Least to Most Acid-Forming Food List
Lower down foods (even within single categories) become more acid-forming (usually more
difficult to digest), i.e. less alkaline
LEAST ACID-FORMING (MOST ALKALINE): The best foods, also good for “graduated
fasting”
Lemon/calamansi water with a little salt
Herb tea, Apple cider vinegar
Coconut water
Citric fruit juice, water with little honey
Other fruit juices
Vegetable juice
Lactobacteria drinks without milk
Citric fruits
Juicy fruits
All other fruits including super-ripe banana (except starchy fruits below)
Green leafy vegetables, sea vegetables, sprouts, spices
All other vegetables (except starchy veggies in next category, & 3 more listed at bottom of chart)
Extra-virgin oil produced without heat friction
Raw juicy young sweet corn & young peas
SLIGHTLY ACID-FORMING (SEMI-ALKALINE): Good for healthy people
Small amount of yogurt just for lactobacteria (among dairy, best is goat’s milk yogurt)
Legume/nut milk
Black-strap molasses
Starchy vegetables/fruits (potato, casava, jackfruit, “normal” (not super-ripe) banana)
Fresh tofu
Nuts (in small quantity, blended or very well-chewed, not fried – best soaked)
SEMI-ACID-FORMING: Good for healthy people in smaller quantity
Buckwheat (which is an herb, not a grain)
Whole grains #1: millet, quinoa, kamut, amaranth
Other whole grains (including 100% wholegrain bread/rice/noodles, corn, oats, barley)
Legumes (e.g. mung beans, lentils, soya, peanuts)
ACID-FORMING: A little bit is not too bad for healthy people
Mildly sautéed vegetables (better use coconut oil)
Raw sugar
Refined grains (including white bread, white rice, white noodles), veggie-meat
Refined sugar, tea, coffee, most non-fried vegetarian junk foods
EXTREMELY ACID-FORMING: Eliminate or minimize
Vegetarian deep-fried foods
Fish
Poultry
Meat
Eggs
Notes: 1) Dairy products vary according to personal situation – for some it is good, for some it is
bad. 2) Refined sugar, tea & coffee are not difficult to digest, but if one consumes them liberally
then they are very acid-forming, create stress, and also rob the body of needed nutrients.
3) Onion, garlic and mushroom are not difficult to digest, but they heat up the lower glands, and
thus very much disturb the emotions.
