An average 8 oz. (226 g) serving of plain yogurt or milk delivers more than 200 mg (0.2 g) of phosphorus. Those who consume cheeses such as cheddar, Swiss, and mozzarella also benefit from the recommended doses of phosphorus. Even treats such as milkshakes, chocolate pudding, and eggnog are high in the mineral.

● Starches, nuts, and grains also consist of sources high in phosphorus.
