Potassium is now being included on labels but occasionally a label will express it as % Daily Value instead of milligrams. Is there a formula for converting % Daily Value to milligrams?
I did find this "*DV = Daily Value. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) developed DVs to help consumers compare the nutrient contents of products within the context of a total diet. The DV for potassium used for the values in Table 2 is 3,500 mg for adults and children aged 4 and older . This DV, however, is changing to 4,700 mg as the updated Nutrition and Supplement Facts labels are implemented . The updated labels and DVs must appear on food products and dietary supplements beginning in January 2020, but they can be used now . FDA does not currently require food labels to list potassium content unless a food has been fortified with this nutrient, but they do require potassium content to be listed on the updated label. Foods providing 20% or more of the DV are considered to be high sources of a nutrient, but foods providing lower percentages of the DV also contribute to a healthful diet."
So based on this paragraph, would it be correct to multiply whatever the % DV is by 4700 milligrams to convert to milligrams?
eta: The source for the paragraph quoted above is the National Institutes of Health Office of Dietary Supplements Potassium Fact Sheet.
