A healthy base excess diet should consist of 70 to 80 percent alkaline foods and 20 to 30 percent acidifying foods. Since there are good and bad acid-forming foods, it is necessary to know the difference. Because the bad acidifiers should be avoided consistently. It is not always easy to put the right balance between basic and acid-forming foods into everyday life. Therefore, use our acid-base table, which will help you in the optimal composition of your meals.

The table – Basic and acid foods
Our acid-base table lists almost all basic and all acid-forming foods used in today’s diet. So, if you want to feed on the overbased nutritional guidelines, then this table will help you to choose the right and healthy foods.
What is the difference between basic diet and excess diet?
You may be wondering why we are always talking about a base excess rather than a basic diet. This is simply because we do not recommend a basic diet as a long-term diet:
- The purely basic nutrition is wonderfully suitable for a detoxification treatment , for the base fast or as an accompaniment to a colon cleansing , detoxification or deacidification . The basic diet is therefore rather something for short-term actions, eg. For a period of four to twelve weeks. As a permanent optimal diet, however, we consider the surplus base diet to be much more meaningful, workable and, in the long term, healthier.
- The overbased diet consists not only of basic foods, but also of acid-forming foods. Because not all acid-forming foods are bad and unhealthy. Of course, the bad and unhealthy acidifiers are not part of a surplus diet. The good acidifiers, however, should regularly enrich and complement the meals.
Consequently, it is not only important to be able to distinguish the basic from the acid-forming foods, but also to be able to differentiate the good acid-forming and the bad acid-forming foods. Our table will help you!
