Milk calcium

Milk calcium, an essential nutrient for the body

Nutritional quality of milk calcium: a vital asset

Calcium present in the milk is one of the essential nutrients for the human body (with D-vitamin, magnesium and phosphorus for example).

Product information

A continuous need throughout life

The human body produces no calcium, as a result intake of calcium through food is vital. Calcium from dairy products offers the best intesinal absorption as well as the best assimilation by bones. Milk calcium is also known to be the “reference” calcium, it should ideally constitute ⅔ of our daily intakes.

From birth until the end of growth, calcium quantity in bones increases from 30 g to 1.2 kg. Insufficient consumption leads to deficiency that may have strong impacts on health.

Important actions on bones and on body

Calcium represents around 2% of body weight, 99% in bones and teeth. Calcium helps solidifying them and keeping them healthy (calcification).

The rest has an effect on the entire body, mainly on:

  • Calcium rate in blood (calcaemia)
  • Blood clotting
  • Arterial pressure
  • Cell renewals

Calcium presence in milk, a natural and ingenious process

Thanks to a peculiar digestive system, cattles have the capacity to absorb nutrients from their alimentation. These nutrients, among which calcium is present, are then used by the animal cells before being transfered to the milk.

Diverse industrial uses

  • Nutritional supplements
  • Dietetic, isotonic or sport beverages
  • Nutrition bars
  • Bakery products
  • Calcium-enriched dairy produce
