Dietary Reference Intakes for food labeling

Dietary Reference Intakes for food labeling

American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 83(5): 1215s-1216s

The annual American Society for Nutritional Sciences/American Society for Clinical Nutrition Public Information Committee symposium for 2005 titled "Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) for Food Labeling" served as a platform to address the use of DRIs in food labeling, a change that could affect the processing of foods and supplements and the nutrient intakes of consumers. Speakers from science, industry, trade organizations, and the government came together to provide critical thinking about the most appropriate DRI values to use in food labeling. The proceedings of the symposium cover consumer perspectives on food labels, the regulatory process for revising labeling relative to the DRIs, the food industry's perspective on the use of the new DRIs in food labeling, and differing opinions on whether to use Recommended Dietary Allowances or Estimated Average Requirements to set Daily Values.
