VEGETABLES AND TUBERS WITH A LOT OF CALCIUM

LIST OF CALCIUM VEGETABLES AND TUBERS (milligrams kg)

Vegetables also contain considerable amounts of calcium. The most outstanding is goose-food (Chenopodium album) containing 309 mg of calcium, more than twice the skimmed milk and almost triple that of whole milk.

Goosefoot, also known as lamb’s quarters or melde is a weed grass that grows abundantly in abandoned plots or uncultivated lands with high content in organic matter. The tender leaves of this plant are edible, although they must be eaten with caution by their high content in oxalates.

Between this vegetable and other vegetables, like eggplants, with only 7 mg of calcium per 100 g of weight, we have a wide variety of vegetables that can meet our needs.
