Alkalizing foods refer to the alkalinity after digestion

Fennel seed is a more alkalizing food than many. In general green vegetables and seeds are alkalizing after digestion while animal and dairy products are more acid forming. The pH of the undigested food is not what is being measured. It is a measurement of the ash/chemicals that are produced during digestion that are measured. Lime and lemon juice are acidic but their affect in digestion turns alkalizing.

A more acidic system may be associated with an increased risk for cancer as cancer cells prefer a more acid environment. During health our bodies are naturally slightly more alkaline than acidic.

Fennel seed is available as a powdered spice. And pomegranate extract of some sort is also available in a capsule form. A capsule would be a small amount compared to a half cup serving of a liquid product but the capsule is dehydrated so it is more concentrated than a liquid juice product.
