Want to find the healthiest foods? Here's one method.


  1. Consider ORAC scores of various foods. ORAC refers to the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, an analysis that is used to measure the total antioxidant power of foods and other chemical substances. The higher the ORAC score, the greater its antioxidant capacity. This is a laboratory measurement and its relevance to the diet is unclear. Demonstrating that a substance neutralizes free radicals in a test tube and showing that it prevents some disease are quite different matters. ORAC scores for 3.5 oz (100 ml):
    • Mangosteen--------------------20,000
    • Acai--------------------------18,400
    • Pomegranate-------------------10,500
