These fruits can be eaten by those on a low potassium diet. These fruits do not have the lowest levels of potassium in a serving, but are in between the low potassium fruits mentioned in the last post and high potassium fruits. For the most part they can be eaten by those on a low potassium foods diet. But to keep potassium intake low, they should be eaten in limited amounts. They do not need to be avoided as much as the high potassium foods.
If you need to be on a diet of low potassium foods, you should determine how much potassium you are allowed in a day, and then determine how much of the various foods you can eat. Almost all foods have some potassium. The only major exception is oils. The lower the potassium the more you can eat. These moderately low potassium fruits can be eaten in fair amounts except by those people who have to severely limit their potassium.
Some of the foods in the table are the same as those in the low potassium fruits table. This table also includes a few new fruits, such as grapes, raspberries, boysenberries, pineapple, cherries, rhubarb, Asian pears and watermelon.
The weights for the potassium and sodium are milligrams. The potassium and sodium values given are for 100 grams of food.
As usual, K is potassium, and Na is sodium.
Except for the amount of potassium per serving and the potassium sodium ratio (which we calculated), the source of data is: USDA National Nutrient Database Standard Reference – Release 22.
