What are the typical pH levels and phosphorus content in cheese?


It's worthwhile to note that pH values of a food are determined in a laboratory, rather than after you eat them. What may be more important than the food's laboratory pH... (see this below) ...

In general, the softer the cheese, the lower the phosphorus content. Soft cheeses include cottage cheese and ricotta cheese. Harder cheeses such as cheddar and Swiss have more phosphorus. The actual phosphorus content of a few representative cheeses is listed below.
The pH value of cheese varies not only among types of cheese, but also between batches of the same variety. Typically, the pH of cheese ranges from 5.1 to 5.9 with a few exceptions such as Camembert which has a pH of 7.44.

What is Phosphorus?


Phosphorus is a mineral naturally found in food. The body binds phosphorus with calcium to form bones and teeth. It is also used in the body's production of energy. Major whole food sources of phosphorus include cheese, milk, meats, whole grains, legumes and nuts.

Processed foods, especially soft drinks, have a different form of phosphorus that is best avoided,

as research indicates it may draw calcium out of the bones and cause it to be excreted.

What is pH?


The pH value of a substance is a measure of acidity or alkalinity. It is measured on a scale of 1-14. For instance, lemon juice, which is acidic, has a very low pH of 2.3 while baking soda, which is alkaline, has a high pH of 8.0.


Distilled water has a neutral pH of 7.0.

Fluids in the body have carefully-regulated pH ranges.

For example,

the pH of blood in our arteries is kept within a 7.35-7.45 range."


Reason: this range only applies to arterial blood. For some fluids, like urine, the pH ranges from 4.5-8.0. The body works hard to keep the pH in this tight range for optimum health.
How is Body pH Controlled?
Electrolytes (the minerals sodium, potassium, chloride and to some extent calcium and magnesium) affect a person's acid-base balance. Eating a diet rich in the World's Healthiest Foods will ensure that you have plenty of electrolytes-and your body takes care of the rest. Diseases that interfere with kidney and lung function can alter the blood pH, causing acidosis or alkalosis. When this happens, medical attention may be necessary to remove the primary cause of the problem and then to support the lungs and kidneys. Diabetes complications and starvation can also affect pH, causing an acidic condition which can eventually lead to coma and death if not corrected.
Why Might the Phosphorus Content and pH Value of a Food be Important?
In the mouth, pH plays a role in tooth decay. Bacteria in the mouth feed upon sugars and starch residue, producing acid in the process. The acid destroys tooth enamel, dissolving the calcium and phosphorus, which over time can cause cavities. To stop this from happening, the pH level in the mouth needs to be 5.5 or higher. Brushing your teeth can help achieve the proper pH. Eating a bit of cheese can also raise the pH favourably, although we don't recommend substituting cheese for your toothbrush-cheese does other things besides alter pH.
Kidney stone formation can be affected by the pH of urine in people who have a history of forming stones. If you've had kidney stones that contained phosphorus, a low-phosphorus diet may have been recommended, as well as a diet that produces "acid ash." Foods that produce "acid ash" include cheese as well as whole grains, meat, eggs, cranberries, prunes and plums. Struvite stones (those that contain the compound called magnesium ammonium phosphate) also call for a diet low in phosphorus and one that produces an acid ash.
Sometimes urinary urgency can be caused by acidic foods, in which case your health care provider may suggest that you avoid foods that are low in acid-therefore you would choose ones with a higher pH level.
For More Information?
It's worthwhile to note that pH values of a food are determined in a laboratory, rather than after you eat them. What may be more important than the food's laboratory pH value is whether the food, once inside your body, creates more of an acidic or alkaline state; this is difficult to predict because of individual variablity, and it is also a complicated issue that is controversial in scientific research. If you would like to read more about this issue, from a perspective that considers both western science and eastern philosophy, you might be interested in reading Herman Aihara's Acid and Alkaline, (published by the George Ohsawa Macrobiotic Foundation in Oroville, California in 1980) which is part of the macrobiotic diet literature published by the George Ohsawa Macrobiotic Foundation.

Blood test shows

if breast cancer therapy is working and allow treatment to be tailored to each individual sufferer The revolutionary new scanner that can spot cancer in SECONDS.


The most common were ice cream, yogurts, cheese, full-fat lattes and hot chocolates.
The scientists found that those who ate just one portion of one of these products a day were 50 per cent more likely to die from the illness within 12 years. Scientists suspect that the hormone oestrogen found in milk and other dairy foods such as ice cream encourages tumour growth
Scientists

suspect that the hormone oestrogen found in milk and other dairy foods such as ice cream encourages tumour growth.


They point out that most milk consumed in Britain and the U.S. comes from pregnant cows and is rich in the hormone oestrogen.

This is known to trigger tumour growth and there are particularly high levels in full-fat dairy foods.


In fact women who ate one portion of full-fat dairy a day were 64 per cent more likely to die from any cause - not just breast cancer.
Dr Bette Caan, who led the research said: 'High-fat dairy is generally not recommended as part of a healthy diet.
'Switching to low-fat dairy is an easy thing to modify.'
Many women who have just been diagnosed with breast cancer ask their doctor whether they should change their diet.

The research is the first to show such a strong link between dairy products and breast cancer.


Susan Kutner, chair Kaiser Permanente Northern California Regional Breast Care Task Force, said: 'Women have been clamouring for this type of information.

'They're asking us, 'Tell me what I should eat?' With this information, we can be more specific

about recommending low-fat dairy products.'
Sally Greenbrook, Senior Policy Officer at Breakthrough Breast Cancer, said: 'This study specifically looks at women who have already been diagnosed with breast cancer and how low or high fat dairy products may affect them.
'Any women who have had breast cancer and are concerned about their diet should discuss this with their doctors.
'For a number of health reasons it's advisable that all women should follow a healthy balanced diet. It helps you to maintain a healthy weight which, together with good practices such as lower alcohol intake and regular physical activity, can help to reduce your breast cancer risk and improve overall well-being.

'There are many risk factors for breast cancer, not just diet.'
There is no evidence of a link between hormone replacement therapy and breast cancer, research published in the British Medical Journal suggests.
The study at the University of Cape Town Medical School looked at HRT use and the incidence of breast cancer in 11 countries. It found that the benefits of the drug in alleviating menopause symptoms outweigh any possible risks.

"Goat's milk is a very good source of calcium and the amino acid tryptophan. It is also a good source of protein, phosphorus, riboflavin (vitamin B2) and potassium. Perhaps the greatest benefit of goat's milk, however, is that some people who cannot tolerate cow's milk are able to drink goat's milk without any problems. It is not clear from scientific research studies exactly why some people can better tolerate goat's milk. Some initial studies suggested that specific proteins known to cause allergic reactions may have been present in cow's milk in significant quantities yet largely absent in goat's milk. The alpha-casein proteins, including alpha s1-casein, and the beta-casein proteins were both considered in this regard. However, more recent studies suggest that the genetic wiring for these casein proteins is highly variable in both cows and goats and that more study is needed to determine the exact role these proteins might play in the tolerability of goat's milk versus cow's milk. Other research has found some anti-inflammatory compounds (short-chain sugar molecules called oligosaccharides) to be present in goat's milk. These oligosaccharides may make goat's milk easier to digest, especially in the case of compromised intestinal function..." See this below.


Goat's Milk?

Other research has found some anti-inflammatory compounds (short-chain sugar molecules called oligosaccharides) to be present in goat's milk. These oligosaccharides may make goat's milk easier to digest, especially in the case of compromised intestinal function. In animal studies, goat's milk has also been shown to enhance the metabolism of both iron and copper, especially when there are problems with absorption of minerals in the digestive tract. These factors and others are likely to play an important role in the tolerability of goat's milk versus cow's milk. Allergy to cow's milk has been found in many people with conditions such as recurrent ear infections, asthma, eczema, and even rheumatoid arthritis. Replacing cow's milk with goat's milk may help to reduce some of the symptoms of these conditions.
Goat's milk can sometimes even be used as a replacement for cow's milk-based infant formulas for infants who have difficulties with dairy products. Unfortunately, goat's milk is lacking in several nutrients that are necessary for growing infants, so parents interested in trying goat's milk instead of cow's milk-based formula for their infants should ask their paediatricians or other qualified healthcare practitioners for recipes and ways to add these important and vital nutrients. For older children and adults, however, goat's milk can be an excellent calcium-rich alternative to cow's milk as, in addition to calcium, it contains many of the same nutrients found in cow's milk.
Calcium?A Mineral for A Lot More than Strong Bones
Goat's milk is a very good source of calcium. Calcium is widely recognized for its role in maintaining the strength and density of bones. In a process known as bone mineralization, calcium and phosphorus join to form calcium phosphate. Calcium phosphate is a major component of the mineral complex (called hydroxyapatite) that gives structure and strength to bones. A cup of goat's milk supplies 32.6% of the daily value for calcium along with 27.0% of the DV for phosphorus. In comparison, a cup of cow's milk provides 29.7% of the DV for calcium and 23.2% of the DV for phosphorus.
Building bone is, however, far from all that calcium does for us. In recent studies, this important mineral has been shown to:
Help protect colon cells from cancer-causing chemicals Help prevent the bone loss that can occur as a result of menopause or certain conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis Help prevent migraine headaches in those who suffer from them Reduce PMS symptoms during the luteal phase (the second half) of the menstrual cycle
Calcium also plays a role in many other vital physiological activities, including blood clotting, nerve conduction, muscle contraction, regulation of enzyme activity, cell membrane function and blood pressure regulation. Because these activities are essential to life, the body utilizes complex regulatory systems to tightly control the amount of calcium in the blood, so that sufficient calcium is always available. As a result, when dietary intake of calcium is too low to maintain adequate blood levels of calcium, calcium stores are drawn out of the bones to maintain normal blood concentrations.
