    Does anyone know if low and non fat dairy products have as much calcium as the higher fat ones?

    Good question. I just looked at the IOF website and surprisingly, it seems that skimmed milk has slightly MORE calcium than whole milk! Check out the listing on  http://www.iofbonehealth.org/patients-public/about-osteoporosis/prevention/nutrition/calcium-rich-foods.html - I assume this would apply to other dairy foods like cheese or yoghurt. I'm glad I have another reason to stick to my low fat yoghurt and semi skimmed milk!

    I am told that they are just as high without the fat content and its possible undesired effects.
