Comment on Is this common deficiency sabotaging YOUR health? by Erik.
I came across your article and largely agree with what you’re saying. One thing I’ll point out is that potassium was not a required nutrient on food labels, so you may be consuming more potassium than you think. The FDA has changed this. Potassium along with Vitamin D are now going to be required on the labels, but the rules haven’t gone into full effect yet. You can find more info on this on the FDA’s website.
I also think it would be helpful if you adjusted your chart for potassium rich foods with regard to sun dried tomatoes. 100gs of sun dried tomatoes has a ton of potassium, but no one is going to sit down and eat that many sun dried tomatoes. Check out the label of some typical 8.5 oz jars of sun dried tomatoes. One serving is about 15 grams. 100g would require eating nearly the entire jar! That’s a bad idea when you see how much salt is typically included.
