Alkaline Pasta List

My alkaline pasta list covers all the USDA Cereal Grains and Pasta food group. As such, it can be a source of healthy whole grains, which are important for nutrition, though rarely very alkaline.

The key to understanding pasta in an alkaline diet is to understand the big picture. An alkaline diet is always alkaline in total, but it must contain around 20-25% acid forming foods. The secret is to incorporate acid foods wisely, and look to maximize healthy minerals, vitamins, and fiber.

There is another important point about whole grains in general, and pasta in particular. Pasta forms a good carbohydrate base for your meal. Most pasta carbohydrate is the preferred complex form. I will explain the importance of complex carbohydrates in a future article. For now, let’s think about the rest of our pasta meal.

Most current healthy nutrition guides emphasize switching from unhealthy refined cereals to unrefined whole grains. So a switch to whole wheat pasta is good, but there’s more. Whilst you’re improving the healthiness of your pasta, an alkaline diet can help even more, if you look at the sauce.

Vegetable sauces for pasta are nice, but if you want meat or seafood, a pasta meal can still be alkaline. Be sure to make the sauce with three times as many calories from plants as calories from animals. There are lots of ingredients near the top of the most alkaline foods list that make excellent sauces for pasta. If you are not sure if your favorite pasta meal is alkaline forming, please share the recipe with me in the feedback form below. I’ll analyze it for you, and I might even add some tips for making it a better part of your alkaline diet.

Alkaline Pasta List

The alkaline pasta list shows key foods from the Cereal Grains and Pasta food group in order of decreasing alkalinity. As you can see, all these foods are acidic, but I hope that you understand this is still important in your overall alkaline diet.

To be successful, your diet should acknowledge other nutrients, and not only consider acid-alkaline balance. As you click the headings in the table, you can focus on other important nutrients. Repeat clicking reverses the sequence.

Alkaline Pasta List Review

I hope you are not disappointed to see there is no alkaline pasta. That must not stop you including pasta in your alkaline diet.

Nobody eats pasta by itself. The other ingredients in your pasta meal are fundamental to the basic principles of healthy alkaline diets. Balance essential acidic foods with a greater quantity of alkaline foods. Make wholemeal pasta an essential part of your healthy diet by smothering it in alkaline pasta sauce.

Pasta Nutrition Research

Following my review of pasta in an alkaline diet, I’m looking at wider aspects of pasta nutrition and how it affects any diseases and general wellbeing. Also, pasta is adopting a different role as scientists investigate the benefits of making pasta with non-traditional flours. At the moment, I’m looking at 5 studies of different aspects of pasta[1-5]. But I’m also interested in your specific concerns about pasta consumption…
