Acid-Alkaline Pork Products Food Chart
Alkaline Pork 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 pork products. Or start from the new Food Groups Index (DGA Food Group 5: Meat).
Here at Foodary, I’ll continue to investigate how diseases and wellbeing are affected by pork. Both as a group, and for individual pork products.
Individual Pork Products Science
Where I find studies about the effects of pork on health and wellbeing, I will summarize them. Including articles on the effects of bacon, chops, and ham. So please let me know if you have special interest in any of these foods. Because that helps me prioritize my research.
Acid-Alkaline Pork Products Food List
I’ve retired the old format for Alkaline Pork Products List. But the original list is available as a free Alkaline Pork Products Spreadsheet. Or, you will find it in the free resources listed in your dashboard if you subscribe to my free Foodary Nexus Newsletter…

Subscription is free, and your email address is safe - I will never share it with anyone else. I use Gumroad to provide this service, as described at the Foodary Nexus Newsletter Service.
I’ve added extra columns to the spreadsheet to help you make choices about pork consumption. In particular, you can now compare PRAL values per 100 calories. So here are two examples from opposite ends of the range…
10 Most Acidic Pork Products
I’ve listed these pork products with the highest acid load first. Where the first number in the list is PRAL value per 100 calorie serving:
- 13 ┈ Pork, cured, ham — water added, shank, bone-in, separable lean only, unheated
- 13 ┈ Pork, cured, ham — water added, slice, bone-in, separable lean only, unheated
- 13 ┈ Pork, fresh, variety meats and by-products, spleen, cooked, braised
- 12 ┈ Pork, cured, ham — water added, rump, bone-in, separable lean only, unheated
- 12 ┈ Pork, cured, ham with natural juices, slice, boneless, separable lean only, heated, pan-broil
- 12 ┈ Pork, cured, ham with natural juices, whole, boneless, separable lean only, heated, roasted
- 12 ┈ Pork, cured, ham with natural juices, whole, boneless, separable lean and fat, heated, roasted
- 12 ┈ Pork, cured, ham with natural juices, slice, bone-in, separable lean only, unheated
- 12 ┈ Pork, cured, ham with natural juices, slice, boneless, separable lean and fat, heated, pan-broil
- 12 ┈ Pork, fresh, variety meats and by-products, kidneys, cooked, braised
10 Least Acidic Pork Products
Here, I’ve listed pork products with the lowest acid load. However, as a protein-rich food, there are no alkaline pork 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 pork cuts 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 ┈ Pork, bacon, rendered fat, cooked
- 0 ┈ Pork, fresh, variety meats and by-products, leaf fat, raw
- 0 ┈ Pork, fresh, backfat, raw
- 0 ┈ Pork, cured, salt pork, raw
- 0 ┈ Pork, fresh, variety meats and by-products, jowl, raw
- 1 ┈ Pork, fresh, separable fat, raw
- 1 ┈ Pork, cured, separable fat (from ham and arm picnic), unheated
- 1 ┈ Pork, fresh, variety meats and by-products, tail, raw
- 1 ┈ Pork, fresh, belly, raw
- 1 ┈ Pork, cured, ham, separable fat, boneless, unheated
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 pork concerns. In the meantime, you can start by adding notes about what you’ve learned about alkaline pork 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 pork notes linked here, where you can always find them.

Is the 1st item just pork fat cooked. The only one in the list about neutral
Yes, Anthony, it is just fat (Pork, bacon, rendered fat, cooked), with very little nutrient value.
This is my main problem with using the full nutrition database – it includes lots of useless food items.
I’m thinking of relaunching with the reduced set of data that just includes common food items. I’ll decide by the end of this week.
Thank you for your interest in Foodary.
