I’m gonna help you decide which can soup or shelf-stable stoop that I’m gonna help you decide which can soup or shelf-stable stoop why don’t I teach a stoop I’m gonna help you decide which can soup or shelf Sables that is a really hard on che shelf-stable soup I’m gonna help you figure out which can’t soups and shelf-stable soups you should really be choosing here’s the thing if you’re looking to stock up on canned soup or any kind of pantry staple I understand in an emergency situation or just a stock up situation you’re just looking to get your hands on on calories I totally get that and I respect that the thing you do have to consider though is there are a lot of healthy options but more importantly than the healthy options I want to teach you what to look for on a label just so that you can avoid the things that are totally catastrophic to your health if you’re going to be eating canned soup for a little while wouldn’t you want to be choosing the right healthy options okay so we’ll talk about specific brands that I really think you should avoid then I’ve got four brands that I think you should focus on that you can get either online or at the grocery store and then I’m gonna give you a little list of ingredients that I absolutely think are just 100% no-fly-zone so without further ado let’s dive in hey I do ask please hit that red subscribe button that’s going to subscribe you to this channel but it’s gonna also allow you to see our daily video so hit that little Bell icon to turn on notifications as well okay first I’m gonna pick on the big ones let’s talk about Progresso and Campbell’s for just a second no I’m not here just a bash of brand that’s not my goal at all okay they’re brands that are doing some decent things they’re feeding the world in some ways right well let’s talk about the ingredients the first thing with progressive lots of wheat and lots of flour in almost all their soups even if they really shouldn’t have it you kind of expect it in maybe a clam chowder where you’re making a roux or something but when chicken noodle soup has flour in the broth you have to ask yourself what are they going for basically they’re just trying to thicken it up trying to add volume to the soup but when you have to wonder what’s that doing inside your body okay flour and wheat does trigger an inflammatory response within your body so if you’re going to be eating it consistently it’s something you need to think about a little bit you don’t want to be constantly triggering this inflammatory response we’re just gonna trigger stress upon your body next up is gonna be modified food starch modified food starch and modified corn starch two different things you’re going to see in a lot of different canned soups however yeah they’re usually further down the label it’s still something to consider it means what are you trying to hide what are you trying to fluff up with this soup so just something to consider then we move into soy protein a lot of times in Cheaper soups and you see in a lot of the progressive soups they add soy protein isolate they do this to increase the protein value of their soup but they also do it again to thicken it well what are we worried about here estrogenic properties if you were to be consistently eating this you would have such a surge of estrogen in your body I would argue you could end up with some issues okay you don’t want to be having this massive search of phytoestrogens or xenoestrogens especially if you’re consistently eating that so if your soup says that it has soy protein isolate or soy protein added to the ingredients anywhere really should kick it to the curb next up we’ll see a lot of multi dextran now the reason I like to avoid multi dextran is it does cause a big insulin spike so once again when we’re looking at the big picture consistently consuming these soups and we get a big spike in multi dextran well yeah that could trigger insulin resistance could trigger some serious insulin issues that we really don’t want to be dealing with and lastly natural flavors if you see natural flavors in any of your soups you really should go the other direction unless you absolutely know where those natural flavors are coming from not all natural flavors are bad but here’s the thing natural flavors will have up to 100 different chemical additives in them yes 100 different chemical additives because they’re called incidental additives as long as the root flavor of natural flavor comes from a natural source which is a loose term anyway they can call it a natural flavor so just be careful now I want to pick really quick on Campbell’s for a second Campbell’s yes they’re big brand name a lot of people stock up on candles and I understand that and I understand appreciate them from a business perspective however what’s in that stuff they’re using stock versus broth okay already a lower quality you know version of broth to begin with they’re adding the flowers they’re adding the starches that we already talked about but then they’re adding msg and they’re at a yeast extract essentially synonymous msg and used to extract are really the same thing what they’re doing is they’re they’re called excitotoxin they light your brain up to make something taste better so you eat more of it well what does this do well think about it you’re causing a big surge of excitement in essence you’re borrowing from tomorrow for today causing a big surge of cellular waste because all of a sudden you have this big surge of excitement it’s like loading your body with just a zap of energy so you have a bunch of well cellular waste that occurs your body can’t keep up with that that is difficult on your body but additionally glutamate like monosodium glutamate is usually made in the brain right so that means it has the ability to cross through the blood-brain barrier so MSG is a little bit uncharted territory we don’t know what it’s gonna do inside our bodies thoroughly we know it can get in our brain and we know it can trigger reactive oxygen species those are two things that I don’t want to risk mixing to be completely honest so run the other direction from that stuff and then of course you’re going to find a bunch of vegetable oils you’re gonna find vegetable oil canola oil soybean oil those kinds of things are not the right kind of oils you want in your body those polyunsaturated fats that are very unstable and they cause a lot of chaos in your body plus a very poor omega-6 to omega-3 ratio now let’s talk about some soups that I do think are worth mentioning and we’re probably stocking up on whether it’s at the store or online all right Ami’s makes the cut Ami’s has some pretty good soups and I’ll put a rating scale here I would probably give Amy’s a 7 out of 10 they’re largely using organic ingredients okay that’s awesome then a lot of times they have no natural flavors or anything like that they’re really pretty clean the reason they’re a little bit lower on my list is they don’t really have any low carb options okay now if you’re sedentary or if you’re stuck in the house and you’re eating foods from your pantry for whatever reason you’re not active a whole lot I would highly recommend you reduce the carbohydrate intake and because Amy is a vegetarian brand a lot of their soups are based around chick peas or lentils or you know things like that or rice which is fine but not if you’re not going to be active I just and if you’re following a low-carb diet it doesn’t really do the trick either right additionally I get a little confused because some soups they use extra virgin olive oil and some soups they use high oleic sunflower and high oleic safflower oil which has a place because it’s more shelf stable and still a monounsaturated fat but why not just use evo all the time anyhow still a good soup still much better than stocking up on some of the really low-quality soups the next one is a smaller brand that you probably haven’t heard of before called true primal I give true primal probably a 7 to 8 out of 10 okay they’re not using as many organic ingredients which really isn’t a huge deal to me but once again they don’t have a lot of low carb options but they also just don’t have a lot of variety they’re flavors to begin with and to be completely honest the flavor is a little that okay I mean if you’re looking at a soup yeah maybe you’re looking at just four calories and the flavor doesn’t matter but to me flavor does play a big role and additionally it’s a little bit questionable some of the oils that they’re using as well so we just have to be careful there the next one is one that I’ve talked about a lot and that’s kettle and fire which is truly a bone broth company that has branched into making soups the reason I like kettle and fire and why they make the list is because their soups are actually like meals okay they are calorically dense they are nutrient rich and they’re using wholesome ingredients so whole food ingredients and instead of using a lot of oils and things like that in their soups they’re using heavy cream okay so you’re getting like a full spectrum fat it has a little bit more of a nutrient profile than using like soybean oil or something like that bone broth additionally is a huge huge huge piece it bone broth is not chicken stock or chicken broth bone broth is broth that’s made from the bones including the marrow and everything like that so you’re getting the minerals you’re getting a magnesium they’re getting the potassium the iron you’re getting what you need and then they’re smart enough to add apple cider vinegar to their broth to make sure that you get the mineralization of the minerals actually absorb so with their soups my favorite is the butter curry okay that’s using cream it’s using ginger it’s using curry spice and of course it’s using the bone broth all of their soups which are really meals are also low-carb and keto friendly all of them so whether you go for a broth or you go for a soup they’re definitely going to work within a low-carb spectrum so I give them an 8 or 9 out of 10 the only reason I don’t give them a full 10 is because they don’t offer a bunch of different organic varieties which definitely has to count for something in some cases they are a sponsor of this channel and they are super awesome so in that case I did go ahead and put a link down below because they’re also one of the few soup brands that will actually ship from online so you don’t just have to get them in the store so if you want to try the soup variations I’m talking about like the butter curry and the broccoli cheddar and things like that I went ahead I put a link down below and that way you can also claim a special discount for Thomas tell our fans so you just use the code down below check them out after you watch the rest of this video huge huge savings and also they’re just an awesome company the next one that I want to talk about is an interesting company called tabachnikov acneic only makes it maybe I’d give them like a 6 and a half out of 10 reason is their oil selections aren’t too great again we’re talking Canole we’re talking sunflower oil we’re not talking the best quality oils but the reason they actually make the list is because as a brand they have quite a few different varieties and some of their soups use a lot of oils which I don’t recommend in this case but some of their soups are actually pretty clean like they’re split pea soup is very very clean and very limited ingredients so I do appreciate that hard part is it’s not one that you’re gonna find at a lot of grocery stores so it’s a little bit tougher to get your hands on they also do tend to add cane sugar to their soups and they also do tend to use natural flavors but again you really have to look closely at the label so because of that wide discrepancy in that wide array they make the list but not as much okay now let’s touch on what you absolutely need to avoid okay we talked about flour we talked about cornstarch we talked about malted dextran we talked about those things we talked about kind of worrying about natural flavors but now let’s go into some specific preservatives bins oh it’s okay if you see sodium benzoate potassium benzoate be very careful and especially especially if you were being conscious of your immune system right now and loading up on vitamin C vitamin C reacts with benzo ‘its to create benzene within the body which has been shown in different studies and animal models to be very toxic so we have to be very very careful there’s even some issues in the past with some soda companies and benzo ‘its and really causing issues with people where they had to actually pull them off the shelves so if you see sodium benzoate potassium benzoate or anything bin to it throw it away just get rid of it if you see nitrates in your soup yes nitrates can come from celery naturally-occurring nitrates are something different but when you have a large amount of nitrites or nitrates what can happen is the nitrates will convert in your stomach and then combine with the proteins to create specific things called nitrous a means these nitrous amines cause a problem so anyhow just avoid those if you can in your soups BHA and BHT which is thankfully you don’t see a whole lot of anymore but if you do see those on a label those are derived from petroleum and they’re designed to again increase the shelf life and also preserve the flavor but really should be avoiding those high fructose corn syrup dead giveaway that’s gonna be a bad quality product you just want to avoid that fructose converts to fat very easily now with the food dyes okay yellow number five blue number one and two red number three and some of the nach Green’s okay you want to be careful of things that say natural green coloring anyhow a lot of these are also derived from petroleum and are also shown in a lot of different situations to be carcinogens or just very hard for your body to process so now you have the breakdown of how to shop the soup section make sure you do checkout kettle and fire and at least check out the other brands at your grocery store if you can get a chance to get there as always I’ll see you soon
