Acid-Alkaline Breakfast Cereals List

Alkaline Cereals Update

I’m moving nutrition lists to ALKAscore. Where I’m also reconfiguring them to match the latest food groups. Currently, the nearest list to this Foodary original is actually 3 lists. Because ALKAscore’s Acid-Alkaline Cereals are split into `high sugar cereals`, `low sugar cereals`, and `cereal bars`. But that will change soon, as I organize cereals into whole grain and refined grain subgroups. So it’s best to search for the latest alkaline cereals information. Or start from the new Food Groups Index (DGA Food Group 3: Grains).

Pending completion, I’m retaining this page as a progress record. So you can follow the transition from all the lists included in my Basic Acid Alkaline Food Chart Introduction.

Here on Foodary, I’m focusing on the health benefits of cereals. So I’ll be summarizing facts about cereals in general. Including acid-forming vs alkalizing cereals. As well as satisfying Foodary visitors search for facts and FAQs about specific cereals. Including: all bran, bran buds, cheerios, corn flakes, cream of wheat, French toast, granola, grape nuts, grits, oatmeal, oats, porridge, Rice Krispies, Weetabix.

Alongside, I’ll add information for related foods. Including fortified cereals and fiber. Also, common additions to breakfast cereals. Such as cinnamon, honey, nuts, and raisins.

Acid-Alkaline Breakfast Cereals List

I’ve retired the old format for Acid-Alkaline Breakfast Cereals List. But the original list is available as an Alkaline Cereals Spreadsheet. Or, you will find it in the free resources listed in your dashboard if you subscribe to my free Foodary Nexus Newsletter…

Early feedback from the spreadsheets has prompted me to upgrade them. Because the original format was great for identifying high acid load cereals. Then switching to high alkaline cereals. But the spreadsheet format allows us to do much more.

So I’ve added columns that allow you to easily make better alkaline cereal choices. Significantly, I’ve added a column for PRAL values per 100 calories. And to emphasize the fact that PRAL values are average estimates, I’ve dropped the decimal points from that new column. Hopefully that will encourage you to look for changes that lower your PRAL score by at least 2 points per change. Remember, you must plan for some acid forming foods. Just ensure that your total daily PRAL score is negative.

One benefit from my PRAL spreadsheets upgrade is that it’s now easy to see the most acidic and the most alkaline cereals. So here are a couple of significant lists for you…

Top 10 Acidic Breakfast Cereals

These cereals are listed with the highest acid load first. Where the first number in the list is PRAL value per 100 calorie serving:

  • 7 ┈ Cereals ready-to-eat, WAFFELOS
  • 7 ┈ Cereals ready-to-eat, wheat germ, toasted, plain

Your Next Steps

As noted, this is now a progress page to monitor the transition from old Foodary tables. So I recommend using search or the links above to get the latest information about alkaline cereals.

This is true. But with the improvements to the spreadsheets, I recommend that you consider using the Alkaline Cereals Spreadsheet to make better alkaline cereal choices today.

Start by sorting the spreadsheet by the first column. Then find your current cereal choices. Finally, look for alternatives with a lower PRAL score. Now I say `finally`. But the reality is that there are probably many ways to use these alkaline food spreadsheets to lower your acid load. So we can do much more together.

Please tell me how you use the Alkaline Cereal Spreadsheet to analyze and plan your breakfast cereal consumption. Then I might make more improvements to the spreadsheets. But also tell me about any difficulties you encounter. Because I can help you use the spreadsheet. Also, I can improve instructions for other users.

  1. Suzanne on

    This is very interesting and useful information, as i am trying to raise my alkalinity. I am a bit confused at the high alkaline value for Total Raisin Bran, because I thought most all grains are very acidic. Could you help me out with this?

    • Hi Suzanne,

      The reason is that the Total range has a lot of additives. There is a lot of added calcium in Total Raisin Bran, and this has a significant effect on alkalinity. I will be adding more notes on how I calculate alkalinity and acidity in these PRAL pages.

  2. Hello. I don’t quite understand the negative numbers on the alkaline side. Can you please explain? I’m new to this. Thank you

    • Hi Tina,

      Great to hear from you. It’s a tricky subject, which is why I start with an introduction that explains the charts.

      Why not read that explanation first, then explain the bit you don’t understand. Together we can make it better.

      The alkaline food chart introduction is the best place to discuss now these charts work.
