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.
I eat a lot of this stuff...my 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.

Now I have a better understanding of antioxidants. Thank You.
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.
This list needs ti be update. It was published in 2004. I just found out that the coffeeberry has 625 the antioxidant capacity as the "mighty" blueberry! I take it in my coffee, my nutritional drink and even in my energy drinks! http://mycoffee365.com/joes
