Tesco Heart Attack Soup ('healthy' living range!)

Dear Tesco, I am an avid buyer of your healthy living range but have a complaint on your soup. I bought a tin of your soup last week and checked the salt content it has 3 grams of salt per tin which is half of your (RDA) for one day!

Yes well done you have worded it to sound better by putting 1.5 grams per half serving but who opens a tin of soup and only has half a tin?

When I am ill I usually have soup and up to 4 tins so if I used your soup I would be having twice the (RDA) for salt which is really bad worse than having less fat which you range promotes.

For Example your Tesco own chicken and mushroom frozen pies have a gram of salt in each I could have 3 pies yes 3 and still only have the same salt as one of your tins of soup.

More people die from strokes and heart attacks by having to much salt than to much fat in there diet, also for you to be promoting this as healthy eating is worse because people are less likely to check the salt content because they think because your product says “healthy eating” its ok not to check.

By having only 3 tins of this soup a week people would to have a lot less protein and carb foods just to not go over on there salt count it doesn’t make sense in which case your soup is classed as “unhealthy eating” because people are not getting there full nutrients. Even if they replace carbs with vegetables because you need carbs and protein to maintain a healthy body

Please could you email me back an answer? Richard.

I am personally of the opinion that pretty much any "healthy" range is a load of rubbish and this would seem to prove that. Sure you may be getting reduced amounts of one thing but they're chucking in a load more of something else and charging you more for the privilege.

For a start, the responsibility lies with the customer to regulate their salt intake, especially if they are eating the same thing all the time.

I also think it is untrue to say that those who buy Healthy Living products would be less likely to check the salt content - on the contrary, the people who buy these ranges would check the nutritional information thoroughly beforehand.

While there are plenty of ways to diet, and diffeгent food eаting ρrograms, I'd like to talk about a great way to easily incorporate exercise into your daily life. There are plenty of exercises that don't requirе you to have any speсial equipmеnt
or jοin a gym. It is not enοugh just to have a gοod diet when you want to lοѕе
weight effectively.
