Potassium is a mineral found in foods that assist in a wide range of essential body functions. It isnโ€™t naturally produced in that body so getting the right amount of potassium is important. Consuming either too much or too little can lead to health complications. You can control the amount of potassium you get in your diet by being aware of what foods are low or high in potassium. Also be aware of serving sizes. Most people get the right amount of potassium by eating a well-balanced diet

Hidden Potassium

Some foods and drinks can have hidden potassium as well as herbal or dietary supplements. They can be found in many diet, sports or protein drinks and diet bars as well. This is because products like these are meant to replace the potassium that is lost during exercise. Salt substitutes are another product with high levels of hidden potassium. Because food labels do not have to include the amount of potassium, it can still be unknowingly found in products.
