developed in 1941 The 19992004 Dietary Reference Intakes represent a new paradigm shift order from older nutrient recommendations because they are intended to help people prevent chronic disease states and avoid harm from consuming too much In the current version of the DRI RDAs are set for nutrients that have a scientifically determined Estimated Average Requirement The nutrient reference value termed Adequate Intake is based on approximations of nutrient intzge bv a group of healthv pepple with an adequate nutritional state as determined from national health data The need for setting a Tolerable Upper Intake in the current version of the DRIs is due to increased nutrient forti cation of foods and beverages and the use of dietary supplemean by more individuz Nutrient requirements 0 The same nutrients are required by healthy individuals throughout life 0 The amount varies based on age and gender 0 Physiologic states such as growth and illness affect nutrient requirement 0 Nutrients are provided to individuals through food Recommended protein intake for individual adults is easily met with a standard American diet RDAs for vitamins and minerals are based on a bellshaped curve and set at what percentile of a population s nutrient needs 97 98tile Recommendations for total fat in the diet Dietary fat occurs in food in the form of triglycerides Recommendations for water intake for adults include a minimum intake to 1500 mldav 6 cups and an Adequate Intake AI value focused on preventing dehydration 11 A primary criteria for minimum recommended carbohydrate intake of

activity are recommended by the DRIs for normal body weight 14 The DRIs are meant to apply to healthy adults liThe Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Range AMDR is a range of intake recommended for
