How can you find the antioxidant content in food?

Antioxidants in food can be determined by their ORAC score, which stands for oxygen radical absorption capacity. This score assesses the ability of a plant to eliminate free radicals. Foods with higher ORAC scores have greater antioxidant capacity, and more effectively neutralize harmful free radicals. Research has shown that the body can use abut 3000-5000 ORAC units per day. Anything over that amount is simply excreted by the kidneys. Also, check out this article on coffee fruit –  an uncommonly eaten berry with a super high ORAC score.
