In fact, authors of an article published in Nutrition in 2014 argued that use of antioxidant values, such as those obtained by ORAC testing to support health-benefit statements, should be discouraged.
The final ORAC results were calculated using a regression equation between the trolox concentrations and AUC, expressed as ORAC units, where 1 ORAC unit inhibits the decline produced by 1 [micro]molx[L.sup.-1] of trolox.
High-throughput assay of oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) using a multichannel liquid handling system coupled with a microplate fluorescence reader in 96-well format.
Similarly, the influences of cultivar and inoculation type on ORAC values (Figure 4) were not consistent over time.

From table 4 we can see that the total flavonoids yield and ORAC model of the p value is less than 0.0001, the loss of the p value is greater than 0.05, which indicates that the two models are more significant.
A similar dietary plan was assigned to patients enrolled in the control group (n = 19, group 3), but no ORAC supplementation was suggested.
Interestingly, the antioxidant activity, as evaluated by the LOX/RNO and ORAC assays, was higher in quinoa than in both durum wheat and emmer.
Proof of the benefit of Ambrotose AO supplementation, as measured by increased serum oxygen radical antioxidant capacity (ORAC), has been confirmed in three human clinical trials.
