It's not listed on the label. I looked up Bayview Farms and Sunnysyide Farms to see if they had a full nutritional list or facts on the non-milk. But I can't seem to find a website on them. The labels don't direction to a phone # or web site either.
I didn't know that about the nutrition labels. I thought they had to list everything.

Does the label at the store actually show potassium as being 0mg, or does it just not list it? There are some foods that don't list it on the label even though it's a nutrient in the product.
I noticed on the Biggest Loser show on tuesday night, Jillian was talking to the Helen (Pink) and telling her the needs and benefits of drinking milk. Potassium was in that list of vitamin/nutrient.
I recently purchased "soy milk" which has 350 mg of potassium per serving. I was reading milk (non-fat, whole or 2%, 1%) labels and none of these labels listed potassium. Thus prompting me to buy the "soy milk".
But when I go to "my nutrition tracker" and go to "add food" and go to "food search" and enter "non-fat" milk and look at the nutritional values it shows 1 svg (8 oz) as having 406 mg of potassium.
I have looked up information on "calorie king" under non-fat milk and it shows 419 mg of potassium per svg (8 oz)
I looked on eLook.org and they show non-fat milk with potassium at 415 mg per svg (8 oz)
I looked up the info on "calorie count", the non-fat milk shows potassium at 382 mg per svg (8 oz)
So as you can see it really has me wondering which nutritional value is correct. Not that I have to have the exact exact amount "mg" wise. But is it 0 mg like the labels at the food store or what I have looked up and what spark people nutritional data shows?
