No, Fats are not acidic but it is alkalising.
Fats are best alkalising buffer for body, as it has an ability to take extra acids on its carbon chain.
Fatty acids are the long chain of hydrocarbons in which carboxylic group is present at one end.
Long chain fatty acids are found in most of the fats and oils.
