Scientific Report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee

Individuals age 71 and older: Usual Intake from Food and Beverages, and Total Usual Intake from Food, Beverages, and Dietary Supplements 2007-2010 Compared To Dietary Reference Intakes - all individuals regardless of supplement use and users of supplements containing the specific nutrient

The percentage of users of supplements containing these specific nutrients varies by sex / age group.

Some of the estimates are based on a relatively small number for a national probability sample. These statistics should be viewed with this consideration.

PLEASE NOTE: The values flagged with an asterisk (*) may be less reliable; interpret with caution.

NOTES: Mean intake estimated directly from day 1 dietary recall and 30-day supplement questionnaire. Usual intake distribution from dietary sources estimated using the National Cancer Institute Method.

Mean daily intake from supplements added to usual intake from dietary sources to produce total usual nutrient intakes.

* Estimate may be less reliable than others due to small sample size. Individuals with incomplete dietary supplement data excluded.

Estimated Average Requirement (EAR), Tolerable Upper Intake Level (UL), and percentage of individuals with usual intake below the EAR and above the UL.

Vitamin D dietary intake estimates reflect the sum of only vitamin D2 and vitamin D3; 25(OH)D values are not provided by USDA SR.
