Campbell's chicken noodle soup vs. broth

While I normally make my own chicken soups from scratch (do miss the days when I could get just chicken backs), whenever I'm feeling ill from a cold, etc, there's nothing quite as satisfying as a bowl of Campbell's chicken noodle soup. Since I just used up the two cans I purchased this past fall, it came time to buy two more.

To my surprise, a can of chicken noodle soup was 80 cents this morning while the same size can of their chicken broth was $1.58 (about normal from what I recall). What was different was that I took time to compare the ingredients.

Other than some noodles, a few small pieces of chicken and 890 vs. 750 mg of salt, I'm not really seeing much difference.

Does it really cost them that much to strain out the chicken & noodles to get to the broth?
