Some nutritionists believe that a person’s diet should be slightly alkaline for optimal health, while others dismiss the theory as bunk. Still, it can be useful to know which foods are acidic and which are alkaline forming in the body.
So what about tomatoes? Are tomatoes acidic or alkaline?
Tomatoes are actually slightly alkaline, and are close to being neutral on the pH scale.
A 7.0 pH level would be exactly neutral, and most tomatoes fall somewhere between 7.0 and 8.0 which makes them slightly alkaline.
