10 Dairy-free Foods Packed with Calcium

Prev Slide1 of 11Next Slide

Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body, making up 1-2% of a healthy adult’s body weight. Ninety-nine percent of that calcium is stored in teeth and bones. The body maintains a consistent concentration of calcium. If you are not consuming sufficient calcium through diet, your body will extract the calcium it needs from bone tissue, thereby accelerating bone loss. Calcium requirements are dependent upon age. The recommended daily allowance (RDA) for adults age 19 – 50 is 1000 mg. That number increases to 1200 mg for women beginning at age 51 and for men beginning at age 71.

We've all been bamboozled over the years to think dairy is the be all and end all for calcium. It's all about marketing, not science. Even the FDA is bamboozled..... otherwise why wouldn't they be pushing all the plant-based alternatives? Think I'll stick with science rather than marketing and political posturing......

Regardless of how much calcium, your body needs sufficient Vitamin D to be taken at the same time otherwise the calcium will not get absorbed. That is why it is easier to drink cow's milk and fortified soy milk. Not sure if sesame has D? Anyway I agree, that is not a reasonable portion size for sesame.

How do u consume sesame seeds? And Amrita stop counting calories. When it comes from plants eat your heart out! Cal counting is for when consuming animal fats.
