  • Mmmm, Silk Almondmilk is delicious. You might need to give it a few weeks for your tastebuds to adjust to whatever you end up switching to.
    To answer your question, the almond milk actually has MORE calcium than the cow's milk. 1 cup of almondmilk has 45% of your RDA of calcium, 1 cup of cow's has 30%.

  • Silk Soy Milk, Almond Milk, Or even Coconut milk are all great ways to get calcium! :)

  • Yes, it is a great way to get calcium, but calcium supplements might be better if you don't like the taste of it. They even make chocolate chews with calcium so you don't have to swallow the horse pills.

    And you might want to take the caps lock off. All caps is considered yelling. I noticed your other question was all caps too, or I wouldn't have mentioned it.

  • No person needs to drink cow's milk. You should stay away from soy milk. Soy is a phytoestrogen. You can get calcium from other foods.

  • If you're going with Silk, make it the almond, NOT the soy. Much better. Soy is awful stuff. And if you can't have almond, seek out other sources that have calcium - some veggies have more calcium than milk, plus you'd have a veggie serving too.

  • Yes, good calcium source, just more expensive.
