Alkaline Foods List

Detailed and Comprehensive Acid Alkaline Foods Chart pH Ratings

5 Steps to Boost Your Health & Body with Our Alkaline Foods Chart

1) When you are preparing the foods for a meal, look at a particular category of the foods and select more foods in the alkaline category.

2) This alkaline food chart is only accurate for certain state of the foods. For example, cooked lettuce has a different pH value compared to a boiled lettuce.

3) The food chart is based on a number of acid alkaline food chart, nutritionists, and doctors. If you find a conflict with other alkaline food charts, sign up for our newsletters you’ll discover the alkaline principles behind these differences.

4) This alkaline food chart is based on the “residue” or “ash” of the foods after it has been digested in the stomach. That is why you will find lemon is categorized under alkaline and not acidic.

    1. I have been sprinkling just a little baking soda on my coffee before it starts brewing and I also sprinkle a little on some of the foods that I know are acidic, doesn’t the baking soda neutralize the acid? either way the baking soda does no harm

  1. THANKS SO MUCH for this GREAT information !

    It would be really nice, if the list could be in poster/flyer form….
    I am sure other viewers would agree

  2. I am making homade kefir, I used almond milk which I see is OK, but I want to use raw or at least organic cows milk. Would that be acidic?

  3. Was just diagnosed with gastritis or bleeding ulcers – wondering if it’s diet… have never had stomach problems before this.
    I’ve quite coffee and tea and now looking towards a better diet… right course?@all

  4. Excellent info! Thank-you!!

    That said, I did notice an error in the food chart (printable version). In the Meat/Poultry/Fish section the second to last line and third to last are mixed up. The rabbit picture is labeled as “Sardines” and the row that should have sardines, venison, shrimp is omitted, with the next page having just Tuna on it.

  5. My test came up highly acidic??? Been taking hcl with pepsin, digestive enzymes, unpasteurized saurkraut for 2.5 months. Most people take high doses of hcl but I did not go this route. Naturopath told me not to, my dose was only 2 capsules per meal. That said my acid is low.

  6. This does not leave very much to eat that is not acidic or alkaline, even as far as fruits and vegetables go, now does it? Might be easier to leave a what is good for you list. Nothing much.

  7. Thank you so much for the information. I’ve really been killing myself with all manner of foods. believe me, i am taking my health and that of my finace to the next level.

  8. Do we need some of both alkaline & acidic foods? I am trying to lose weight should I cut out acidic foods? I found the list of food & vegetables helps me a lot. Should I eat less of acidic foods and more of the alkaline foods?

  9. Almost everything I eat is alkaline.
    With the exception of Brown Rice, brown rice syrup and maple syrup, and soy sauce/tamari and miso I eat mostly fruits , veggies, seeds and nuts.

  10. Who ow, thanks for the information, really appreciate, would help as I am having a problem with too much acid in my tummy

  11. Having a multitude of problems, stomach, bowel, weight gain etc. Also, a main pain is lack of sleep. I’ll take any help I can get as I’m miserable, physically and mentally. Interesting chart, thanks for letting me see it.

  12. This is the first instruction of Acidic to Alkaline Foods that I have been made aware of. Thank you so much for this information, this is a great aid.

  13. It’s quite informative and educative. My question is does it mean that diary,meat, poultry and fish categories are all acidic and if that is established, how do one eat them especially people with kidney stone like me for instance having kidney stone of 0.4cm by 0.5cm. Thanks.

  14. I think the body knows what to do with the foods we consume. No one food is any better than any other food. This acid-base balance method is best done by our bodies; our organs, enzymes, cell organelles are there for a reason–they know how to keep our bodies in the narrow pH range much, much better than what we know and eat at random. Why do you think there are so many types of diets out there? We don’t quite know what we do. Leave it alone!

  15. Hi can someone please answer me: How are we to eat all these healthy alkaline vegetables if once we cook them they become acidic??? apart from eating them raw and cold??

  16. no way do I believe that oranges, lemons and limes are alkaline. Those are all very acidic fruits. what kind of a chart is this?????

  17. Well I certainly won’t be bothering with this, most of the foods I enjoy (meat) is highly acidic. I think this whole thing is a just a rip off to con gullible people into purchasing whatever it is you are selling to bring their acid levels down. Especially as you included drugs and cigarettes as acidic, what kind of drugs? Heroin, Amphetamine or life saving drugs like insulin?

    Lost me with that one.
