Is 1 tsp of bone meal equal to 1 tsp of ground egg shells? Do they have the same amount of calcium?
It isn't the same at all. Bone meal has phosphorus in it as well as calcium. Read the label, a 1/2 tsp of egg shell has about 900 mg of calcium, no idea how much the bone meal has. My NOW bone meal has 1000 mg per 3 grams. Unfortunately I neglected to put in how much 3 grams is! A teaspoon? Tablespoon?
So 4.2 grams of sugar equals 1 tsp. However, this could be different with bone meal because it may not weigh the same as sugar....right?
So if something calls for 2 tsp of bone meal....how many tsp of egg shell would that be? Or would I just need to figure it out depending on how many pounds of food there is and add 900 mg of egg shell per pound of food.....
I am doing a bit of home cooking for Duncan since he can't tolerate RMBs every day of the week. I use ground egg shells for calcium.....but the recipe calls for bone meal. Doh! lol
