Margarine is not significant for alkaline diets. Firstly, its kidney load is mostly near-neutral. Secondly, margarine isn’t eaten in quantities that make a large difference to overall acid load. Having said that, if you care about micromanaging your diet then you can make small improvements to PRAL alkalinity.
Before you use this PRAL Margarine List, you must understand and agree to PRAL Food Lists Principles
Acid-Alkaline Margarine List
I list margarine with the lowest PRAL index first. Because these have the highest alkaline load. So the most alkalizing foods show first. But you can click the food table headings to change sort order.
For the margarine category, the average PRAL values are -0.07 per 100 grams and -0.05 per 100 calories. To put this in context, compare with other fats and oils in the Food Category List.
Your Alkaline Margarine
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 margarine 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.
