II

Application of DRIs for Individual Diet Assessment

In Part II, the focus is on how to assess nutrient adequacy of individuals using the Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs).

Chapter 3 demonstrates how to compare an individual's intake to the appropriate DRI of a nutrient to decide, with a predetermined level of confidence, whether an individual's intake of a nutrient is adequate or excessive. A discussion on obtaining and interpreting information on individual intakes and the effect of the large within-person variation is included and examples of specific applications are provided.
