If you shop at Whole Foods, you're likely to see ANDI scores listed for foods now. This scoring system was actually created by Dr. Fuhrman to show the relative nutrient density of foods. (More info here.)

Below are the top foods in each category, based on ANDI (Aggregate Nutrient Density Index) scores. These were copied from the Whole Foods website.

But don't get too obsessed with the highest scores. Here's an excerpt from the Eat Right America website, one of Dr. Fuhrman's projects (membership on the website is free):

Keep in mind that nutrient density scoring is not the only factor that determines good health. For example, if we only ate foods with a high nutrient density score our diet would be too low in fat. So we have to pick some foods with lower nutrient density scores (but preferably the ones with the healthier fats) to include in our high nutrient diet. Additionally, if a thin person or highly physically active individual ate only the highest nutrient foods they would become so full from all of the fiber and nutrients that would keep them from meeting their caloric needs and they would eventually become too thin. This of course gives you a hint at the secret to permanent weight control.

In fact, Eat Right America's top 30 superfoods don't all have the highest ANDI scores. Still, the scores are a good guide when assessing foods, especially, for example, if you get a bunch of Jerusalem artichokes in your CSA box and aren't sure whether you should try to eat them all.
