The taste of Campbell’s Tomato Soup is unmistakably M’m! M’m! Good!. At its heart are sun-ripened tomatoes, selected for their delicious flavor and texture. It has created happy childhood memories for generations of Americans.

Campbell’s Condensed Tomato Soup contains no artificial colors, no artificial flavors, no and no added MSG.

Key Ingredients

Tomato puree

Our tomatoes are mainly grown in California by family farmers, many who’ve grown for us for generations. The ripe tomatoes are harvested and transported directly to our plants to be washed, peeled and pureed.

High fructose corn syrup

High fructose corn syrup or HFCS is a sweetener used to balance the acidity of the tomatoes and help give the soup its smooth texture. HFCS is made from corn and is a mix of fructose and glucose. It contains the same calories as table sugar.

Water

We use water in many of our products to achieve the right consistency.

INGREDIENTS FOR FLAVOR


Salt

We use a mix of different types of salts to flavor our tomato soup in order to limit the amount of sodium in the recipe. These include salt, lower sodium natural sea salt, potassium salt, and monopotassium phosphate.

Citric acid

Citric acid is prepared by fermentation of a sugar source such as sugar beet or cane molasses. It is added to provide tartness and to also balance sweetness.

INGREDIENTS FOR TEXTURE


Wheat flour

Used to thicken the soup. We use flour milled from wheat grown in the U.S. and Canada.

OTHER INGREDIENTS


Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C)

Ascorbic acid is another name for vitamin C. It occurs naturally in many foods and we add it to replace the naturally-occurring vitamin C in tomatoes that may be lost during preparing and cooking the soup.

GENETICALLY MODIFIED INGREDIENTS


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

The ingredients in Condensed Tomato Soup that may be derived from these crops are:

Corn

- high fructose corn syrup

Sugar beet

- citric acid

Non-GMO Ingredients

All other ingredients including tomatoes 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 and package our Condensed Tomato Soup in Ohio, Texas, North Carolina and Toronto, Canada.

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 up to 35% 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 use is made of acrylic or polyester materials and does not contain BPA.

OUR PACKAGING AND BPA

We understand that some people would prefer to avoid bisphenol A (BPA), although FDA has determined that it’s safe to use in food packaging. Historically, BPA has been used in food packaging to line metal cans and to preserve the food’s taste and its nutritional value.

PET bottles, pouches, and cartons such as those used for V8® beverages, Swanson® broths and Campbell’s sauces are (and have always been) non-BPA packaging.

Campbell has transitioned to the non-BPA lining in all of our aluminum and steel cans in the United States and Canada.

The containers of a few other products have metal components that have limited food contact points but are key to ensuring that the lids remain tight. BPA is used as a coating on that metal but in small amounts and we continue to work on packaging alternatives.
