Good ess gracious 2 bananas a day???
More foods high in potassium are fruit. Bananas of course are most often spoken of, but the truth of the matter is as much as they are talked about, as a highest potassium food, there are better alternatives. Dried apricots (about 70 grams) for example, are rarely ever mentioned, and yet are as much as or more than double the potassium of a comparative banana serving (120 grams). More than double! But how many "experts" keep telling you to eat bananas? Perhaps, because they are getting their information from wrong, tired sources, rather than digging for the truth of the matter.
In comparison, to the trusted and over-promoted banana, there are even still better choices for potassium rich foods. Dried figs (about 75 grams) can have more than 15% more potassium, cantaloupe is about the same - and can be an alternative with about the same potassium content as a banana, but a smaller portion (70 grams) still beats the banana, boasting more than 20% richer potassium content. Dates, (just over 80 grams), also in smaller portions than the banana in this example, provide about 20% more potassium.
But, there are still more foods high in potassium that top all that has been mentioned. (Again, why is everybody of authority praising the glories of the banana, when there are so many, all natural, more potassium rich content foods, that you never hear about)?
If you are indeed certain and properly confirmed that you are deficient in potassium, what beats the over popular banana by miles? Carrot juice, about 240 grams of it offers about 33% more. Prune juice, same quantity, is about the same. The pinto bean on the other hand, about 170 grams, has about 42% more potassium the the banana.
And although each are foods high in potassium, soybeans, winter squash, spinach still have more than that. In order, the best of foods high in potassium are: the potato, northern beans (white beans to some), and beet greens top the chart, compared to the potassium in a banana, can provide as much as 65% more potassium. Foods high in potassium are easier to find than has been reported, as you can see, and much to your benefit.
