Dips, gravies, and sauces include a very wide range of different ingredients. Both acid-forming and alkalizing. So it’s not surprising that the average for the category is near neutral. But within the category those differing ingredients generate a corresponding wide range of PRAL acidity and alkalinity values.
Before you use this PRAL Dips, Gravies, Other Sauces List, you must understand and agree to PRAL Food Lists Principles
Acid-Alkaline Dips, Gravies, Other Sauces List
I list dips with the lowest PRAL index first. Because these have the highest alkaline load. So the most alkalizing sauces show first. But you can click the food table headings to change sort order.
For the dip category, the average PRAL values are 0.75 per 100 grams and -0.02 per 100 calories. To put this in context, compare with other condiments and sauces in the Food Category List.
Your Alkaline Dips, Gravies, Other Sauces
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 sauces 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.
