The average daily nutrient intake level that is sufficient to meet the nutrient requirement of nearly all (97-98%) healthy individuals who are in a particular life stage and gender group.

Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA)


A recommended average daily nutrient intake level,, based on observed (or experimentally determined) approximations or estimates of nutrient intake that are assumed to be adequate for a group of healthy people. This measure is used when RDA cannot be determined.

Adequate Intake (AI)
