Calcium absorption from vegetables is better than that of milk.
9 May 2008

Calcium absorption from milk is approximately 32 percent whereas broccoli, brussels sprouts, mustard greens, turnip greens, and (most importantly) kale range between 40-64 percent. Beans and bean products, such as tofu, are also considerably rich in calcium. Note: spinach is one exception and does not absorb calcium like other vegetables.
