sure!

There should be a section for salt free items. Soup is terrible for salt content. I can not buy soup because of the salt content.

I bought 2 refrigerated soups. Neither have expiration dates. How long should they keep?

@LK - So sorry about that. Did it have a sell by date on the sticker? If not, I would suggest calling the store directly so they can look in to this further for you.

@AMANDA - Is this something made in house at your local store? If so, check with the store directly. If they have this info, they will be happy to share.
