Varieties of Batchelors Slim a Soup

Batchelors Slim a Soup are the lower calorie alternative to the Cup a Soup range. Soup, of course, is a great way of filling yourself up while you’re on a diet. Drinking a mugful of steaming soup can also help curb the urge to snack on other higher calorie snacks.

Currently, the range of Batchelors Slim a Soups include the following flavours:


Chicken - 55 calories
Chicken & Leek - 50 calories
Minestrone - 61 calories
Tomato - 54 calories
Golden Vegetable - 56 calories

Each box contains 4 sachets. To make it up, simply tip the soup powder into a mug, add boiling water, stir and wait a few minutes to allow it to cool slightly.

So is it worth switching from Cup a Soup to Slim a Soup?

Here’s a look at the comparison between Batchelors Tomato Cup a Soup and Batchelors Tomato Slim a Soup: 


Slim a Soup

9.0g
Fat
1.3g
2.0g
Saturated fat
0.6g
1.0g
Salt
0.75g
1.3g


Although the Cup a Soup is still under 100 calories with 90 per cup, the Slim a Soup has considerably less. The Slim a Soup also has less than half the sugar of Cup a Soup, and nearly half the fat and salt. So overall, the Tomato Slim a Soup looks to be a healthier option out of the two. Batchelors Slim a Soups are available in most larger supermarkets, though not all sell the same varieties.
