Alkaline Diet with BERTRAND
Due to the many requests we’ve gotten in Support, we’ve looked into whether BERTRAND is suitable in alkaline diets. Here we’ll take a look at the individual ingredients and testing at our INTERTEK laboratory for food technology.
What is an alkaline diet?
An alkaline diet supplies humans with easily absorbed basic minerals as well as all the body’s required nutrients and vital substances. At the same time, it should spare the body from acid metabolic residue resulting from digestion. This brings the acid-alkaline ratio into balance for a proper and healthy pH value in all areas of the body. There is, however, as of yet no scientifically recognized proof of hyperacidity.
Laboratory tests for pH values
Laboratory tests on our products have determined them largely to have neutral pH values. Laboratory test at INTERTEK – pH value of vegan variety Laboratory test at INTERTEK – pH value of classic variety Laboratory test at INTERTEK – pH value of active variety In an alkaline diet, however, the pH values of foods are mostly excluded. You’ll find more on that in this article.
Is BERTRAND suitable for an alkaline diet?
In an alkaline diet, food is divided into categories based on whether they are more alkaline-forming or acid-forming. In addition, there is a division between good and bad acid-forming foods. Our ingredients fall into these categories as follows:
Almonds, walnuts, locust bean gum, sea buckthron berries, nutritional yeast, algae (porphyra, chlorella, lithothamnium), mushrooms (Agaricus bisporus), lemon peel extract, guava extract, basil leaf extract
Whole oats, flax seed, sunflower seeds, agave powder, coconut, rice protein
Powdered milk, milk protein powder
The ingredients in our vegan variety make our product highly suitable for integration into an alkaline diet. It is also possible to integrate our classic and active varieties, however these should be limited to individual meals due to the milk products they contain.
