Food pH Test Meters

A food pH meter is an important accessory to have when doing any kind of food preservation activities. This includes canning, cheese making, sausage or jerky making and more. A pH food tester tells you the acidity or alkalinity level of the tested food on a scale of 0-14, with 7 being pH neutral. Anything less than 7 is considered acid, and anything above 7 is alkaline. The importance of knowing the pH level of food recipes you're preparing is that foodborne pathogens (bacteria) require slightly acidic levels in order to thrive.

Dry-curing pH testing, easily accomplished with a meat pH meter such as the Milwaukee pH meter offered here, will let you know when your food preparations are in danger of promoting bacterial growth. We sell the pH meter, the pH calibration solution (4.01 & 7.01) needed to calibrate the unit, a hard carrying case and a replacement probe.
