Their rating is based on:

IF Positives
This food contains known anti-inflammatory nutrients, including Monounsaturated Fat, Selenium, Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) and Folate.

IF Negatives
This food contains known inflammatory nutrients, including Arachidonic Acid and Saturated Fat.

From The IF Rating™ System:

Monica Reinagel, a noted nutritional researcher, is the creator of the IF (Inflammation Factor) Rating™ system. Before creating her system, she spent years studying systemic inflammation, and compiled data from hundreds of different research studies. Her system considers the inflammatory and anti-inflammatory effects of more than twenty separate nutrients. In ND's opinion, this rating system is the most sophisticated approach to date for predicting the inflammatory effects of foods.
I liken this "approach" to those who look at wheat and say it is full of fiber, vitamins, and minerals, so therefore it is very healthy--all the while being ignorant or denying the existence of anti-nutrients, lectins, evolutionary biology, etc. This person bases their system on 20+ nutrients, which means that hundreds, thousands, maybe millions, are ignored.

Talk to anyone who has black-boxed nightshades, particularly peppers, and found them extremely pro-inflammatory to get their opinion of her "system".
