Corn flour: Pack­aged soups have a very high amount of corn flour for a thick con­sis­tency. A ma­jor health haz­ard of corn flour is that it raises the blood sugar con­tent. It fur­ther leads to fat de­po­si­tion in the body and may leave one hun­grier. Salt: Pack­aged soups con­tain ain a very high amount of salt. This is not rec­om­mended for peo­ple ple suf­fer­ing from blood pres­sure or even those who have bor­der­line blood pres­sure as high salt will in­crease their lev­els. Ex­cess of salt in­take is linked with os­teo­poro­sis, asthma, kid­ney dis­eases and nd stom­ach can­cer some­times; it also causes wa­ter re­ten­tion and oedema. dema. Preser­va­tives: The amount of preser­va­tives in pack­aged soups is high. Th­ese can cause health haz­ards. More­over, all the nu­tri­ents in pack­aged soup are in pow­dered form (de­hy­drated) and when th­ese nu­tri­ents come in con­tact with heat, they lose all the es­sen­tial vi­ta­mins. Be­sides, th­ese soups only con­tain empty calo­ries, which get stored in your body and don’t get ab­sorbed im­me­di­ately as they are de­void of any nu­tri­tion. Pack­aged soups do not carry half as many health ben­e­fits of nat­u­ral soup sim­ply be­cause nu­tri­tion can­not be stored for such a long time. Be­sides, all the preser­va­tives used to im­prove the shelf life de­stroy the an­tiox­i­dant qual­i­ties of the vegetables.

Here are the three crit­i­cal com­po­nents of a pre-pack­aged soup that may be worth con­sid­er­ing.
