A first objective of the present study was to estimate the acid-base balance of the food intake in vegetarians and non-vegetarians. A second objective was to evaluate if additional input of specific food items on the existing potential renal acid load (PRAL) list was necessary for the comparison of the two dietary patterns. Thirty vegetarians between the age of 18 and 30 years were matched for sex, age and BMI with 30 non-vegetarians. Based on the 3-days food diaries the acid-base status of the… 
Dietary potential renal Acid load in venezuelan children.
TLDR
The diet of the children studied was characterized by an excessive acid load with the risk for the generation of systemic acidosis and its metabolic consequences, and food groups with the highest unbalance were meat and dairy products for excessive intake and fruits and vegetables regarding low intake.
The Design, Development and Evaluation of the Vegetarian Lifestyle Index on Dietary Patterns among Vegetarians and Non-Vegetarians
TLDR
The VLI provides a useful measure of diet and lifestyle adherence to further refine vegetarian food pyramid guidelines and demonstrates that the index has strong discriminant ability across distinct dietary patterns.
Nutritional Status of Flemish Vegetarians Compared with Non-Vegetarians: A Matched Samples Study
TLDR
It is shown that a vegetarian diet can be adequate to sustain the nutritional demands to at least the same degree as that of omnivores.
Dietary pattern analysis: a comparison between matched vegetarian and omnivorous subjects
TLDR
The authors' results indicate a more nutrient dense pattern, closer to the current dietary recommendations for the vegetarians compared to the omnivorous subjects.
Nutrient Intake and Dietary Acid Load of Special Diets in the NHANES: A Descriptive Analysis (2009–2018)
TLDR
Using data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys, DAL and nutrient intake in the most popular special diets in the United States, including weight-loss, low fat, low salt, low sugar, and diabetic diets were quantified.
A Vegan Diet Is Associated with a Significant Reduction in Dietary Acid Load: Post Hoc Analysis of a Randomized Controlled Trial in Healthy Individuals
TLDR
It is suggested that a vegan diet is a potential means to reduce DAL, whereas a meat-rich diet substantially increases the DAL burden.
Examining the Impact of Adherence to a Vegan Diet on Acid-Base Balance in Healthy Adults
TLDR
Since low dietary PRAL scores have been related to improve metabolic parameters, adoption of a vegan diets for several days per week should be explored as a diet strategy to lower disease risk.
Dietary Quality in Vegetarian and Omnivorous Female Students in Germany: A Retrospective Study
TLDR
Examination of the nutrient intake and nutritional quality of vegetarian and omnivorous diets in a group of 61 female students in Germany found higher scores for vegetarians than for omnivores and significant differences in nutrient intakes.
Health aspects, nutrition and physical characteristics in matched samples of institutionalized vegetarian and non-vegetarian elderly (> 65yrs)
TLDR
This study indicates that a vegetarian lifestyle has no negative impact on the health status at older age, and generally shows a similar profile for V and NV concerning dietary intake, blood values, and physical characteristics.
Stability of potential renal acid load.
TLDR
Based on nutrition assessments carried out using three-day dietary records, stability of PRAL over a 10-year time period could not be confirmed, even though no significant difference between mean PRAL and its components over time was found.

TLDR
It is shown that the diet-induced generation of acidity and alkalinity is not only determined by the metabolism (oxidation) of sulfur-containing amino acids and organic acid anions of alkali salts, respectively, but the intestine is also directly involved in the generation of food-derived acid or alkali loads.
Estimation of the renal net acid excretion by adults consuming diets containing variable amounts of protein.
TLDR
Urinary excretion of different minerals and NAE was measured during the last 48 h of each of four separate 5-d diet periods in six healthy adults, suggesting that the calculation model is appropriate to predict the renal NAE from nutrient intake and anthropometric data.

TLDR
An overview of the current concepts of diet influences on acid‐base balance is provided and also focuses on the underlying physiologic and biochemical basis as well as on relevant clinical implications.
Estimated net acid excretion inversely correlates with urine pH in vegans, lacto-ovo vegetarians, and omnivores.
TLDR
Habitual diet and estimated NAE calculations indicate the probable ranking of urine pH by dietary groups, and may be used to determine the likely acid-base status of an individual; EAA calculations were not predictive of urinary pH.
Blood and urine acid–base status of premenopausal omnivorous and vegetarian women
TLDR
It is suggested that the higher protein intake of the omnivores resulted in an increase in urinary total acid excretion, which may explain the higher rate of Ca excretion.
Estimation of net endogenous noncarbonic acid production in humans from diet potassium and protein contents.
TLDR
By considering both the acidifying effect of protein and the alkalinizing effect of potassium, NEAP can be predicted with confidence from the readily available contents of only 2 nutrients in foods.
The acid-base hypothesis: diet and bone in the Framingham Osteoporosis Study
TLDR
Together these results support the role of base forming foods and nutrients in bone maintenance and suggest a balanced diet with ample fruit and vegetables and adequate protein appears to be important to bone mineral density.
Physical fitness and health‐related parameters in vegetarian and omnivorous students
TLDR
The blood profile showed significantly lower vitamin B12 values for the vegetarians compared to the non‐vegetarians but values were within the recommended limits, and physical performance and anthropometric were completely comparable between the two populations.

TLDR
This position paper reviews the current scientific data related to key nutrients for vegetarians including protein, iron, zinc, calcium, vitamin D, riboflavin, vitamin B-12, vitamin A, n-3 fatty acids, and iodine and suggests that a vegetarian, including vegan, diet can meet current recommendations for all of these nutrients.
