Soy and Rice Milks Fall Short of Calcium
Creighton University researchers analysed fortified beverages and discovered that soy- and rice milks fall short of their calcium claims. Eighty-five percent of the calcium used for fortification was stuck to the bottom of the cartons and it took the vigour of a paint mixer to loosen it, says Dr Robert Heaney, the study author. "Try calcium-fortified orange juice. We found that juices were actually a good source of calcium," Dr Heaney says. Just shake it first to distribute the calcium evenly.
