Chocolate Syrup

ORAC Value:
μ mol TE/100g.

The antioxidant value of Chocolate Syrup described in ORAC units is: 6,330 μ mol TE/100g.


You may be thinking the ORAC value is high in antioxidants, but it is important to consider that chocolate syrup can vary great in its cocoa content and that is where the flavanoids called anthocyanidin are coming from. Obviously, the more sugar and filler in the syrup, the less antioxidants it will have.
