Abstract Recommended dietary intakes (RDIs) are a key tool for nutrition practitioners. After much debate about nutrient recommendations 1 the Nutrient Reference Values (NRVs) for Australia and New Zealand have been released. 2 The values include not just RDIs but a range of other references such as those for adequate intake (AI), estimated average requirements (EAR) upper limit of intake (UL) as well as suggested dietary targets (SDTs) for chronic disease risk reduction. This is the first review for more than 15 years and represents changes not just in the values themselves, but the number of nutrients to be considered. Nutrition professionals need a clear understanding of the scientific basis of these values, their application and their limitations. There are also issues for Food Standards Australia and New Zealand (FSANZ) in relation to food labels and ultimately the consumer, as well as nutrition educators.
