CAMDEN, N.J.  (Food-News.net)  Campbell Soup Company (NYSE:CPB) is bringing on the heat to low-sodium foods with the introduction of V8 Spicy Hot Low Sodium 100% vegetable juice. With 140 milligrams of sodium in each 8-ounce glass, this deliciously-zesty juice delivers bold taste with less salt while still serving up two full servings of vegetables (1 cup) and 50 calories. In fact, V8 Spicy Hot Low Sodium juice displays the American Heart Association heart-check mark and meets the U.S. government requirements for a low-sodium food.

“We’re pleased to offer a kicked up version of our original Low Sodium V8® juice, which has been a fast-growing part of the V8 franchise over the years,” said Dale Clemiss, Vice President, Beverage Marketing. “People often associate less salt with less flavor. But, V8 Spicy Hot Low Sodium offers the spice and heat people are looking for that’s not often found in low-sodium products.”

A recognized leader in sodium reduction, Campbell is committed to providing great-tasting foods that can also help people manage their sodium intake as part of a healthy diet. In fact, Campbell offers more than 200 reduced sodium products across its portfolio of soups, sauces, beverages, pastas and breads.
