OJ High in Potassium and Good Source of Calcium?

An online article lists 15 foods high in potassium; says orange juice is also a good source of calcium...


Orange juice is not a good source of calcium (unless fortified/added). On average, a one-cup serving contains less than 3% of the Daily Value for calcium. A “good source” must have at least 10% DV. Also, to be “high in” potassium a food needs to contain at least 700 mg per FDA serving, and none of the 15 foods listed has that much. Most of them, however, do contain 10% DV, making them a “good source,” but there are many more than 15 foods that can do that, including plenty of fruits, vegetables, legumes and dairy products.
