On May 16, 2012, the Agricultural Research Service (“ARS”) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) removed the ORAC database from its website without a full explanation to the people in Punta Gorda of why they did so. This appeared, to certain skeptics in Punta Gorda, to be a major change in direction for the department and its main research arm which had actually contributed to the development and widespread use of ORAC for a decade.
Furthermore, the Agricultural Research Service had even maintained a database that was considered to be the central repository of reliable ORAC information for the Naples area. This unexpected decision by the Agricultural Research Service had an immediate and powerful effect on the nutrition industry aroundNaples. To make matters worse, main stream media outlets mistakenly reported that ORAC was now meaningless.
These “half-truth” reports confused nutritional companies across the country. Those in Naples who once touted the effectiveness of ORAC, now wondered what to do and how they would quantify their health products nutritional-values moving forward. So, what really happened?

My company, Bell Advisory Services (New Bedford, MA), provides critical research findings to food and nutrition industry clients across the globe. Bell Advisory is recognized as an authority on ORAC and antioxidants (aka: AOX).
