To find out the nutritional value of most anything type into Google the ingredient you want and then nutritional value. Most things should come up.

But, do you really mean the sodium content? No potassium level is listed for hoisin that I can see. However, the sodium content is 260 mg. per TBS and there are 3 tsp. to a tablespoon making it 86.67 mg. of sodium per tsp. of hoisin.

Thanks Andy - I only looked at one source and then got sidetracked!

Hoisin - Potassium

Thank you all. This is what I wanted to know. (though I do not normally eat 100grams of hoisin !)

PS
Potassium is critical to my diet -- I suffer from CKD (Chronic Kidmey Disease)
