Any type of baked potato has more potassium than a banana. It's been proven in a study of different foods and their benefits. You can check it out on google if you want to verify that the potato has more potassium.
Here's the breakdown to include some other foods in this:
Baked potato, with skin, 1 medium (844mg)
Avocado, 1/2 medium (742mg)
White beans, canned, 1/2 cup (595mg)
Yogurt, fat-free, plain, 8 oz (579mg)
Tomato juice, 1 cup (535mg)
Orange juice, fresh, 1 cup (496mg)
Cantaloupe, diced, 1 cup (482mg)
One large banana contains about 487mg of potassium, which is only 14% of the DRI (Daily Required Intake) of 4,000mg. This means I need to eat 7 or 8 large bananas each day to reach the daily recommended allowance of potassium, if my only source was bananas.
