Lima Beans, Canned

ORAC Value:
μ mol TE/100g.

The antioxidant value of Lima Beans, Canned described in ORAC units is: 243 μ mol TE/100g.


An ORAC test for raw and fresh lima beans hasn't been done, so we don't know how much antioxidant activity is lost in the canning process. What we can conclude though is that the canned version definitely doesn't have much antioxidant content.
