NOTES FOR TABLES B-3A THROUGH B-3E: AT = (alpha)-tocopherol; ATE = (alpha)-tocopherol equivalents; DFE = dietary folate equivalents (1 DFE = 1 mcg food folate = 0.6 mcg of folic acid from fortified food or as a supplement consumed with food = 0.5 mcg of a supplement taken on an empty stomach); IU = International Units; kcal = kilocalories; N/ A = not available; RAE = retinol activity equivalents. † Estimate of nutrient content calculated from an incomplete data set due to data missing from the database, an inherent shortcoming of Standard Reference 17. ‡ Nutrient content is not listed because of substantial error in the calculation introduced due to data missing from the SR-17 database. * Data not available in database.

aThe nutrient analysis in this table is part of the secondary analyses for this report using the USDA Nutrient Database for Standard Reference (SR-17) (NDL, 2004) (Tables B-3A through B-3E). The primary nutrient analysis is presented in Tables B-2A through B-2E, and uses Nutrition Data System for Research (NDS-R) software version 5.0/35 (2004) developed by the Nutrition Coordinating Center (NCC), University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN (Schakel et al., 1988, 1997; Schakel, 2001).
