alkaline food list of fruits and vegetablesThere is many a different alkaline food list floating around on the internet on various different sites, most of which are erroneous and not easy to read or easily see what are alkaline forming foods and acidic foods.

After years of research, working in the health service and reading all of the leading books in the alkaline diet field – including Dr Robert Young’s ‘The pH Miracle’ and Christopher Vasey’s ‘The Acid Alkaline Diet for Optimum Health’ – I have come up with a comprehensive alkaline food list, that you can download and print for your reference.

Easily Follow the Alkaline Diet With Our Alkaline Food List

Here is the alkaline foods list, with neutral and acidic foods listed too. You can also download the PDF version below and save on your computer for printing. Put this list on your fridge door and take shopping, for easy reference.

For optimum health, it is recommended that your diet consists of the following proportions, although any shifts in diet towards more alkaline foods are good, no matter how small:

70% Alkaline Foods

    About 35 years ago I re flux had gotten so bad I was ready to go to hospital. We were talking at work about this very thing so next day I went and got some vinegar look like just plain vinegar to me.. Started taking 2 teaspoons in morning very other day, did this for 2 weeks. Stop for 1 week a little re-flux was still there so started vinegar again for 1 week. Stop at 1 week and it has very came back. Vinegar is some rough stuff going down just hold breath and swallow.

    I am having a major issue with reflux. No matter what I eat right now, it is painful. I have check sites for foods to eat for help with reflux and some of the foods here are on the not to eat list. Like tomatoes; they can cause reflux and say they are very acidic. I’m getting very confused on the foods. I don’t like to take meds, but I did go buy a generic OTC Zantax, but it doesn’t seem to be working. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
