Go to www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp You can download software from there that allows you to type in the food you are interested in and a nutritional window will pop up with extensive caloric and mineral statistics. You can also google "renal diet" and there are many links to high potassium and phosphorus foods

You can also buy a renal cookbook.  They are really informative, and can teach you how to get the proper nutrition for a person with kidney disease.  I learned a lot from mine. I got one from Amazon.com. Good Luck!
