Butter and animal fats are not significant for alkaline diets. Because their kidney load is mostly near-neutral. Also, butter shouldn’t be eaten enough to make a large difference to overall acid load. Having said that, if you are a stickler for micromanaging your diet then switching to honey butter will improve PRAL alkalinity.
Before you use this PRAL Butter and Animal Fats List, you must understand and agree to PRAL Food Lists Principles
Acid-Alkaline Butter and Animal Fats List
I list butter with the lowest PRAL index first. Because these have the highest alkaline load. So the most alkalizing fats show first. But you can click the food table headings to change sort order.
For the butter category, the average PRAL values are 0.40 per 100 grams and 0.06 per 100 calories. To put this in context, compare with other fats and oils in the Food Category List.
Your Alkaline Butter and Animal Fats
Remember, factors such as growing conditions, variety, and preparation methods affect all food nutrients. USDA database values are an average of many samples. So your PRAL values for butter will vary from day to day. But they are always an estimate of actual acid load on your kidneys. Which I explain more in the notes about PRAL principles on the category list page.
