IN YOUR LOW OXALATE LIFESTYLE
Dietary restrictions, especially with oxalate-related nutritional limitations, can hold you back from enjoying a happy, healthy life. Here, you’ll find resources to help you manage your low oxalate diet and live a healthier life.
What is Oxalate?
Oxalate is found in plant-based foods, and is a so-called “anti-nutrient” because it binds with nutrients we need, like calcium and other minerals, making them less available for your body. Oxalate can be found in a wide array of foods especially leafy greens like spinach and kale, as well as potatoes, chocolate, grains, nuts, beans and more.
The Low-Oxalate Diet
More and more people are recommended to follow a low-oxalate diet to help maintain a healthy calcium-oxalate ratio for kidney health. This means reducing or giving up foods full of oxalate – sometimes nutritious foods. This diet takes hard work and can be socially and emotionally restricting.

We believe that oxalate education is important, not only for people who are actively working to maintain kidney health, but also for people who hope to become more health conscious and informed about the food we eat.
