I've always found the nutritional facts on this site to be WAY off. Although this soup is simple, it will be high in salt if you use a prepackaged soup base. Search or Google how to season a soup from scratch. I always buy my udon in plain packs, no soup base and make a curried udon soup.

Seriously people, the "Sodium is in that little pkg with the noodles. LOL Just get rid of it and use either low-sodium Soy sauce of better yet I think low-sodium Teriyaki (sp-???) sauce would work fine.
