Reliable information about nutrient requirements is essential to achieve nutrition security for all people.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) provides scientific advice on nutrient requirements to our Member Countries and international bodies, including the Codex Alimentarius Commission. National and international agencies use this information for developing policies and programmes for actions to improve nutrition throughout the world.
FAO activities on nutritional requirements include development of practical applications and tools for improving nutrition, such as nutrition labelling, training workshops and research related to nutrient requirements.
