I have seen other list where Chaga is the highest can you explain the discrepancies that is occured when discribing ORAC

Yes, different people do the measurement differently, and it is rarely the exact same thing twice. Just one analysis can cost $80K, so you can understand that they aren't run all that often. Also, anything biological is going to vary from batch to batch. If you analyze 100 different Granny Smith apples from different farms, you are going to get 100 different results.

Sorry, there are no absolute definitive sites where that information can be determined. There has been a lot of hype about ORAC and everyone wants to claim that something different is "tops."

I will opt out since this question has no scientific answer. The question is now open to all experts.

Best regards,

Schuyler
