The antioxidant capacity of black pepper is measured by the “oxygen radical absorbancy capacity” (ORAC value) of black pepper, a common measure used by food scientists of a food’s antioxidant level and gathered by the USDA.

The ORAC value in the graph below is for 100 grams of black pepper — far more than you will ever consumein months of eating, but you can still get a sense of antioxidants in your meal plan nonetheless.
