Abstract : The military services periodically publish a joint regulation on nutrition allowances, standards, and education (more recently, Army Regulation 40-25, Naval Medical Command Instruction 10110.1, and Air Force Regulation 160-95). Summary tables in the regulation have presented the Military Recommended Dietary Allowances (MRDA). In FY01, a revised regulation (AR 40-25, NAVMEDCOMINST 10110. 1/AFI 44-141), now entitled Nutrition Standards and Education, was published. The 2001 regulation now presents Military Dietary Reference Intakes (MDRIs), as well as Nutritional Standards for Operational and Restricted Rations (NSORs). This technical note traces the changes between the 1985 and 2001 regulations and documents the rationale used in establishing the MDRIs and NSORs.
