When vegans take more than 525 mg calcium intake a day the risk on bonefractures is
not increased. This is partly because vegans on average exercise (move) more, smoke
less and have a healthier BMI.
usually 25% of the calcium is absorbed into the body. At growing kids and pregnant
woman the levels can rise to 50-60%.
The DRI for calcium is roughly based on an average absorption of calcium from foods
of 25%. This means adults should aim to absorb about 250 mg of calcium per day.

Influences on intake
Fibre, phytaat, oxalate (spinach, rhubarb, swiss chard, amandels) and cafeine prevent
a good intake of calcium.
The oxalate level in a plant food is the main determinant of how much calcium can be
absorbed.
High intake of proteines and/or salt kan rise the uitscheiding of calcium.
Vitamine D and exercise stimulate the absorption of calcium in the body.
The phosfor calcium verhouding has to be taken into account and should be good. To
much of phosfor against calcium can prevent the intake of calcium. You find phosfor in
animal foods and whole wheat grainproducts.

Notes
The amount of calcium in plant foods is somewhat dependent on the amount of
calcium in the soil.
Studies have shown that calcium in fortified soymilk, bok choy, kale, and mustard
greens is absorbed well and that the calcium in spinach and rhubarb is not absorbed
well.
Based on oxalate levels, the calcium in turnip greens, watercress, and broccoli should
be absorbed well and those in collards moderately well. Based on oxalate levels, the
calcium in beet greens and swiss chard should not be absorbed well.
Fortified beverages should be well-shaken to make sure the calcium has not settled to
the bottom of the carton.
