The Daily Intake (% DI) states the percentage of the recommended daily intake of the mandatory NIP nutrients, including energy, protein, fat, saturated fat, carbohydrate, sugars, dietary fibre, and sodium, that a single serving of a food or beverage provides. This information is voluntary and is provided to help consumers understand the nutritional content of the product. See Standard 1.2.8 for more information. 

The Recommended Dietary Intake (% RDI) and Estimated Safe and Adequate Daily Dietary Intake (% ESADDI) applies to vitamins and minerals, and must be provided if a nutrition claim is made about a vitamin or mineral that has an RDI/ESADDI. See Standard 1.2.8 and Schedule 1 for more information.

To display the % DI for mandatory nutrients on a label:

  1. Open the relevant recipe or sub recipe
  2. Navigate to the Labelling tab
  3. Click the NIP sub-tab
  4. Click the Show % Daily Intake column switch

To display the % RDI and % ESADDI for non-mandatory nutrients on a label:

  1. Open the relevant recipe or sub recipe
  2. Navigate to the Labelling tab
  3. Click the NIP sub-tab
  4. Tick the relevant non-mandatory nutrient in the Nutrients to include in NIP container to display them as an option in the Show RDI and ESADDI container.
  5. In the Show RDI and ESADDI container, select the relevant nutrients you wish to display on the label.

Notes

  • If there are no RDI or ESADDI nutrients to enable in the Show RDI and ESADDI container, you may need to enable them in your Workspace Settings and provide a value on the recipes Overrides tab. 
  • How RDI/ESADDI is displayed changes depending on whether the Show % Daily Intake Column switch is enabled or disabled.
