Alkaline Breakfast List

This alkaline breakfast list is an update to my Acid-Alkaline Breakfast Cereals Chart. I have reduced the number of food items down to those included in the USDA Key Foods list. I have also increased the amount of nutrition data to include more than just a measure of the acid-alkali affects.

Breakfast is an important start to the day, and current Harvard nutrition advice recommends whole grain cereals. In fact, whole grain cereals should make up one quarter of our daily calorie intake.

Alkaline Breakfast List

Alkaline Breakfast PhotoI have listed the breakfast cereals in descending alkalinity (PRAL) order, but you can click any column heading to reorder the table. See the links within the table for explanations of the nutrition data. That explanations page also has links to other alkaline foods lists that you can use to analyze your total diet. Where your total diet is weak, use the tables to find healthier options.

I will improve the alkaline breakfast table in future to allow you to input your own nutritional requirements.

Alkaline Breakfast List Review

As you can see, few breakfast cereals from the key foods list have an alkalizing effect on the body. Those that do are overloaded with sugar and salt. Your healthiest choice is to select wholegrain breakfast cereals that are naturally high in fibre, but without added sugar and salt. Add fresh ripe fruit for sweetness if you wish.
