If you are in a place where the Potassium content of foods is not a required listing on the nutrition label, then odds are that you are actually getting a lot more than is showing up on your tracker. If you are basing things on items which you put in yourself, or have been entered by other users, then you will not be including Potassium at all for those foods.
Here is the listing by nutrient from the USDA that might help you figure out some of the higher Potassium foods: www.ars.usda.gov/Services/docs.htm?docid=2
I also use NutritionData.self.com ( nutritiondata.self.com/facts/dairy-and-egg
) in order to get the Potassium and other nutrient content for items in the database here, or that I'm entering mysef, so that I can include all of the items that aren't required to be listed on the label. By manually inputting all of the nutrients for each food, I feel that I'm getting a better picture of what I'm actually eating.
Hope this helps!
Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.
Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.
