      inch is.

      But just to give an idea, the 1/2 tsp of the gel contains 78 mg of elemental
      potassium.

      A typical tablet contains 99mg. So you'd need to give about 3/4 of that
      tablet to equal 1/2 tsp gel.

      A powdered product contains 135mg per 1/4 tsp. So you'd need to give about
      1/8 tsp of that powder to equal 1/2 tsp gel. // Rosemary
