I have just started a low potassium diet and am trying to learn! Is it necessary to use instant rice or can I use regular rice. I think I am finding that processed food is less in potassium, am I correct? I always make my own stock so know it is salt free.
Thanks in advance for any help. Barbara

    Hi Barbara! You’re in the right place if you’re looking for low potassium meal ideas. I’m going to check with our team of dietitians and get back to you about the rice question as soon as possible. Making your own stock is a great way to reduce sodium! Thanks for your question.
