Getting Calcium If You’re Lactose Intolerant

Here’s a list of alternatives

People with lactose intolerance should restrict their intake of dairy foods and other sources of lactose, which include foods containing whey; curds; milk by-products; dry milk solids; and nonfat dry milk powder. 

But then how do you get enough bone-enriching calcium? 

While it’s best to check with your doctor, here are some calcium-rich foods that are probably safe for the lactose-intolerant, provided by the University of Virginia Health System:

  • Leafy green vegetables such as broccoli and kale.
  • Fish such as salmon and sardines.
  • Yogurts with active cultures, which can help make the yogurt easier to digest.
  • Foods rich in vitamin D, such as eggs and liver, which help the body absorb calcium.
