Calculating Daily Values 

Throughout this course, we are encouraged to include a variety of food in our diet. One reason is that some foods are better sources than others for specific nutrients. No particular food or food group can supply 100% of our daily requirement. It can be difficult to memorize the required amount in each vitamin. Luckily, the US government developed the %DV to guide us in our food choices. The FDA suggests we use the 5/20 Rule when choosing foods.

  • 5% DV or less of a nutrient per serving is considered a low source of that nutrient
  • 20% DV or more of a nutrient per serving is considered a high source of that nutrient
  • Above 5%DV and Below 20% DV, indicate moderate
