New tool provides dietary information

EFSA has launched an interactive tool that allows nutritionists and other health professionals to make quick and easy calculations using EFSA’s dietary reference values (DRV)[2].

The DRV Finder searches by population group or nutrient, allowing users to extract and combine the precise information they need from the 32 opinions on DRVs that EFSA has published in recent years. The opinions contain DRVs for water, fats, carbohydrates and dietary fibre, protein, energy, as well as 14 vitamins and 13 minerals.

Health professionals and authorities, risk managers, policy-makers, food manufacturers and scientists are expected to use the DRV Finder to help consumers make healthy food choices.
