a set of five lists of values for measuring the nutrient intakes of healthy people in the United States and Canada. The lists are Estimated Average Requirements (EAR), Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA), Adequate Intakes (AI), Tolerable Upper Intake Levels (UL), and Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Ranges nutrient standards used on food labels and on grocery store and restaurant signs. Based on nutrient recommendations for a general 2,000- calorie diet, they allow consumers to compare foods with regard to nutrients and calorie contents. nutrient intake goals for individuals; the average daily nutrient intake level that meets the needs of nearly all (97 to 98 percent) healthy people in a particular life stage and gender group. nutrient intake goals for individuals; the recommended average daily nutrient intake level based on intakes of healthy people in a particular life stage and gender group and assumed to be adequate. Set when scientific data are insufficient to allow establishment of an RDA value. the highest average daily nutrient intake level that is likely to pose no risk of toxicity to almost all healthy individuals of a particular life stage and gender group. the average daily nutrient intake estimated to meet the requirement of half of the healthy individuals in a particular life stage and gender group; is used in nutrition research and policy making and is the basis upon which RDA values are set. values for carbohydrate, fat, and protein expressed as percentages of total daily caloric intake; ranges of intakes set for the energy- yielding nutrients that are sufficient to provide adequate total energy and nutrients while minimizing the risk of chronic diseases.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
