As a grain, oatmeal is acid forming. Which means it creates a positive acid load on your kidneys. However, while this is true of oatmeal made with plain water, we often use oats as a base for other meals. Even if that is simply adding fruit to your breakfast. So in this oatmeal food list, you will see how adding ingredients to oatmeal increases or decreases the acid load. With a view to eating oats-based meals that improve your total PRAL alkalinity score.

Before you use this PRAL Oatmeal List, you must understand and agree to PRAL Food Lists Principles
Acid-Alkaline Oatmeal List
I list oatmeal dishes with the lowest PRAL index first. Because these have the lowest acid load. So the most alkalizing foods show first. But you can click the food table headings to change sort order.
For the oatmeal food category, the average PRAL values are 0.77 per 100 g and 0.89 per 100 calories. To put this in context, compare with other grains in the Food Category List.
Your Alkaline Oatmeal
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 oats 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.
