Recommended intake of calcium for adults 19–50 years, in milligrams per day (RDA, recommended dietary allowances based on North American and western European data) is  1000 mg a day (1 g).

  • Sesame seeds, whole, roasted - 989 mg calcium / 100 g.
  • Chia seeds, dried - 631 mg calcium / 100 g. 
  • Figs, dried - 162 mg calcium / 100 g, ~ 600 g figs for 1000 mg (1 g) calcium
  • Olives, ripe, canned - 94 mg calcium / 100 g.

Animals are multicellular, eukaryotic organisms of the kingdom Animalia (or Metazoa). All animals can move spontaneously and independently at some point in their lives. Their body plan eventually becomes fixed as they develop, although some undergo a process of metamorphosis later on in their lives. All animals are heterotrophs: they must ingest other organisms or their products for sustenance. Apple
