Ingredients of concern in Keya Sweet Corn Chicken Soup

  • Salt
  • Sunflower Oil
  • Hydrolysed Vegetable Protein

Salt

High sodium diets have been known to be the cause of high blood pressure, heart disease, etc. The recommended daily intake of salt is between 1-3 grams.

Sunflower Oil

Certain vegetable oils contain very large amounts of biologically active fats called Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which could be harmful in excess. Excess polyunsaturated fats may react with oxygen and oxidised Omega-6 fats can damage body functions and perhaps even vital structures like DNA. 

Hydrolysed Vegetable Protein

Hydrolysed vegetable protein (HVP) products are foodstuffs obtained by protein hydrolysis and are used as ingredients in frozen and packaged food.

According to European law wheat and soy are subject to allergen labelling on food information to consumers. We believe that Indian manufacturers of packaged foods must follow the best practices from the developed world and must specify if wheat and soy have been used.

In any case, we believe that the manufacturer must specify the source of vegetable protein.

Other ingredients that are in the product but not a major source of concern in our opinion are:

  • Potato starch 
  • Sugar 
  • Dehydrated vegetables (13.5%) [corn (6%), carrot (4%), onion (1.8%), leeks (0.7%), garlic (0.57%)] 
  • Maltodextrin
  • Yeast extract 
  • Mixed spices 
  • Flavour enhancer IN 627 & IN 631  
  • Thickening agent (IN 451) 
  • Anticaking agent IN 551
