D-A-CH reference values

The D-A-CH* reference values have been established in a cooperation between the German Society of Nutrition e.V. (DGE), the Austrian Society of Nutrition (ÖGE) and the Swiss Association of Nutrition (SVE). They give recommendations for the daily energy and nutrient requirements which are necessary to maintain good health, classified according to age group. The recommendations provide the basis for nutritional planning. 

Dussmann Service orients its nutritional concepts on D-A-CH reference values.

* D-A-Ch is an acronym made up of the international abbrevations for the German language states.
