The values in the body of the table indicate ORAC (expressed in umole TE/100g) which are from the USDA
ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) is a measure of antioxidant activity expressed as ORAC value in micromole Trolox Equivalent (TE), a standard antioxidant per 100 g of the food or extract to be tested. Higher numbers indicate better capacity to neutralize reactive oxygen radicals. ORAC measurement is one of the methods scientists and industry use for measuring the potential of antioxidants in foods and food additives.
Just one teaspoon of Bakto vanilla extract a day in milk, yogurt, coffee, tea or water provides a considerable portion of the recommended daily intake of antioxidants.
Although one uses vanilla products in small portions, at the end of the day it adds up. A spoon of vanilla sugar can be added to a wide range of daily foods for instance your morning coffee, ice-cream, yogurt, or any other dairy product. Vanilla extract or vanilla beans can be added to all orange vegetable dishes (for example sweet potato, butternut squash, or celery knob). Spaghetti and barbeque sauces can be enhanced by adding a piece of vanilla bean. When vanilla is added one can use less salt. Feel free to contact us if you are looking for exotic recipes.
