High Potassium Foods – Beef Table

Beef is one of the high potassium foods. It often has a ratio of potassium to sodium of more than 3 to 1, and can provide more than 200 mg of potassium in a serving.
0f887599586d37a High Potassium Foods   Beef TableAs far as concentration, there is 225 mg potassium in 100 gm of meat for bottom round beef to 459 mg for ground beef, 95% lean meat. The least amount of potassium is in fat which is 99 mg in 100 gm of fat. The average amount of potassium in beef is about 323 mg in 3  1/2 oz (100 gm) of meat.
The amount of fat is 3.91 grams for round knuckle beef to 20.15 in 100 gm  for short loin, porterhouse steak. The only exception is the fat cut from the meat which has 70grams of fat in 100 gm of cuttings.
In the table, the cut of beef is for All Grades. The differences in nutrient values were small for different grades. Select Grade has slightly less fat than Choice Grade and a small amount more potassium. All Grades was listed in the table because it is usually in between these two grades, being a mixture.
In the table,”separable lean and fat” means the visible fat on the edge of the cut was included in the cut that was measured.
We converted serving size and weight to the same amount before calculating potassium per serving to allow the potassium per serving to be compared easily.
The weights all are grams except for the potassium and sodium, which are milligrams. The calories, protein, total fat, saturated fat, monounsaturated fat, and polyunsaturated fat, potassium and sodium values given are for 100 grams (about 3 1/2 oz) of food.
As usual, K is potassium, and Na is sodium.
Except for the potassium to sodium ratio and the amount of potassium per serving (which we calculated), the source of data is:
