μ mol TE/100g.

The antioxidant value of Olive Oil w/ Basil (Home Prepared) described in ORAC units is: 684 μ mol TE/100g.


This test reflects the ORAC value for a homemade version of extra virgin olive oil with basil. The test did not specify whether dried or fresh basil was used.

Olive oil by itself has very little antioxidant content so in this food, it is safe to say a fair amount is coming from the added herb.
