RDA, UL, and AI are part of a set of nutrient guidelines for healthy people. The guidelines are called the Dietary Reference Intakes.
These guidelines are issued by the Food and Nutrition Board of the National Academy of Sciences. This is an independent nonprofit science group. The guidelines are updated from time to time. Updates are based on the latest data.
Daily Value (DV) is found on the Nutrition Facts label of any packaged food or drink. The DV shows the amount of a nutrient in one serving as a percentage. The % Daily Value is based on 2,000 calories a day. You may need more or less than 2,000 calories a day.
