The Best Dairy-Free Ways to Get More Calcium #17: Tofu

November 08, 2014 1 min read

Tofu is one of those odd foods I could never quite eat, even though it's one of the healthiest low-fat proteins around. It's the silky, slimy texture that throws me off, I think! A single cup of firm tofu contains 1722 milligrams of calcium, which is nearly twice as much of the mineral as you need every day. Silky tofu contains about half the calcium of firm tofu, but it's still an excellent source of the mineral. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="500"] Source: bbcgoodfood.com[/caption] You'll find that tofu is one of the healthiest foods around, offering benefits like:
  • Providing dozens of antioxidants
  • Promoting heart health by reducing inflammation and lowering blood pressure
  • Preventing or reducing your risk of certain types of cancer
  • Reducing the risk of diabetes by increasing insulin sensitivity
  • Preventing and treating obesity
  • Aiding in oral health
Basically, tofu is, pound for pound, one of the best sources of protein on the planet (excluding insects and bugs, of course!). It's very low in fat and calories, but high in amino acids.
