Like I mentioned in my previous post What Is pH Balance determining which foods are alkaline forming can be a little tricky because some foods are acidic outside of our body but when we consume them, they are alkaline forming inside our body.
We can’t just assume that an acidic food will make our body more acidic or an alkaline food will make our body more alkaline.
So how do we know what does what?
The general rule of thumb is that most Fruits and Vegetables are alkaline forming and almost everything else is acid forming.
After researching a bunch of websites and books, I’ve put together the following list of the top 10 Most Alkaline Forming Vegetables and Fruits.
