The ALICE experiment started studying pp collisions at the end of 2009. Pions, kaons, protons are identified using the excellent identification capability of the central barrel detectors over a wide momentum range, at central rapidity (|y| < 0.5). The ALICE detectors were designed to perform such a study by using the energy-loss dependence on momentum in the lower and intermediate pt region and the time-of-flight measurement in the higher pt region. Moreover, the kaon yield is also measured reconstructing the kaon decays through their kinks topology. A comparison between ALICE measurements and Monte Carlo predictions (using several models) is also reported focusing on the features of the observed pt spectra.
