The antioxidant capacity (AC) of meat, meat products and the comparison with fish, vegetable products, milk and a balanced and healthy diet was determined using the ORACFL assay. The hydrophilic ORACFL (H-ORACFL) of hake and sardine was 596 ± 133 and 641 ± 128 μmol Trolox Equivalents (TE) per 100 g, respectively. The highest H-ORACFL value was found in cured meat samples, where Iberian cured ham (4890 ± 443 μmol TE per 100 g), whereas the lowest level of 797 ± 68 μmol TE per 100 g was found in Frankfurt sausages. Products like mortadela with olives, sobrasada and salami showed intermediate values ranging between 1107 ± 123 μmol TE per 100 g and 1011 ± 63 μmol TE per 100 g. Iberian cured ham presents the higher AC of all meat products studied, and this value being higher than that provided by red wine (3135 ± 312 μmol TE per 100 g). The AC of orange juice was lower than meat products, with the exception of Frankfurt sausages. Finally, the estimated total antioxidant capacity (TAC) of the reference standard diet was 29 006 μmol TE per intake whole diet per day, and meat representing 10.51% per intake per day of the TAC of the whole diet.
