Alkaline Food Lists Explanation

Foodary Logo

Alkaline food lists are nutrition statements for key foods from the USDA database. I’ve called the new tables lists to distinguish them from earlier versions that I called Acid-Alkaline Food Charts. The data is from the same source, the USDA nutrition database, but I’ve reduced the number of items and increased the amount of nutritional information.

Eventually, the data will form the heart of an interactive healthy recipes system. I’ve introduced these new changes to encourage debate about what are the most important aspects of eating for health.

Alkaline Food Lists Introduction

The old charts listed calories and PRAL (a measure of the acid or alkaline effects of food). The charts showed values for 100g servings of every food and drink item in the USDA database. This caused confusion on 2 fronts:

  1. A fixed weight makes it very difficult to compare different food items.
  2. Some items have an overwhelming number of variations, and many obscure items are completely unknown to most people.

Reducing the list to less than 600 key foods will inevitably exclude some foods that many people need to analyze. As I identify those, I will add extra items to the lists. You can request your own items on the eating for health forum, or the Foodary Facebook page.

100 Most Acid Foods

The food high in acid list shows the 100 most acidifying foods from the USDA nutrition database. Some of these are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. They should not be avoided, but should be balanced by a greater quantity of alkaline producing foods.

To find suitable alkalizing foods, you can consult my Most Alkaline Foods List. For better variety, I’ve listed all foods by food group, and you can read about these in my Basic Acid Alkaline Food Chart Introduction.

Remember that the table lists 100g portions of food. Many foods on this list are concentrated, and will normally be used in much smaller quantities – simply adjust the PRAL value to suit the amount used.

Beware of the high value for the top of the list. Baking powder can contain a range of organic and inorganic compounds that may distort the true PRAL value.
