Alkalising Foods


The following chart provides information showing the contribution of various foods to the acidifying of the body fluids, and ultimately to the urine, saliva and blood. In general, it is important to eat a diet that contains foods from both sides of the chart. Allergic reactions tend to produce acids in the body. The presence of high acidity indicates that more of your foods should be selected from the alkalising group. Ideally 75% of the diet should be alkalising and 25% acidifying.
