I am considering using this in my personal Soylent recipe:
The serving size is 3.48 g, which equates to .54 g (540 mg) of potassium gluconate.
My daily RDA is 4.7 g.
So, I divide 4.7 g by .54 g (540 mg) and determine that I need 8.7 servings, then I multiple 8.7 servings by 3.48 g per serving and determine that I need 30.29 g of the powder in order to get 4.7 g of potassium.
That seems like an awful lot. Why is the potassium content of the powder (.54 g) only approximately 1/7th of the serving weight (3.48 g)?
Also, when I do this math, the Soylent recipe builder says I have 116% of my RDA. Is this a glitch or did I totally fail at my math?
