aThe dietary guidance for saturated fat presented in Table F-1D is from the American Heart Association (Krauss et al., 1996; AHA, 2004) and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans (USDA/DHHS, 2000; DHHS/USDA, 2005). The dietary guidance for saturated fat from the DRI report is to consume amounts as low as possible while consuming a nutritionally adequate diet (IOM, 2002/2005).

bThe dietary guidance for monounsaturated fatty acids presented in Table F-1D is from the American Heart Association (Krauss et al., 1996).

cThe AIs for n-6 fatty acids shown in Table F-1D are for linoleic acid (18:2, n-6). The AMDR for total n-6 fatty acids is 5 to 10% of food energy intake with at least 90% as linoleic acid and up to 10% from longer-chain n-6 fatty acids (IOM, 2002/2005). For n-6
