How big is a 20 oz. meal? How much will a quart of soup feed?

Do you have any low salt foods available?

We make all of our foods from scratch. There is no added salt in any of ours soups or dinners. We just completed our ingredient lists and we are now working on the nutritional breakdown. It will be added to our labels soon. We often get "complaints" that there is not enough salt in some of our foods, especially our soups. We take pride in the fact that our sodium content in so low.
