Non Dairy Calcium

Daryl Warren - Monday, March 30, 2015


Calcium contributes to maintaining healthy bones, teeth, joints and blood vessels. It also helps with the regulation of blood pressure and the prevention of diabetes. The amount of calcium needed varies from person to person (700 mg to 1000 mg per day), but if someone doesn’t get enough calcium in their diet the calcium needed may be borrowed from your bones. This can obviously lead to problems overtime such as bone loss.

So for those who don’t eat animal products such as vegetarians and vegans other sources of calcium needs to be found. Below are a list of non-dairy and animal product free sources of calcium.

Oranges

-        One orange contains 60 mg of calcium, they are also a great source of vitamin C, which helps protect the immune system.

Tofu

-        Soy beans and soy products such as tofu are a great source of calcium. For example Australian Eatwell soy hakea tofu contains 328 mg of calcium per 100 gram serving.

Almonds

-        Are also rich in calcium as well as protein. They keep you fuller for longer and thus can help with weight loss.

Broccoli

-        Per 100 gram serving of broccoli is 47 mg of calcium. Broccoli also has sources of vitamin C and K.
