Acid/Alkaline Food Charts

Acid / Alkaline Balance Food Charts

 

      When foods are broken down, they leave certain chemical /metallic residues (sometimes called a noncombustible "ash"), which when combined with body fluids, yield either acid or alkaline solutions

 

         Some foods are "acid-forming"

         Some are "alkaline-forming."

 

Tables show dietary effects on acid-base balance

Data from 2004 IPEV Institute for Prevention and Nutrition

 

      Food Group Tables (showing PRAL Values*):

 

 

      *PRAL value (Potential renal acid load in mEq /100g)

 

-       Foodstuffs with a negative PRAL value exert an alkaline effect;

 

-       Foodstuffs with a positive PRAL value an acidic effect – It is the sulphur in the concentrated protein of meat, fish, eggs and hard cheese, and phosphorous in meat and soft drinks that makes these foods so acidic.

 

-       Foodstuffs with a 0.0 PRAL value have a neutral effect.
