  • No. One serving (8 ounces) of each have 25% of your RDA of vitamin D in the form of D3.

  • No.

    You should also keep in mind that it takes a lot of calcium to process milk proteins (the hardest to process), and that the calcium in cow's milk is negated by this fact.

  • Coconut is very high in vitamin D (25-40% RDA depending on brand). Yum too.

  • It's the same amount. It's all fortified, so they have the same amount. It's also in cheese and butter, and fortified cereals. Not generally in yogurt.
    Vitamin D is required for calcium absorption, ObbyDobbie, so I don't know where you're getting that from. Calcium in milk is very bioavailable.
