I have never heard of Utopia nor could I find them online.

My only concern from what you posted, on this item, as it is on many packaged products, is the sodium. You gave the sodium number as the % of the DV. If you tell me what it is in mgs, I will give you my answer. The sugars, are minimal, so while none is optimal, 2 grams for 200 calories is relatively small.

However, based on the %DV, I am assuming it has around 432 mgs of sodium, which is over 2x the calories and far exceeds the amount of sodium I would recommend.

I am also curious as to how much the serving weighs (in grams). My guess is this is not a large serving.

Personally, I would avoid it. For more info on the impact of salt and mortality, there is some recent data you can read about in a blog I wrote recently.
