The reason I am asking this is actually related to daily recommended potassium intake, which is stated to be around 4.700 mg daily. However, even if I concentrate all my meals on potassium intake, it's very hard to get near this number (I think around 14 bananas would suffice).
So searching for possible ways to increase intake, I noticed a number of "meal replacements" (like Soylent, but many of them DIY), which use potassium chloride or potassium citrate to provide the necessary intake.
For example, this "Keto Chow" recipe contains 6 grams of potassium citrate, and apparently perfectly provides all the nutrients:

So the "numbers" look rather nice, but I am wondering:
- Are there any downsides using such meals?
- Specifically for potassium, is potassium citrate a safe supplement?
