MINNEAPOLIS Progresso announced its new line of high fiber ready-to-serve soups available this fall in four varieties.
Fiber has been regarded as the number one ingredient to better overall health ? yet nine-in-10 Americans are not getting the recommended daily value, the company said.
"It's important for consumers to eat high-fiber foods, as they've been shown to support digestive health," said Michelle Tucker, senior nutrition scientist, General Mills Bell Institute of Health and Nutrition. "With 28% of the recommended daily value of fiber per serving, Progresso High Fiber soups will make it convenient for consumers to get more fiber in their diets while enjoying a wholesome, satisfying meal."
Progresso’s new high fiber line is part of the Progresso’s brand ongoing focus on healthy innovations and contains no added MSG, no artificial flavors and seven grams of fiber per serving.
