Most milk substitutes are alkalizing. But there are two reasons to be careful when you are planning an alkaline diet incorporating these drinks:
- A few milk substitutes are acid-forming.
- The top alkaline milk substitutes are much more alkalizing than others. Especially when comparing PRAL per calorie.
Before you use this PRAL Milk Substitutes List, you must understand and agree to PRAL Food Lists Principles
Acid-Alkaline Milk Substitutes List
I list milk substitutes 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 milk substitutes category, the average PRAL values are -2.20 per 100 grams and -4.95 per 100 calories. To put this in context, compare with other dairy foods in the Food Category List.
Your Alkaline Milk Substitutes
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 milk substitutes 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.
