Note: ORAC units are a measure of antioxidant content developed by the National Institute on Aging (NIA) at the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the US Department of Agriculture. No specific number of units is recommended and the USDA has since withdrawn its previous publication of typical ORAC values. Accordingly, the charts above are useful mainly in comparing relative antioxidant contents of various products rather than for the absolute values reported.
