I list sauces with the lowest PRAL index first. Because these have the highest alkaline load. So the most alkalizing sauce shows first. But you can click the food table headings to change sort order.
For the tomato-based sauce category, the average PRAL values are -3.45 per 100 grams and -6.50 per 100 calories. To put this in context, compare with other condiments and sauces in the Food Category List.
