1,200 IU of Vitamin D now recommended if you consume 3,000 calories daily (FDA) – 2018

US FDA recommends daily value of 800 IU per 2,000 IU of calories
DV of Vitamin D = 20 micrograms = 800 IU will be on US food labels in 2020

It is the MIMIMUM amount to maintain health

The amount recommended is proportional to the actual calories consumed

Many people consume >3,000 calories/day


Many tall people consume >3,000 calories/day


Most counties now consume >3,000 calories/day


Daily value replaced Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA)
Daily value increases with the amount of calories consumed.
The RDA was not proportional to calories consumed
