Acid-Alkaline Oils and Fats Food Nutrition List

Alkaline Oils & Fats Update

I’m moving nutrition 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 oils. Or start from the new Food Groups Index (DGA Food Group 6: Oils).

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

Individual Oils & Fats Science

Where I find studies about the effects of oil and fat on health and wellbeing, I will summarize them. Including articles on the effects of almond oil, butter, canola oil, corn oil, margarine, mayonnaise, olive oil, palm oil, ranch dressing, and vegetable oil. So please let me know if you have special interest in any of these foods. Because that helps me prioritize my research.

Acid-Alkaline Oils and Fats

I’ve retired the old format for Alkaline Oils & Fats List. But the original list is available as a free Alkaline Oils & Fats 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 oil and fat consumption. In particular, you can now compare PRAL values per 100 calories. So here are two examples from opposite ends of the range…

Most Acidic Oils & Fats

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

  • 4 ┈ Salad dressing, blue or Roquefort cheese, low calorie
  • 4 ┈ Salad dressing, Italian dressing, fat-free
  • 2 ┈ Creamy dressing, made with sour cream and/or buttermilk and oil, reduced calorie, cholesterol-free

Mediterranean Olive Oil Acid or Alkaline?
Remember: these tables help you make better food choices by estimating acid load. But the only way to confirm they are having the desired effect is by measuring the pH (acidity/alkalinity) of your urine. So start this simple daily process using widely available pH test strips or meters.
