Dietitian Q/A

Because of the contents of some questions and the large number we receive, the MUSC Dietitians only answer selected questions. Although we discourage questions regarding personal health problems, scheduling an appointment with the outpatient dietitian to address these concerns is encouraged. Appointments can be made after a physician referral is received.



Enter a keyword or phrase:
 Question:  I would like a list of high potassium foods.

Answer:

The main high potassium foods are: tomatoes, bananas, melons (except watermelon), mangoes, papaya, prunes/prune juice, pomegranate, nectarines, kiwi, orange juice, dried fruit, potatoes, sweet potatoes, dark leafy greens (collards, spinach, etc.), asparagus, beets, mushrooms, rutabagas, some types of squash, soy, coconut, whole grains, oatmeal, dairy products, nuts, seeds and beans (kidney, navy, pinto, etc.).

The amount of potassium someone can eat on a potassium restricted diet varies based on their medical reason for needing a low potassium diet and would be individualized for you by your dietitian. If you are on a potassium restricted diet, it can be beneficial to schedule an appointment with the outpatient dietitian to discuss the full extent of your food options.
