Helpful hints

  • Biscuits leavened with baking soda and buttermilk are lower in phosphorus compared to baking powder biscuits.
  • One biscuit served with 1/3-cup Country Gravy provides 198 mg sodium and 98 mg phosphorus. Be aware that portion size can make a difference in how much sodium and phosphorus are consumed.
