The Perfect Superfood
Biotest Superfood contains 18 incredibly potent, freeze-dried super extracts of WHOLE fruits and vegetables. You'd have to eat several pounds of expensive berries, fruits, and veggies per day to match one small serving of Superfood. And no amount of multivitamin tablets can beat Superfood's nutritional profile.*

Antioxidants and the ORAC Factor
The ORAC scale is a standardized test used by the USDA to measure the Total Antioxidant Potency of foods and nutritional supplements. The ORAC provides a precise way of measuring the power of specific foods or supplements to neutralize free radicals in the body. The term stands for "Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity," and the measurement is expressed as ORAC units per 100 grams of a given compound.*
For instance, the USDA determined an "average serving of fruits and vegetables" has an ORAC rating of between 400 and 500. But all fruits and vegetables aren't created equal. Some, like coffee berry, acai berry, and goji berry are off the chart on the ORAC scale.*
So just what is the ORAC rating of just 5 grams of Superfood? 5,315 ORAC. That means just one teaspoon of Superfood is equivalent to eating between 10 and 12 average servings of fruits and vegetables.*
Freeze Drying is the Key
How can one teaspoon be equivalent to that many servings of fruits and vegetables? Each of the ingredients in Superfood is freeze dried.
Freeze drying is a process by which nothing but the water is removed from the fruits and vegetables. Each product is individually quick frozen so all water turns to solid ice. It's then subjected to warm temperature and a vacuum so that the water turns to vapor and is essentially pulled out of the fruit or vegetable, leaving everything intact.
That means the pigments and phytochemicals have been well preserved. The ingredients in Superfood retain the identical phytochemical content, enzymatic activity, and bioactivity of fresh products.*
How to Use Superfood
All you need is one small serving per day. Superfood is a highly-concentrated powdered supplement with a mild natural flavor, much like an unsweetened berry tea. It can be used in a number of ways:
- Stir into water or juice.
- Add to protein shakes, smoothies, or workout drinks.
- Stir into oatmeal or yogurt.
- Add to pancake or waffle mixes, muffin recipes, chili dishes, and just about anything else.
