ORAC comparison between Acai and Aronia

There is a great deal of discussion over the ORAC comparison between Acai and Aronia.  USDA reported a Total ORAC value (Hydrophilic + Lipophillic Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity) for Aronia of over 16,000 micromoles Trolox Equivalents per 100 grams of fruit.  Some websites suggest that Acai is significantly less.
