mccoy Posted July 17, 2018 Report Share Posted July 17, 2018 (edited) After re-reading MR's section on calcium in his supplementation for veg(etari)ans, I started to edit, in cronometer, Ca out of spinach and oxalate-rich vegetables. Also, I realized that calcium in tofu may not be there if the coagulant used is not Ca-based. So, my cronometer levels of Ca plummeted down. No kale here in Italy, only some is available and dried. And no fortified foods. What to do beyond pure supplementation? I was pondering, when the very obvious answer materialized in my mind. Very much obvious, but lost in the background mental noise. Water was the answer. I googled the calcium content in commercial mineral waters (those available in supermarkets), and there it is, a list with the top entries. The highest one, of a volcanic origin, contains 390 mg per liter. And that of course is very much available, being in its ionic form. Yesterday I went to the supermarket and made of stock of that water. Since I never drink less than 1.5 liters per day, that's already almost 600 mg of available Ca, about 60% of the RDA. In the summer I very often drink 2 liters and more, which will allow me to be consistently above the RDA, together with the other vegan food. Hope I won't have now to start worrying about too much calcium... Edited July 17, 2018 by mccoy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
