You may be looking at this in the wrong way. Concern yourself with the current that the inductor is able to pass with reasonable losses. In that case, the current it is able to carry is a simple function of the size of wire you use.

power handling is related to the cross sectional area of
the toroid core and the frequency at which it is operated.

a web search will find the relevant information.

switchmode powersupplies need inductors on the outputs, and as far as I can tell, these were inductors...
