What is a Dietary Reference Value?
The European Food Safety Authority defines a Dietary Reference Value (DRV) as “an umbrella term for a set of nutrient reference values”. In the UK the reference values that make up DRVs are:
- Reference Nutrient Intakes (RNIs)
- Estimated Average Requirements (EARs)
- Lower Reference Nutrient Intakes (LRNIs)
- Safe Intake (SI)
