Based on the DRI tables from Health Canada, last updated 2010 (

Calorie breakdown is as follows:

  • 30% carbohydrates (4 cal/g)
  • 20% protein (4 cal/g)
  • 50% fat (9 cal/g)

Vitamin A: 1 RAE = 1 µg retinol = 3.33 IU. Max value is for preformed (from supplements) only.

Vitamin D: Assumes minimal sun exposure.

Vitamin E: 1 mg alpha-tocopherol = 1.49 IU d-alpha-tocopherol. Max value is for synthetic (from supplements) only.

The DRI sets no guidelines regarding sulfur intake, because it is always present in adequate amounts in an ordinary diet. The listed amount is Rob's recommendation.

Magnesium: Max value for synthetic (from supplements) magnesium is 350.
