2 Wild blueberries 1 cup 13427

3 Red kidney beans, dried 1/2 cup 13259

4 Pinto beans 1/2 cup 11864

5 Blueberries, cultivated 1 cup 9019

6 Cranberries 1 cup 8983

7 Artichoke hearts, cooked 1 cup 7904

8 Blackberries 1 cup 7701

9 Dried prunes 1/2 cup 7291

I hope so too, but that's an incomplete list. And the ORAC values are often different from list to list. I've never seen those legumes ranked so high. And cocoa tops many lists I've seen.
