Warning over salt levels in soup

Many soups sold in high street cafes and supermarkets may not offer the healthy option customers are seeking, a pressure group has warned.
Consensus Action on Salt and Health (Cash) said 25% of 575 types of soup it analysed failed to meet Food Standards Agency targets on salt content.
However, it said there had been a 17% drop in the amount of salt in ready-to-eat ranges since its 2007 survey.
Experts say high salt intake raises blood pressure and the risk of strokes.
