Is there a reason for listing this twice? One with a pic the other without. Dietitian comment: Yes, there are 2 different portions (4 vs. 6) for those on a lower vs. higher protein eating plan.

Can my daddy have 292 mg sodium if he is dialysis and diabetis patient?? Dietitian comment: Yes, this is an acceptable amount of sodium for an entrée. A low-sodium meal for a 2,000 mg sodium diet (considered low sodium) is around 600 mg.

Is the potassium content of 1 serving correct? Does each burger contain 458mg of K+, if so where does it come from? thank you Moderator: Yes this is correct. Each ounce of meat contributes 100 mg potassium. The remainder is from the onion and seasonings. Even the bun has some potassium.
