DIG

The DI values are based on an average adult's daily requirement of 8700kJ.  Your DIs may be higher or lower depending on your energy needs.

DIs are not recommendations, but rather an acceptable intake which provides a benchmark suitable for the majority of people.

The DI values are not a target for your day's intake nor are they an average. The DI values should be used as a guide to help you make informed choices about the foods you eat.
