Why did your ORAC score change from 40,000 to 15,000?
Our formula has not changed. We still offer the exact same antioxidant-rich Green SuperFood formula that we have always offered, since the product was launched in 2011.
There are several different ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) tests that measure anti-oxidants in foods. Currently, our ORAC score reflects a combined total orac test that measures the combined value of five of the most common free radicals in the body, which are: peroxyl, hydroxyl, peroxynitrite, super oxide anion and singlet oxygen. We are proud to partner with Futureceuticals and Brunswick Laboratories when and use their Spectra Total ORAC FN® blend in our Antioxidant Green SuperFood. Each batch is tested for efficacy authenticity by Brunswick Laboratories, the ORAC testing experts.
Other ORAC testing procedures may vary in measurements due to the compounds analyzed. Simply, the more or less compounds tested for may result in a higher or lower sum of ORAC units and we’ve chosen to use the more conservative ORAC testing results from Brunswick labs. With our current testing methods, Antioxidant Green SuperFood offers a whopping 15,000 ORAC units per 7g serving! According to the USDA Database for the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) of Selected Foods, Release 2, on average a ½ cup serving of carrots contains only 446 ORAC units, broccoli - 529 ORAC units, asparagus – 1,576 ORAC units, blueberries – 4,436 ORAC
