What Is ORAC?
The ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) unit, ORAC value, or "ORAC score" is a method of measuring the antioxidant capacity of different foods and supplements. It was developed by scientists at the National Institutes of Health. While the exact relationship between the ORAC value of a food and its health benefit has not been established, it is believed that foods higher on the ORAC scale will more effectively neutralize free radicals. According to the free-radical theory of aging, this will slow the oxidative processes and free radical damage that can contribute to age-related degeneration and improve health and well being.
ORAC Acai Berry
Fruits and vegetables appear to rank high on the list; but what about Acai ORAC values? Well, Acai registered an astounding 5,500 ORAC score. For the average person they need 1670 ORAC per day. To give this perspective 80% - 90% of people in the world do not consume even half of the daily required ORAC's.
ORAC Maqui Berry
Maqui Berries have very high anti-oxidant levels, significantly higher than other fruits and much higher than that of Acai Berries. Its oxygen radical absorbance capacity is therefore very high. The approx. ORAC score of 100g of maqui fruit is about 27,600.
Maqui berries have been used by the indigenous peoples in the part of the Patagonia where Chile and Argentina meet. They have been used by the Mapuche Indians who are the only tribe that has never been conquered by the colonists. While it is disputable whether their famous battling capabilities have anything to do with the maqui berries, there is definitely a possibility that these berries are the secret behind their imperviousness to foreign conquerors.
ORAC Pure Cacao
Florida Herb House's raw Cacao beans contain approx. 10 grams of super antioxidants per 100 grams. Research has also demonstrated that the antioxidants in cacao are highly stable and easily available to human metabolism. In the adjacent table you can see that raw cocoa powder has set the world record for antioxidants with nearly 4 times the amount of antioxidants as Goji Berries. The ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale was developed by the United States Department of Agriculture to measure the ability of antioxidants to absorb free radicals, which normally cause cell and tissue damage. The higher the ORAC score, the higher the level of antioxidants present in the food. The ORAC rating for our unrefined cacao powder which is used in the ORAC drink mix is approx. 95,500 units high on the ORAC scale!
The average serving of fresh or lightly cooked produce provides between 600 and 800 ORAC units. In contrast, one cup of strawberries weighs in on the ORAC meter with 3520 units.
