Xoçaí's ORAC6 Superiority

Can chocolate truly be healthy?

Developed by industry scientists, the ORAC test measures the antioxidant load of any given food. Near the top of the known antioxidant-rich foods is raw cocoa, which scores more than 80,000 for a 100 mg serving on the latest ORAC ratings from the USDA. Not surprisingly, because of the inclusion of cold-processed cocoa, a├žai and blueberries, Xocai's products boast the highest ORAC scores of any functional foods available today. These super-antioxidant ingredients contain various free radical fighting polyphenols, including flavanols, epicatechins, catechins, procyanidins, as well as vitamins C and A.


ICT ORAC6: A Seal of Superior Quality

The astounding ORAC6 scores for Xocai various products come from ICT, an independent, third-party analytical laboratory that provides analytical services for some of the world's finest research institutions, corporations, and public organizations. Xocai is now enrolled in the ICT Certified Program, an authoritative quality-assurance system that issues certification to products that have met strict criteria for some of their most popular ORAC6 tests. The program is designed to help consumers cut through the confusion surrounding ORAC6 scores and antioxidant values, as well as to discern which products make questionable claims regarding their antioxidant values.


"The ICT Certification Program ensures that Xocai products are tested and meet specific criteria several times each year. This seal will appear on all Xocai product packaging for complete customer confidence."
