Happy Thursday, Prenovaters. Coconut Water is all the rage this summer- both on internet search results and in the Prenovate Food-Grading Engine. This refreshing juice poured from whole coconuts is lauded for its low-sugar and high-vitamin content. However, the same high potassium levels that make coconut water a healthful part of a general diet also make it a potential no-no for the strict renal diet.
If your doctors and dietitians have told you to limit your potassium intake, you might want to fall back on an old faithful: Apple Juice. Although apples don't have the exotic reputation that coconuts have in North America, your kidneys will thank you for their lower potassium and sodium levels.
