How much calcium is in milk?

How much do you need to drink to get a full day's value?


Answer by  Valentine62 (2131)

In a cup of whole milk, there is about 300 mg of calcium. If you drink skim or lowfat milk, calcium cannot be absorbed because there is little to no fat. It depends on your age, how much calcium you need each day; 1-8 years, 500-800 mg, 9 - 18, 1300 mg, 19-50, 1000 mg., and 51 plus, 1200 mg.

You need to drink about three cups of milk a day to get the full daily allowance of calcium. You need about 1,000 miligrams of calcium per day to keep up with the required amount needed for your body if you are over eight years of age. You can also eat cottage chees and yogurt for calcium.
