What is the ORAC Table?

ORAC Table - A test that measures anti-oxidents in food...

Well, first off, it was developed by food nutrition researchers at Tufts University's USDA sponsored Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging.

An ORAC test measures a food's anti-oxidant ability to neutralize free radicals and potentially mitigate disease.

These researchers now know that it is not the antioxidant isolates such as vitamin C, or E, that provides the most effective anti-oxidant benefits, but all of the vitamins, minerals, and dietary phytochemicals working synergistically that provide the most disease-preventing potential.

Nutritionist recommend at least 4,000 ORAC per day and more if under any of the various stressors most of us face each day. Most individuals get only 1,200 to 1,700 ORAC units per day.

Take a look at the following ORAC ratings regarding various fruits (note that wolfberries—goji berries-- don't even make the chart!)

chokeberry 76

elderberry 61

prune 57.7

bilberry 46.6

raisins 28.3

blueberry 24

blackberry 20.4

strawberry 15.4

red raspberry 12.2

plum 9.5

orange 7.5

red grape 7.4

cherry 6.7

kiwi 6.2

grapefruit pink 4.8

green grape 4.5

apple 2.2

banana 2.2

pear 1.3
