There are lots of plant foods to choose from!

While most people are aware that dairy and dairy products are a good source of calcium in the diet, not everyone knows that there are many plant based foods that at naturally rich in the critical mineral or ones that provide a fortified source. For a number of reasons though, such as veganism and lactose intolerance, many people are avoiding dairy and products made with it.

 

If you’re looking for non-dairy foods abundant in calcium, try these:

  • Dark green leafy vegetables – turnip greens, kale, collards, bok choy, spinach
  • Broccoli
  • Dried figs
  • Almonds
  • Brazil nuts
  • Sesame seeds
  • Navy beans
  • Soy beans
  • Salmon with the bones

 

Calcium-fortified options include:

  • Soy products – tofu made with calcium sulfate, yogurt
  • Milk substitutes – hemp, soy, almond, rice
  • Fruit juice
  • Breakfast cereals
