Ron asked:

I truly love your website, it is very helpful and informative. However, I am confused. Because in your alkaline seeds chart, pumpkin seeds kernels are considered very acidic. But, pumpkin seeds whole considered alkaline. What makes the whole one alkaline, is it the shell? does that mean it has to be eaten with the shell in order to be alkaline?[1]

But did we ever get the right answer? More importantly, does anyone really care about the PRAL value for pumpkin seeds?

Personally, I think that Alkaline Nuts & Seeds chart needs replacing with more information about individual foods. Also alternatives to those foods that help us plan better alkaline diets. But do you think that's the best solution?
