Analysis Questions

Analysis Questions

Finish Tables 1 and 2 in the document you downloaded by using the following resources for Target or RDA/AI Nutrient values.

Macronutrients: Use the AMDRs that you learned about in your text for Target values. These can be found in their respective chapters in the text (Chapters 4, 5, and 6).

Micronutrients: Use the link below for RDA/AI values for all vitamins and minerals except Vitamins A and D. For Vitamins A and D, the units from Cronometer do not match the RDA/AI units found in the link below. While this is the most recent publication for RDA/AIs, presently IUs are the preferable measurement for vitamins A and D. As a result, Cronometer provides their results in IUs for these two vitamins. Use the following guidance:

        Vitamin A –     RDA 3000 IU for males

                                RDA 2,333 IU for females

        Vitamin D –     RDA 600 IU for males and females

Recommended Dietary Allowance and Adequate Intakes
