OXALATE CONTENT OF FOODS

( Low oxalate diet)

 

Diet for kidney stones



 


Why to control oxalates in food?

 

People suffering from a tendency to develop calcium-oxalate kidney stones should avoid eating high oxalate food.

An oxalate diet needs to limit the ingest of oxalates to 40 o 50 mg a day. High content oxalate food contains more than 10 mg of oxalate per serving. Moderate oxalate food has from 2 to 10 mg per serving. Low oxalate content food has less than 2 mg per serving.

 

Low oxalates diet

 

For a low oxalate diet high content oxalate food should be avoided. Moderate oxalate foods and drinks should be limited to a maximum of two o three servings per day, whereas low oxalate food and drink is not restricted at all in this type of diet. However, there are some foods or drinks included in the low content or moderate content that can cause irritation to some people, because of their acidity, such as coffle or citrus. In this case, we should take them cautiously, till we get used to them.

The following chart shows a classification of many different foods according to their oxalate content.
