Coffee is naturally slightly alkaline. But beware of highly processed coffees. Because additives can distort PRAL estimates. So always read food labels and stick with naturally brewed alkaline coffee.
Before you use this PRAL Coffee List, you must understand and agree to PRAL Food Lists Principles
Acid-Alkaline Coffee List
I list coffee with the lowest PRAL index first. Because these have the lowest acid load. So the most alkalizing drinks show first. But you can click the food table headings to change sort order.
For the coffee category, the average PRAL values are -1.11 per 100 grams. As coffee is naturally a low-calorie drink, I do not include a PRAL per 100 calories column. To put this in context, compare with other nonalcoholic beverages in the Food Category List.
Your Alkaline Coffee
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 coffee 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.
