Top 10 Most Alkaline Foods December 03, 2015 10:00

I thought, a short blog post about most alkalizing foods would be an awesome idea. Pick your favorite foods and always make sure to include them into your daily meals in different forms - salads, freshly pressed juices, soups, sauces etc. 

What are those numbers?

They indicate pH value of the foods (pH stands for 'potential of Hydrogen'). A pH scale ranks from 1 to 14. The middle is 7 as the neutral point. Numbers below 7 indicate acidity which increases as the value decreases. The numbers above 7 means alkalinity. 

It's all measured on the logarithmic scale, meaning that each number, up or down the scale, represents a tenfold difference in value. E. g., a pH 9 alkaline means ten times alkaline as a pH of 8. The same with acid numbers (only different direction).
