Is carob better than chocolate on a renal diet?

Carob is similar to chocolate. They are both high in potassium and phosphate.

Unfortunately, it is not a good substitute for chocolate. Speak with your Kidney (Renal) Dietitian regarding your current blood results to find out how much chocolate, if any, can be incorporated into your diet.
