Alkaline Beef 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 beef products. Or start from the new Food Groups Index (DGA Food Group 5: Meats).
Here at Foodary, I’ll continue to investigate how diseases and wellbeing are affected by beef. Both as a group, and for individual beef products.
Individual Beef Products Science
Where I find studies about the effects of beef on health and wellbeing, I will summarize them. Including articles on the effects of corned beef, ground beef, roast beef, and steak. So please let me know if you have special interest in any of these foods. Because that helps me prioritize my research.
Acid-Alkaline Beef List
I’ve retired the old format for Alkaline Beef Products List. But the original list is available as a free Alkaline Beef Products 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 beef consumption. In particular, you can now compare PRAL values per 100 calories. So here are two examples from opposite ends of the range…
Highest Acid Load Beef Products
I’ve listed these beef products with the highest acid load first. Where the first number in the list is PRAL value per 100 calorie serving:
- 13 ┈ Beef, variety meats and by-products, kidneys, cooked, simmered
- 13 ┈ Beef, variety meats and by-products, liver, cooked, pan-fried
- 12 ┈ Beef, variety meats and by-products, spleen, cooked, braised
- 11 ┈ Beef, variety meats and by-products, heart, cooked, simmered
- 10 ┈ Beef, variety meats and by-products, lungs, cooked, braised
- 10 ┈ Beef, round, eye of round roast, separable lean only, trimmed to 1/8″ fat, select, cooked, roasted
- 9 ┈ Beef, chuck, clod steak, separable lean only, trimmed to 0″ fat, USDA select, cooked, braised
- 9 ┈ Beef, round, knuckle, tip side, steak, separable lean and fat, trimmed to 0″ fat, select, cooked, grilled
- 9 ┈ Beef, brisket, flat half, separable lean only, trimmed to 1/8″ fat, select, cooked, braised
- 9 ┈ Beef, chuck, arm pot roast, separable lean only, trimmed to 0″ fat, select, cooked, braised
Lowest Acid Load Beef Products
Here, I’ve listed beef products with the lowest acid load. However, as a protein-rich food, there are no alkaline beef products. 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 beef 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:
- 0 ┈ Beef, variety meats and by-products, suet, raw – PDS READY- 7/2006
- 1 ┈ Beef, retail cuts, separable fat, cooked
- 2 ┈ Beef, cured, breakfast strips, raw or unheated
- 2 ┈ Beef, rib, shortribs, separable lean and fat, choice, raw
- 2 ┈ Beef, rib, large end (ribs 6-9), separable lean and fat, trimmed to 1/2″ fat, prime, raw
- 2 ┈ Beef, rib, whole (ribs 6-12), separable lean and fat, trimmed to 1/2″ fat, prime, raw
- 2 ┈ Beef, ground, 70% lean meat / 30% fat, raw
- 2 ┈ Beef, variety meats and by-products, tongue, raw
- 2 ┈ Beef, composite of trimmed retail cuts, separable lean and fat, trimmed to 1/2″ fat, prime, raw
- 2 ┈ Beef, chuck, blade roast, separable lean and fat, trimmed to 1/2″ fat, prime, raw
- 2 ┈ Beef, rib, shortribs, separable lean and fat, choice, cooked, braised
- 2 ┈ Beef, cured, corned beef, brisket, raw
- 2 ┈ Beef, sandwich steaks, flaked, chopped, formed and thinly sliced, raw
- 2 ┈ Beef, variety meats and by-products, mechanically separated beef, raw
- 3 ┈ Beef, short loin, top loin, separable lean and fat, trimmed to 1/2″ fat, prime, raw
Is Beef Acidic or Alkaline?
Beef is always acid-forming by itself. Because of its protein content. But the secret to alkaline diet planning is to include some essential acidic foods. Then balance your total diet with more alkalizing foods. So you can make a beef meal alkaline by adding lots of veges.
Note that the photograph shows a sirloin steak with roasted vegetables. So I chose that as it is not one of the most acidic cuts of beef. Also note that is a serving for 4 people. Because we each had half of the six-ounce sirloin. Then filled the plate with salad.
Your Alkaline Beef
I have listed other food group tables on my food list description page.
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.
I’m working on templates that help you identify, understand, and resolve your alkaline beef concerns. In the meantime, you can start by adding notes about what you’ve learned about alkaline beef so far.
All you do is highlight any text that interests you. Then click “Annotations” to personalize any Foodary page. Which means you can keep your alkaline beef notes linked here, where you can always find them.
Do you need help with annotations? Or other unanswered questions or unresolved concerns? Then please tell me below. Or, if you prefer to use email, then subscribe to my free newsletter.
