Are lemons alkaline or acidic? PRAL is a scientific way to measure the positive or negative acid load of a food on the body. The PRAL score for 100 grams (3.5 ounces) of fresh lemon juice is -2.44. According to the PRAL formula, negative numbers are good numbers and indicate the potential alkalinity a food is contributing to the system. The Alkaline Food Chart is great reference for those starting an alkalizing diet to improve their health.
All foods contain both acid-forming minerals and alkaline-forming minerals. What determines the alkaline or acidic affect of a food is how it breaks down during digestion into its component mineral nutrients. After the food has been metabolized, the acidity or alkalinity it contributes to the body will depend on which remaining minerals are most dominant. This is because the actual pH of a food itself, before digestion, has no bearing on the acid-forming or alkaline-forming properties of that same food after digestion.
