Fruits such as oranges and grapefruit and berries such as strawberries can be both acidic and alkalizing depending on ripening. If they are sweet they are alkalizing if they are bitter or sour they are acidifying.

(Modified chart of Dr. Theodore Baroody, Ph.D., N.D.). Your diet should be 80% alkalizing foods and only 20% acidic foods to maintain correct pH balance.

"Diets that are rich in animal foods and low in vegetable foods, typical of industrialized countries, lead to a dietary net acid load that has a negative effect on calcium balance." The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Vol 73, No.1, pg.118
