The Top 20 Antioxidant-Packed Foods

How Many of These Healthy Powerhouses Are You Eating?


  • Best description of anti-oxidents I have read! - 9/30/2014 1:17:52 PM
  • I was so surprised to learn about the antioxidant richness of the beans! And, it was reassuring to see that the foods I've really grown to love - artichokes and berries among them - have, over the past several years since I lost my 80 lbs., become real favorites, too. Great news! - 8/11/2014 9:01:02 PM
    Regarding the Acai berries, so far, the only research done on them was done by the companies that process them, NOT any real research has been done, yet, so you have to take any thing touted with a grain of salt. Plus, researchers are sort of disappointed lately that anti oxidants are really not doing all the things that they had hoped they would do, after all. Antioxidant research has to go on for another 30 yrs. to see if they really can do very much. - 8/11/2014 3:27:44 PM
    Can anyone explain the difference in using dried beans vs. canned ??? Is there that much difference and if so what and why. Curious.. Thanks - 8/11/2014 9:35:56 AM
  • So happy to see pecans, artichokes and blackberries on this list - 4/15/2014 8:29:53 AM
  • Anorther berry is missing from this list: Acai. It is packed with antioxidants more than most other foods. You can buy it in frozen puree packages from most stores. I make Acai Bowls with tem but some people use them for smoothies too. - 11/18/2013 2:33:38 PM
  • Keep in mind that your best course of action is to lower your need for anti-oxidants in the first place.

    Eating grains actually INCREASES your need for anti-oxidants - they reduce absorption of most minerals. Less grain, better absorption.

    If you eat low carb, you need much less vitamin C because carbs and vitamin C are in competition for absorption. - 11/18/2013 10:30:16 AM

  • I am a freak for kidney beans. I put them in all my soups that I can, and all my dinners. I just need to try them on a salad. YUM - 11/4/2013 2:41:24 PM
  • This was very informative!

    I eat a lot of this favorites are strawberries and blueberries when they are in season...a half a cup of each in my oatmeal each morning. One thing I need to incorporate into my diet are beans. - 11/4/2013 9:16:25 AM

  • what a great explanation of antioxidants! and a great list, too - i just had artichokes for dinner and bought blueberries at the grocery store. almost bought some cherries, too, but money is kinda tight at the moment. strawberries and apples are big ones for me, too - gala are my absolute favorites, i love crisp, tart apples. - 7/20/2013 10:27:57 PM
