Antioxidants per Calorie - Table of Foods

  1. 1. Antioxidants per Calorie AKA, ORAC per Calorie Table of FoodsNote: The following table provides antioxidants (ORAC) per calorie for 287 foods. Antioxidant testing results are fromUSDA Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) of Selected Foods, Release 2 (2010) (seehttp://www.ars.usda.gov/Services/docs.htm?docid=15866).Antioxidants per calorie is an important measurement, as incorporating antioxidants into the diet is limited by totalcalories consumed. Some foods that are extremely high in antioxidants by weight, such as dark chocolate, are much lessattractive when considering antioxidants per calorie due to their calorie density. The antioxidant per caloriemeasurement is somewhat less practical in measuring essentially calorie free foods such as unsweetened green tea andin measuring foods, such as spices that cannot be eaten in substantial quantities. It the following table, spice-type itemsthat cannot be eaten in significant quantities are shaded in green. Berries, which as a group make up the highestantioxidants foods that can be eaten in significant quantities, are shaded in red.
