Alkaline tide it is condition after eating a meal, where there is temporary increase in blood pH due to production of HCl by parietal cells in the stomach and At the same time these cells extract chloride anions, carbon dioxide, water and sodium cations from the blood plasma and in turn release bicarbonate back into the plasma after forming it from carbon dioxide and water constituents.

alakaline tide
This mechanism maintain the plasma’s electrical balance and bicarbonate ions causes the venous blood leaving the stomach to be more alkaline than the arterial blood coming into it. The alkaline tide is neutralised by a secretion of H+ into the blood during HCO3− secretion in the pancreas.
A more pronounced alkaline tide results from excessive vomiting, which can result in metabolic alkalosis
