ALICE is a multi-purpose heavy-ion detector, which has excellent tracking and particle identification (PID) capabilities. This allows the measurement of identified particle production up to a very high transverse momentum (\(p\mathrm {_{T}}\)). Here, we report recent measurements of \({\pi }\), K, p, K\(^{*0}\), \({\phi }\), \({\Xi }\) and \({\Omega }\) in minimum bias pp collisions at \(\sqrt{s} = \) 13 TeV. Various particle yield ratios like K/\(\pi \), p/\(\pi \), K\(^{*0}\)/K, \(\phi \)/K, \({\Omega }\)/\(\pi \) and \({\Xi }\)/\(\pi \) are studied as a function of \(\sqrt{s}\) to understand the energy dependence of particle production. Particle ratios such as p/\({\pi }\) and K/\({\pi }\) are measured as a function of \(p\mathrm {_{T}}\) and the results are compared to model predictions.
