This volume determines guiding principles for including chronic disease endpoints for food substances that will be used by future National Academies committees in establishing the Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs).


Since 1938 and 1941, nutrient intake recommendations have been issued to the public in Canada and the United States, respectively. Currently defined as the Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs), these values are a set of standards established by consensus committees under the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine and used for planning and assessing diets of apparently healthy individuals and groups.

In 2015, a multidisciplinary working group sponsored by the Canadian and U.S. government DRI steering committees convened to identify key scientific challenges encountered in the use of chronic disease endpoints to establish DRI values.

This issue outlined and proposed ways to address conceptual and methodological challenges related to the work of future DRI Committees.
