Hot tips on soup selection

WHILE a hot bowl of soup can provide comfort on a wintry day, the Heart Foundation has warned pre-packaged soups can be a major source of "hidden salt".

Excessive dietary salt is a major cause of high blood pressure and heart disease.

Heart Foundation chief executive officer Graeme Lynch today said canned and cup soup mixes contained some of the highest levels of "hidden salt" found in processed foods.

Mr Lynch encouraged Tasmanians to choose a soup brand that carried the Heart Foundation tick, which was only awarded to products with a lower salt content.

"In Tasmania, three out of 10 people have high blood pressure compared with two out of 10 in Australia. High blood pressure is the major risk factor for heart attack and stroke," he said.

Heart Foundation's Go Red For Women ambassador Jane Stephens, whose sister is Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, said many people were not aware of how much hidden salt they were eating.

"Taking small steps to reduce your salt intake -- such as always checking food labels or even making your own soup from scratch rather than buying ready-made -- is something positive you can do to reduce your risk of heart disease," Mrs Stephens said.
