Full Answer

Greenopedia's chart categorizes 144 different foods by degree of alkalinity. Four separate columns list foods that are highly alkaline, moderately alkaline, low alkaline and very low alkaline. List items are ordered alphabetically and include fruits, grains, spices, nuts and condiments.

The chart found on The AAA Diet website lists items by food group. These groups include meat and meat products, legumes, sweets, grains and beverages. Each list item includes a PRAL score indicating whether the food is acidic or alkaline and to what degree. Each food group's average PRAL score is indicated at the top of the food group's listing. The list categorizes both natural and processed foods.

Dr. Oz provides a list of 25 foods that promote alkalinity in the body. The foods are ordered from most neutral to most alkaline-promoting. The list begins with draft beer, ends with raisins and includes various fruits, vegetables and beverages in between. A link to an alkaline-promoting meal plan can be found near the bottom of the list.
