Looking for a creamy soup you can enjoy, and not feel guilty about having? This one is it. It’s filled with all the ingredients that help fight chronic disease in one delicious bowl. The soluble fiber in corn keeps you fuller and more satisfied, meaning you’ll eat less at your next meal. The potassium helps in managing blood pressure by reducing the impact of sodium in the diet.
