ORAC - Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity Information
ORAC, short for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, is a test tube analysis that measures the total antioxidant power of foods and other chemical substances. This measuring ability was developed at the National Institute of Aging in Baltimore, Maryland. Foods that score high are: Mangosteen, Acai, Prunes, Raisins, Blueberries, Kale, Spinach, some spices and Cocoa. Foods that are moderately high ORAC values include Wild Blueberries, Pomegranates and Black Raspberries.
In 2004, scientists with the US Department of Agriculture published an updated list of ORAC values or the score for over 100 common foods that are commonly consumed by the U.S. population. Values were reported as micromoles of Trolox equivalents (TE, vitamin E derivative) per gram both for lipid-soluble ("lipophilic" as for carotenoids) and water-soluble ("hydrophilic" as for phenolics) antioxidant chemicals in foods. Thus there were a sum of lipophilic and hydrophilic values or total ORAC. These values are considered to be more accurate than previously published ORAC numbers because lipophilic values were being included for the first time. These data showed that all plants have variable amounts of both lipophilic and hydrophilic phytochemicals that contribute to the total ORAC.
If findings are borne out in further research, young and middle-aged people may be able to reduce risk of diseases of aging, including senitlity, simply by adding high-ORAC foods to their diets, said ARS Administrator Floyd P. Horn.
In the studies, eating plenty of high ORAC foods, or taking supplements that are high in Orac found this: Raised the antioxidant power of human blood 10 to 25 percent and prevented some loss of long-term memory and learning ability in middle aged.
