Alkaline Fish List

Alkaline Fish 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 fish products. Or start from the new Food Groups Index (DGA Food Group 5: Seafood).

Here at Foodary, I’ll continue to investigate how diseases and wellbeing are affected by fish. Both as a group, and for individual seafood products.

Individual Seafood Products Science

Where I find studies about the effects of seafood on health and wellbeing, I will summarize them. Including articles on the effects of cod, crab, lobster, mackerel, milkfish, oysters, prawns, salmon, sardines, smoked salmon, shrimp, squid, tilapia, and tuna. So please let me know if you have special interest in any of these foods. Because that helps me prioritize my research.

Alkaline Fish List

I’ve retired the old format for Alkaline Fish List. But the original list is available as a free Alkaline Fish 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 fish 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 Fish

I’ve listed these fish products with the highest acid load first. Where the first number in the list is PRAL value per 100 calorie serving:

  • 42 ┈ Mollusks, clam, mixed species, canned, liquid
  • 17 ┈ Fish, pollock, walleye
  • 16 ┈ Mollusks, cuttlefish, mixed species, raw
  • 15 ┈ Fish, roe, mixed species, raw
  • 14 ┈ Fish, surimi
  • 13 ┈ Mollusks, scallop, mixed species, imitation, made from surimi
  • 13 ┈ Crustaceans, shrimp, mixed species, imitation, made from surimi
  • 13 ┈ Crustaceans, crab, alaska king, raw
  • 13 ┈ Crustaceans, crayfish, mixed species, wild, raw
  • 13 ┈ Crustaceans, shrimp, mixed species, canned

Lowest Acid Load Fish

Here, I’ve listed seafood with the lowest acid load. However, as a protein-rich food, there are no alkaline fish 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 fish 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:

  • 1 ┈ Mollusks, oyster, eastern, cooked, breaded and fried
  • 2 ┈ Fish, mackerel, salted
  • 2 ┈ Fish, sablefish
  • 3 ┈ Mollusks, oyster, eastern, canned
  • 3 ┈ Fish, fish portions and sticks, frozen, preheated
  • 3 ┈ Fish, herring, Atlantic, pickled
  • 3 ┈ Fish, herring, Pacific
  • 3 ┈ Mollusks, clam, mixed species, cooked, breaded and fried
  • 3 ┈ Fish, mackerel, Pacific and jack, mixed species
  • 3 ┈ Fish, spot
  • 3 ┈ Fish, anchovy, european, canned in oil, drained solids
  • 4 ┈ Fish, halibut, Greenland
  • 4 ┈ Mollusks, snail, raw
  • 4 ┈ Fish, catfish, channel, cooked, breaded and fried
  • 4 ┈ Fish, cisco, smoked

For Alkaline Seafood, just add lots of Salad


I’ve listed other food group tables on my food chart 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.

Your Alkaline Fish List

Which aspects of alkaline fish are you interested in? How do you think eating seafood might affect your health or wellbeing? Please tell me your alkaline fish story below.

I’m working on templates that help you identify, understand, and resolve your alkaline fish concerns. In the meantime, you can start by adding notes about what you’ve learned about alkaline fish 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 fish 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.
