Notes from our Dietitian
You are told many specific food items to avoid in your renal diet. This is because these items contain a higher amount of potassium and/or phosphorus. Since these nutrients are not listed on a nutrition label, you are educated in general to avoid these items. That said, if you knew the amount of potassium and phosphorus in each item you could better monitor your daily intake.
At MagicKitchen.com we have the nutrient information about all the meals on the renal menu including the potassium and phosphorus. We qualify the meal as renal friendly based on the nutritional info for that specific meal including the amount of sodium, potassium, phosphorus and protein. We believe you can have some of the specific food items that you’ve been told to avoid in limited quantities in your diet when the overall nutritional information for the meals is still in line for a renal meal. You can see the nutritional info we use to qualify the meals at the top of the Renal Meal Page and you can see the nutritional info for the specific meal by clicking on the name or picture of that meal.
