    Default Almond milk, rice milk... calcium?

    I have a question regarding milk alternatives. I made it a habit to drink 2 glasses of soy milk every day to be sure my calcium-levels are ok. However, I would like to replace these with some other alternatives from time to time. I bought almond and rice milk but on both boxes there doesn't stand anything about calcium. Sodium yes.. calcium nothing. It's like those products don't contain calcium?! I find this very strange because I know that almonds contain plenty of calcium (see this link). Any ideas?

    They probably don't list it as it's not added to the milk, it's just present in the almonds. I really wouldn't worry about drinking 2 glasses a day, just eat a mix of sesame seeds, almonds, chickpeas, tofu, kale and other calcium-rich foods as part of your weekly diet and you'll be fine.

    Just check out a few brands. I always use brands that add calcium. Rice Dream comes with an added calcium variety and Oatly,too.
