Dietitian Health Tip: Dairy isn’t your only source for calcium

Fortified soy, almond, and rice milk are alternatives to cow’s milk for calcium. Adults between the ages of 19-50 need 1000 mg of Calcium/day and those that are 51+ years require 1200 mg of calcium/day.

A cup of milk, fortified rice, soy or almond milk provides about 300mg of calcium. Other non-dairy sources of calcium include almonds, canned salmon, white beans, sesame seeds, turnip greens and cooked spinach.
