  • Thank you for this article. I drink almond milk and take a calcium supplement but it's nice to have some other choices for calcium. Very informative! - 10/22/2016 11:41:41 AM

    Canned pink salmon should top this list. - 5/15/2016 10:55:10 PM
  • Straight up milk makes me gag. I honestly get nauseous after I drink it. I've been drinking almond milk and it has worked wonders. I can eat cereal with milk again and it tastes better than cow milk to me! - 5/15/2016 3:54:38 PM
  • I spread coconut oil on a cookie sheet and put spinach and kale on it. I dry it in the oven at 350 for about 20-30 minutes - 5/15/2016 1:00:04 PM
  • Bring on the Kale and Collard greens. Ditch the soy! Bleh! that stuff is dangerous. - 8/24/2014 9:53:37 AM
  • Wow! There are good foods on the list that I will have to add to my daily diet. Thanks!

    I can't see myself meeting all my calcium needs from the food on that list, unless I ate them all every single day. IMHO anything "fortified" is suspect- may as well take a supplement. I'm grateful I can tolerate dairy. - 6/13/2014 8:55:03 PM
  • I hope the author of this article will check her numbers. Black eyed peas? 1/4 c. dry has 2%. I actually went out and bought a bag, because the canned ones said the same thing, and I figured that somehow the beans lost their nutritional value in the process of canning. Figs? I just bought some. 4 figs have 6%. How is that HIGH in calcium or calcium rich?? - 9/8/2013 8:27:19 PM
  • I'm not lactose intolerant but I just don't eat much dairy. I track my nutrition so it's good to know that I can just increase some of the foods that I already eat to get more Ca++/ - 7/28/2013 8:48:24 AM
  • I've always been lactose intolerant, so lots of this was familiar to me, but other things, like the kale, molasses, black-eyed peas were completely new to me. Now I need to figure out which I can add that won't cause gas (another problem I have). Thanks for the good article! - 7/23/2013 3:56:41 PM
  • right now alot of areas feature farmers markets, a great place to look for blackstrap molasses and collard greens. - 6/11/2013 9:15:22 AM
  • This is so good to know. I don't like milk. - 6/8/2013 7:32:05 AM
  • Great information and good to know as I have an 20 year old son who was just diagnosed as Lactose intolerant after many trips to the Doctor. He's eliminated all milk products and feels wonderful! Nice to know his other options for calcium - 6/7/2013 8:27:35 PM
  • Great article!! Lots of "not out there" info !!

    Stay away from the soda folks big stone maker for the kidneys!! - 6/7/2013 3:36:58 PM
  • Hooray for the commentors who have taken the time to really educate themselves and are able to point out the inaccuracies in this (and other) SP article. - 6/7/2013 10:27:00 AM

    This was very interesting. I had thyroid cancer and had it removed and the doctors at MDA want me to have 1800 mg of Calcium Carbonate a day. I try to eat healthy but availability and affordability of food can be tough waters to navigate. I love key limes and I squeeze them fresh each day in my water. I was told that drinking this first thing in the morning and off and on during the day flushes the kidney stone making particles out of the kidneys before they start. So far after 5 plus years, my kidneys are great! - 6/7/2013 8:30:34 AM
