consumption is associated with a lower dietary energy density and a better diet
quality in US adults - "Br J Nutr. 2014 Jan 2:1-7 -
"dietary energy density (ED) ... Compared with non-consumers (n 9307), soup
consumers (n 1291) had a lower body weight (P= 0·002), a lower waist
circumference (P= 0·001) and a trend towards a lower total energy intake (P=
0·087). Soup consumption was associated with a lower dietary ED (P< 0·001); this
was independent of whether data on beverage or water consumption were included.
Diet quality, as measured by the Healthy Eating Index 2005, was significantly
better in soup consumers (P= 0·008). Soup consumption was also associated with a
reduced intake of total fat and an increased intake of protein, carbohydrate and
dietary fibre, as well as several vitamins and minerals (P< 0·05 for all).
However, it was also associated with a higher intake of Na (P< 0·001). The
relationship between soup consumption and body weight could be due to a reduced
dietary ED and an improved diet quality. Consumers need to pay attention to
their Na intake and choose low-Na products for a healthier diet"
