Why no juices?
ORAC Issues.

We chose not to list ORAC scores for various juices for two reasons:

1. Each time juice ingredients or processing changes, the former ORAC score is rendered irrelavent and misleading.

2. When ORAC became popular, many companies started manipulating the test by using isolated/manufactured ingredients that were of questionable health benefit yet spiked the ORAC score of their juice.

We have found that a comparison of SOD activity paints a much more accurate picture as to whether the goodness of the original fruit is retained in the final product.
