14 Calcium-Rich Foods That Aren’t a Glass of Milk

Food

Dried figs

Figs are typically known for their sweetness, but their calcium content doesn’t go completely unnoticed. One serving (about 4 figs) has 50 to 60 mg of calcium, along with a decent dose of potassium and fiber.

Whey protein powder

Beyond its muscle-building benefits (thanks to its complete list of essential amino acids), whey protein powder offers nearly 90 mg of calcium per scoop, since it’s derived from cow’s milk. And because many brands require a couple of scoops, you could easily double your intake. How to pick a powder that’s actually good for you? Make sure a form of whey is listed as the first ingredient and avoid ones that contain too much sugar or artificial sweeteners.
