Institute of Medicine Food and Nutrition Board DRI tables
(1) EAR = Estimated Average Requirement
The Estimated Average Requirement is the average daily nutrient intake level estimated to meet the requirement of half the healthy individuals in a particular life stage and gender group.
(2) RDA = Recommended Dietary Allowance
The Recommended Dietary Allowance is the average daily dietary nutrient intake level sufficient to meet the nutrient requirement of nearly all (97 to 98 percent) of healthy individuals in a particular life stage and gender group. See list of nutrients.
(3) AI = Adequate Intake
Adequate Intake is the recommended average daily intake level based on observed or experimentally determined approximations or estimates of nutrient intake by a group (or groups) of apparently healthy people that are assumed to be adequate-used when an RDA cannot be determined. See list of nutrients.
(4) UL = Tolerable Upper Intake Level
The Tolerable Upper Intake Level is the highest average daily nutrient intake level that is likely to pose no risk of adverse health effects to almost all individuals in the general population. As intake increases above the UL, the potential risk of adverse effects may increase.
Nutrition Chart for Macronutrients, Vitamins, Minerals and Calories
This daily nutrition requirements chart lists Calories, essential vitamins and mineral needs per day. We have developed this form to be a simple dietary intake calculator used in conjunction with our food fact charts. A proper recommended data table includes personal dietary needs, BMI and weight values and goals for life.
The goals of this study is not only to prevent nutrient deficiencies, but also to reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as osteoporosis, cancer and cardiovascular disease.
A medically recommended Dietary Reference Intakes (DRI) calculator for nutrients based on age, gender, height, weight and activity data. This daily nutritional requirements calculator is adequate for men, women, elderly, seniors, children and teens.
