Alkaline Nuts List

I’m disappointed with the alkaline nuts list. Not because there are no alkaline nuts – they just don’t get eaten enough to appear on the key foods list.

All is not lost. One objective for my latest alkaline foods lists was to reduce the amount of duplication in my original charts. I decided to do this by using the USDA Key Foods list instead of the full database. I always knew I would have to add other less popular foods, and now is certainly the time.

If you like chestnuts, pine nuts or pumpkin and squash seeds, please talk about them in the Foodary healthy eating forum, and I’ll add them to the list. How about other alkaline nuts or seeds? Please share your experiences and together we can improve the alkaline nuts list. Note that I’m not asking you to supply nutritional information. Just tell me what alkaline nuts and seeds you are most interested in, and I will obtain the nutrient data. You can start by looking at my old nuts and seeds chart.

As you can see from the table below, nuts are high in calories, so it is important to add them sparingly to your diet. However, nuts and seeds are also rich in other important nutrients. If you allocate 100 calories or so from your daily allowance to healthy nuts, then you could improve your diet. Indeed recent research has prompted the FDA to allow some nuts to carry the claim that they can be healthy. Look for products labeled with a claim that eating one ounce of nuts per day could reduce heart risk.

As well as fiber, which I already include in my new alkaline foods lists, nuts are also good sources of:

  • Arginine
  • Vitamin E
  • Folic acid
  • Potassium
  • Unsaturated fats

If you have been told that any of these nutrients are good for your health, please share your experiences and opinions in the healthy eating forum.

Alkaline Nuts List

Alkaline Nuts PhotoThe alkaline nuts list shows various nutrient values for the amount of nuts or seeds that provide 100 calories of energy. As you will see from my Alkaline Food Lists Explanation, calorie control is your first step in creating a healthy diet. Once you get the right proportions of major food groups, you can use the alkaline foods tables to improve your diet. As I’ve already mentioned, the list below is currently without alkaline nuts. They do exist, so let’s work together to identify them, and I will add them to the list.

The list defaults to PRAL order so you can see the least acid nuts and seeds first. Check the relative values for other nutrients by clicking the appropriate heading.

Alkaline Oil List Review

As you can see, all the nuts and seeds included in the Key Foods list are acid forming or neutral. Alkaline nuts do exist, and I will add them as they get discussed in the healthy eating forum.
