dear joan,
How much potassium is there in a banana? I can't find this information anywhere.

dear baffled about bananas,

A medium-size banana contains a hair over 450 milligrams of potassium. That's just about 10 percent of the daily recommended amount for adults at only 109 calories each.

Bananas aren't the only high-ticket item when it comes to a rich potassium source in your diet. Fruits and vegetables are bursting with potassium. In particular, oranges, grapefruits, tomatoes, potatoes, spinach, and.dried beans. Milk and yogurt are also fabulous sources.

Stay healthy,

Joan
