Here is a list of Acidifying Foods
When the body is healthy, the pH of the blood, saliva and spinal fluid is 7.4. The pH of saliva is a reflection of the extracellular fluid and available alkaline mineral reserves available in the body. Alkaline minerals include calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, manganese and iron. Alkaline minerals are essential for maintaining health as they are used to buffer and remove acidic waste from the body. This prevents autointoxication from mucoid plaque build-up in the intestines. Most degenerative diseases including cancer, arthritis, tooth decay, kidney stones and gallstones are contributed to excess acidity in the body.
Food is burned and the ash, which contains the mineral content, is mixed with water. The result determines whether it is an alkaline or acid producing food. A high level of acidity in the body generates free radical activity which damages cells. This sets the internal environment for accelerated aging, a loss of vital energy, illnesses and disease.
Over 80% of the U.S. population has too much acid waste collected in their tissues. Alkaline minerals provided through dietary measures are essential for cleansing and creating a healthy internal environment, free from degenerative diseases. The diet should consist of 80% alkalizing foods and 20% acidic producing foods. All acid producing foods must come from healthy food choices that are not processed. Purchase the “PURE, A Fresh Start” e-book for more information, which includes a dietary elimination plan. This is critical for people who have been eating a diet which consists of predominantly processed foods.
One of the keys to optimal health is an adequate supply of minerals. Studies show that organically grown produce has as much as 300% more mineral content than commercially grown produce.

** These foods leave an alkaline ash but have an acidifying effect on the body.
There are several versions of the Acidic and Alkaline Food chart to be found in different books and on the Internet. The following foods are sometimes attributed to the Acidic side of the chart and sometimes to the Alkaline side. Remember, you don't need to adhere strictly to the Alkaline side of the chart, just make sure a good percentage of the foods you eat come from the Alkaline side, approximately 80% alkaline and 20% acid producing.
Cottage Cheese (alkaline when made with raw product)
Green Tea (alkaline when made with pure water)
Herbal Tea (alkaline when made with pure water)
Honey (alkaline when raw, uncooked and unprocessed)
Milk (alkaline, when left in its unpasteurized state and goat milk is more alkalizing)
Nuts (when soaked or sprouted they are alkalizing)
Pumpkin Seeds (when soaked or sprouted are alkalizing)
Quinoa (when soaked and sprouted they are alkalizing)
Soy Products (acid producing when over processed)
Sprouted Seeds (mostly alkalizing)
Squashes (alkalizing when eat in raw form)
