ORAC Values of Fruits and Vegetables
ORAC values refer to the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity of a food, as determined by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (DOA). By testing the ability of foods and other compounds to subdue oxygen free radicals, the DOA was able to determine each compound's antioxidant capability. The ORAC values in the following chart reflect these findings.
|Raspberries||1,220||Red bell pepper||713|
