Found 10 records similar to Usual Intakes from Food for Energy, Nutrients and Other Dietary Components
2015 Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) data has been used to calculate usual intakes for sodium and potassium (mean and percentiles) for age, sex and life stage groupings and other variables.
The Food Consumption Table (FCT) provides estimates of daily intakes of foods (means and percentiles) obtained using data from the 2015 Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) Nutrition. Estimates were generated at three different food grouping levels based on the food group list from the Bureau of Nutritional Sciences, Food Directorate, Health Canada. These estimates are presented for two consumption populations: “all persons” and “eaters only”. Each estimate is further broken down by various age-sex categories.
History of Nutrition standards in North America
Published by Health Canada, the Nutrient Value of Some Common Foods (NVSCF) provides Canadians with a resource that lists 19 nutrients for 1000 of the most commonly consumed foods in Canada. Use this quick and easy reference to help make informed food choices through an understanding of the nutrient content of the foods you eat. For further information, a booklet is available on this site in a downloadable or printable pdf format.
Nutrition biomarkers contribute important information to the assessment of a population’s nutritional status.
The Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) are a comprehensive set of nutrient reference values for healthy populations that can be used for assessing and planning diets.
Recommendations for nutrient intakes are called Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs). DRIs are based on the amount of vitamins, minerals and other substances like fibre that we need - not only to prevent deficiencies, but also to lower the risk of chronic disease.

Safe food and good nutrition are important to Canadians. Maintaining the safety of Canada's food supply is a shared responsibility among government, industry and consumers. Eating a nutritious and balanced diet is one of the best ways to protect and promote good health.
