Acid-Alkaline Dark Green Vegetables PRAL List

Dark green vegetables are an important foundation for good diets. So it’s good to see they are all alkalizing. However, you can make big changes by switching from near-neutral broccoli. How about beet greens with around 40 times more PRAL alkalinity?

Before you use this PRAL Dark Green Vegetables List, you must understand and agree to PRAL Food Lists Principles

Acid-Alkaline Dark Green Vegetables PRAL List

Note this list is for all dark green vegetables except lettuce.

I list the vegetables with the lowest PRAL score first. Because these have the lowest acid load. So the most alkalizing foods show first. But you can click the PRAL food table headings to change sort order.

For the Dark Green Vegetables food category, the average PRAL values are -5.18 per 100 g and -13.47 per 100 calories. To put this in context, compare with other vegetables in the Food Category List.

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 dark green vegetables 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.

For 2022 and beyond, I’m introducing new lists to match the way that USDA database foods relate to Dietary Guidelines. So please see Dark-Green Vegetables. Then use the feedback links at the end of that page to let me know your thoughts on those new food lists.
