ANDI ORAC biophysical measuring systems
Nutrition is more than just calories.
Two biophysical measuring systems, ORAC and ANDI, aim to accurately represent just how healthful certain foods are.
ORAC - Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity
The ORAC score measures the amount of antioxidants in food. The higher the score, the more beneficial a product is. Raisins and grapes are examples of foods full of antioxidants and as such score high on the ORAC scale.
ANDI - Aggregate Nutrient Density Index
The ANDI score measures the amount of nutrients per calorie in a given food item. The most hyped veggie in instragram age, Kale, is densely packed with both vitamins and minerals and has a perfect ANDI score of 1000/1000.
