As a protein food, most nuts and seeds are slightly to moderately acidic. But there is a small choice of alkaline nuts. Especially chestnuts which are not only the most alkalizing. But also the lowest in calories.
Before you use this PRAL Nuts and Seeds List, you must understand and agree to PRAL Food Lists Principles
Acid-Alkaline Nuts and Seeds List
I list nuts and seeds 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 nuts and seeds category, the average PRAL values are 6.55 per 100 grams and 1.11 per 100 calories. To put this in context, compare with other protein foods in the Food Category List.
Your Alkaline Nuts and Seeds
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 nuts and seeds 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.
