DATA SOURCES: Intake data were obtained from 1994–1996 and 1998 Continuing Survey of Food Intake by Individuals (CSFII) (FSRG, 2000); data set does not include intake from dietary supplements (e.g., multivitamin and mineral preparations) or sodium intake from table salt. All infants and young children were non-breastfed. The ULs were obtained from IOM (1997, 1998, 2000b, 2001, 2002/2005, 2005a). Intake distributions were calculated using C-SIDE (ISU, 1997). Dietary guidance for cholesterol is from the American Heart Association (AHA, 2004) and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2005 (DHHS/USDA, 2005).
