Helpful hints

  • Select Coffee Rich® nondairy creamer or a low phosphorus brand recommended by your dietitian.
  • A & W® is an acceptable brand of root beer for a kidney diet because there are no phosphate additives.
  • When soda is added mixture will foam, so add slowly and stop until bubbles reduce if needed to prevent bubbling over.
