It Says So On The Label

Sodium:
  • Campbell's Tomato Soup labeled "25% Less Sodium" has 480 mg sodium per serving.
  • Campbell's regular Tomato Soup has 480 mg sodium per serving.
"So they both have the same amount of sodium even though this one has 25% less." - Shopper

Fat:
  • Campbell's Healthy Request Tomato Soup labeled "Low in fat" has 1.5 grams fat per serving.
  • Campbell's regular Tomato Soup not labeled "Low in fat" has 0 grams fat per serving.

Very interesting. I'm gonna check my cans here in Canada and let you know if it's the same (I've found slight differences in products between the borders).
