Alkaline Nuts and Seeds Update
I’m moving nutrient lists to ALKAscore. Where I’m also reconfiguring them to match the latest food groups. So it’s best to search for your favorite alkaline nuts & seeds. Or start from the new Food Groups Index (DGA Food Group 5: Nuts, Seeds, & Soy).
Here at Foodary, I’ll continue to investigate how diseases and wellbeing are affected by nuts and seeds. Both as a group, and for individual nuts and seeds.
Individual Nuts and Seeds Science
Where I find studies about the effects of nuts and seeds on health and wellbeing, I will summarize them. Including articles on the effects of almonds, baruka nuts (Dipteryx alata Vogel), cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and walnuts. So please let me know if you have special interest in any of these foods. Because that helps me prioritize my research.
Alkaline Nut & Seed List
I’ve retired the old format for Alkaline Nuts and Seeds List. But the original list is available as a free Alkaline Nuts and Seeds Spreadsheet. Or, you will find it in the free resources listed in your dashboard if you subscribe to my free Foodary Nexus Newsletter…

I’ve added extra columns to the spreadsheet to help you make choices about seed and nut consumption. In particular, you can now compare PRAL values per 100 calories. So here are two examples from opposite ends of the range…
Most Acidic Nuts and Seeds
I’ve listed these nuts and seeds with the highest acid load first. Where the first number in the list is PRAL value per 100 calorie serving:
- 11 ┈ Seeds, sunflower seed flour, partially defatted
- 10 ┈ Seeds, sesame flour, low-fat
- 9 ┈ Seeds, safflower seed meal, partially defatted
- 6 ┈ Seeds, cottonseed flour, low fat (glandless)
- 6 ┈ Seeds, sunflower seed kernels, oil roasted, with salt added
- 6 ┈ Seeds, cottonseed meal, partially defatted (glandless)
- 5 ┈ Seeds, pumpkin and squash seed kernels, roasted, with salt added
- 5 ┈ Seeds, sesame flour, high-fat
- 4 ┈ Seeds, sunflower seed butter, with salt added
- 4 ┈ Seeds, sesame butter, tahini, type of kernels unspecified
Most Alkaline Nuts and Seeds
Here, I’ve listed nuts and seeds with the lowest acid load. But you must remember that we never aim to eliminate acid-forming foods. Because we need to balance some acidic foods with more alkaline foods. So that daily PRAL totals become negative.
Therefore, choosing nuts and seeds with the lowest acid load makes it easier to achieve your daily PRAL target. So, this list continues with the format of starting with PRAL value per 100 calorie serving:
- -27 ┈ Nuts, coconut water (liquid from coconuts)
- -21 ┈ Seeds, sisymbrium sp. seeds, whole, dried
- -10 ┈ Seeds, breadnuttree seeds, raw
- -9 ┈ Nuts, chestnuts, european, boiled and steamed
- -8 ┈ Seeds, breadfruit seeds, roasted
- -3 ┈ Seeds, pumpkin and squash seeds, whole, roasted, with salt added
- -3 ┈ Nuts, beechnuts, dried
- -3 ┈ Nuts, chestnuts, japanese, roasted
- -3 ┈ Nuts, chestnuts, chinese, roasted
- -3 ┈ Nuts, ginkgo nuts, raw
- -2 ┈ Nuts, acorn flour, full fat
- -2 ┈ Nuts, pine nuts, pinyon, dried
- -2 ┈ Nuts, acorns, dried
- -2 ┈ Seeds, lotus seeds, dried
- -1 ┈ Nuts, coconut milk, frozen (liquid expressed from grated meat and water)
I’ve listed other food group tables on my food chart description page.
Your Alkaline Nuts and Seeds
Remember: these tables help you make better food choices, but the only way to confirm they are having the desired effect is by measuring the pH (acidity/alkalinity) of your urine. This is a simple process using widely available pH test strips or meters.
