Is Ka’Chava acidic or alkaline?

Ka’Chava contains a variety of ingredients that are considered alkaline (many of the veggies and greens) and a variety of ingredients considered acidic (some of the fruits and grains). But the overall product is not considered acidic when combined with water.

But it’s important to note: Alkalinity and acidity do not necessarily equate to "good" and “bad” when it comes to food. Many experts agree that our bodies do a good job of keeping our blood pH where it needs to be, and that foods don’t have a significant impact on this.

And while it’s true that alkaline foods like leafy greens, sprouts, chlorella, and avocados provide our bodies with essential vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals that support overall health, it’s also true that many plant-based acidic foods (think: acai, maqui berry, camu camu, oranges, and lemon) do the very same.

Typically, the only time people will run into health problems as a result of eating acidic foods is when these acidic foods include things like excessive refined carbs or low-quality animal products. Plants, in all their forms, seem to be pretty great.
