MILK AND FOOD WITH CALCIUM
Is milk the richest food in calcium?
There are other foods with a lot of calcium, other than dairy products.
The richest foods in calcium are wakame kelp and hiziki, which contain about 1,400 mg of calcium per 100g. each.
These foods constitute a source of calcium (and other minerals) very important in the diet of many populations where no dairy is consumed.
They are followed in calcium content by sesame seeds, with 1,000mg per 100g., A calcium content similar to that is provided by cheese.
Other food with a lot of calcium?
Broccoli contains almost as much calcium as milk, 90 mg per 100g. In other words, a large broccoli dish contains almost as much calcium as 1 cup of milk; in addition, broccoli calcium has a higher % absorption than milk. Two handfuls of almonds contain both calcium and 1 yogurt.
Therefore, there are many foods rich in calcium in addition to dairy.
Dairy (milk, cheese, yogurt) is rich in calcium. Seaweed, almonds, sesame and broccoli are also rich in this mineral.
