BASE FORMING, ACID-FORMING FOODS.
Besides grouping our foods under the headings of six foodstuffs, we classify them as base forming and acid forming. These terms do not refer to the taste of food but rather to the use of foods in the body. Foods are acid-forming or base forming according to the ash that is left after they are digested and utilized by the body. The body needs both types of foods so that one counteracts the other, preserving neutrality that is essential for health.
Base-forming foods are milk, milk-products, fruits, and vegetables, except prunes, plums, cranberries and corn.
Acid-forming foods are meat, fish, egg, grains, prunes, plums, cranberries, and corn.
