WHAT IS AN ORAC?
There are currently six classes of free radicals linked to chronic illnesses. They are referred to as reactive oxygen species (ROS). The ORAC (oxygen radical absorption capacity) assay, developed in 1992 at the National Institues of Aging, measures the capabilities of antioxidants against free radicals by measuring how much a particular food inhibits the activity of free radicals. The test has now been adopted by the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on aging and is used extensively in scientific research.
Thousands of ORAC tests have been done on foods that are commonly consumed in the United States, Canada and abroad, taking into account changes in readings from factors such as the ripeness of produce and seasonal variances, as well as whether the food is fresh or a dried concentrate. The tests have revealed an entire spectrum of antioxidant activity in various foods.
