Cottage cheese (4% or less milk fat) and ricotta cheese (10% or less milk fat) are sources of calcium, providing about 5% and 11% respectively of the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) of calcium. Partially skimmed mozzarella is a good source of calcium (21% RDI). In contrast, most other semi-soft, firm and hard cheeses are an excellent source of calcium (25% or more of RDI).
