    Nice information to a completely ignorant kidney patient (newly diagnosed) .opened my eyes to another food additive to watch for. It’s really overwhelming and frightening right now. Thanks for the info-the more the better.

    Why aren’t companies required to list phosphorous content for food items purchased in stores as well as restaurant food (well at least fast food)? Who has the time or eyesight to read tiny nutrition labels looking for phosphorous or derivatives thereof and after all that trouble still not know the exact phosphorous amount therein?

    If manufacturers were smart they would start making and marketing low phosphorous and potassium foods which are well labeled for those watching their kidney health. Why doesn’t the FDA require better labeling? Kidney patients should demand this!

    Wouldn’t it be great if one could buy a frozen dinner that tasted good but was not harmful to kidney health? Kidney patients and their families don’t have endless time!
