Fruits That Are Alkaline Producing

Save

Many nutritionists say the human body should be slightly alkaline. This is measured by pH. Eating about 80 percent alkaline foods boosts the immune system and makes digestion more efficient. But many foods in a typical American diet are acid-producing. Fresh fruits are highly alkaline. A proper pH balance can be reached by eating alkaline-producing fruit.

Figs

  • Figs are the most alkaline-producing fruit. One oz.of figs has an alkalinity of 30. They can be eaten raw, cooked or dried. They can also be juiced. Because figs act as a laxative, it is advised not to eat too many at a time.

Apricots

Raisins

Dates

  • Dates are also quite alkaline. One oz. has an alkalinity of 3. For a delicious snack with dates, slice the date open and remove the pit. Spoon feta cheese inside, or if you prefer, crushed almonds. Top with lemon.
