Delicious noodles to slurp, warming broth and lots of smiles – that’s what goes into a bowl of Campbell’s Chicken Noodle Soup.

This soup contains no artificial colors, no artificial flavors and no added preservatives.

Key Ingredients

Chicken Stock

The stock is made from cooking chicken and seasoning in water and then concentrating it through evaporation. We also use a small amount of dehydrated or dried chicken stock for added flavor.

Noodles

We use fresh egg noodles in our 10 3/4 oz cans. These are made with flour, egg and water, and rolled just moments before they are added to the cans and cooked. Dried noodles are used in our larger-sized cans. Noodles use flour milled from wheat grown in the U.S. and Canada and enriched with essential vitamins.

Chicken meat

We use thigh chicken meat which is removed by hand and comes from USDA-approved farms in America. We also use small amounts of chicken fat and dehydrated chicken to add extra flavor. The chicken fat contains a preservative which stops the ingredient from spoiling quickly.

INGREDIENTS FOR FLAVOR


Dehydrated onions

We used dehydrated or dried onions as a base flavor.

Monosodium glutamate (MSG)

MSG is used to enhance the soup's savory flavor and is made by fermenting cane or beet molasses.

Salt

Table salt adds seasoning and flavor.

Sugar

Balances the savory flavors.

Yeast extract

A natural flavor derived from yeast which adds a savory taste.

INGREDIENTS FOR TEXTURE & COLOR


Beta carotene

A pigment that gives carrots, sweet potatoes and pumpkins their orange color. When added to food, it adds a yellow or orange color. Your body converts beta carotene to Vitamin A.

Modified starch

Used as a thickener to give a smooth texture and consistency, just as you might use corn starch at home. The starches we use are made from corn, maize, potato, wheat or tapioca.

Sodium phosphate

A type of salt we use to maintain the texture and flavor of the chicken.

Soy protein isolate

Made from soybeans and almost entirely protein. Is used to help keep the chicken tender during cooking.

GENETICALLY MODIFIED INGREDIENTS


In America, approximately 90% of all canola, corn, soybean and sugar beet crops are grown from genetically modified seeds. Farmers have been using these seeds for more than 20 years as they are safe, reduce costs and improve yields.

The ingredients in Chicken Noodle Soup that may be derived from these crops are:

Soybean

- soy protein isolate

Corn

- modified starch

Sugar beet

- monosodium glutamate (MSG), sugar

Non-GMO Ingredients

All other ingredients including wheat are not genetically modified.

WHO MAKES & GROWS THE SOUP

 

We buy many of our ingredients from farmers in America and Canada.

More than 75% of the produce we buy as a company is from the U.S. – that’s around 2.5 billion pounds a year.

We make our Chicken Noodle soup in Ohio, Texas, North Carolina and Toronto, Canada.

We employ around 4,000 people across these locations.

PACKAGING

Steel cans are among the safest, most convenient, affordable and environmentally sustainable forms of packaging. The steel cans we use are recyclable and contain 30% recycled steel.

Our cans are coated on the inside with a thin layer of plastic to separate the food from the metal. This keeps the food safe and preserves its nutritional value. The lining we currently use contains a substance called bisphenol A or BPA.

In March 2016, we announced plans to transition to non-BPA can linings and coatings and started shipping cans with linings made from acrylic or polyester. We expect this transition to be complete by mid-2017.

We are making this move in response to consumer feedback. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and many other regulatory agencies around the world have said that BPA is safe to use in packaging.
