Potassium - 10 of the most potassium-rich foods at a glance!

Potassium is an important mineral that fulfills numerous functions in our body. Potassium plays an important role, especially for the transmission of stimuli in the nervous system. But it is also essential for our fluid balance, our blood pressure, all muscles, our energy level and our heart, together with sodium!

Fortunately, there are plenty of foods that contain potassium! Our daily requirement is around 2000 milligrams. However, the potassium level is also influenced by our salt consumption. Too much salt upsets the delicate balance of potassium, sodium and chloride, which is essential for the body to function optimally. Most of the time, these 3 substances are also called together, as they are electrolytes that interact with each other.

Many plant-based foods contain enough potassium to meet your daily needs:

1. Soybeans (approx. 1800 mg / 100 g)

2.Apricots, dried (approx. 1700 mg / 100 g)

3. White beans (approx. 1300 mg / 100 g)

4. Peas (approx. 900 mg / 100 g)

5.Dates / figs, dried (approx. 800 mg / 100 g)

6. Spinach (approx. 550 mg / 100 g)

7. Kale (approx. 500 mg / 100 g)

8.Avocado (approx. 480 mg / 100 g)

9. Potatoes (approx. 420 mg / 100 g)
