I know there are at least some "foodie" types here, ANDI score

Recommended Posts

Choose well for optimum nutririon.

 

The "ANDI" scorre is the Aggregate Nutrient Density Index (ANDI) score, developed by Dr. Joel Fuhrman, measures calcium; the carotenoids beta carotene, alpha carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, and lycopene; fiber; folate; glucosinolates; iron; magnesium; niacin; selenium; vitamins B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B6, B12, C, and E; and zinc, plus the ORAC score X 2. Most importantly, the ANDI scores are based on calories, not volume or weight of food, so a lower-calorie food with more nutrients scores higher than a calorie-dense food.

 

Here's a list of scores for various foods. The first link is a good quick overview. The second, more comprehensive. Very interesting.
