ACID-FORMING & ALKALINE-FORMING FOODS

    It must be noted that because a food is acid it is no indication that it REMAINS acid in the body.  It can turn alkaline.  Honey and raw sugars produce alkaline ash, but because of a high concentrate of sugar become acid-formers.  Those fruits marked with an * should not be eaten with other foods.  They are acid externally but alkaline internally.
