Terminology: ADI(Acceptable Daily Intake)

ADI:Acceptable Daily Intake

The Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) is the estimate amount of a specific substance on a daily basis over a lifetime without appreciable health risk. An ADI value is based on current research, with long-term studies on animals and observations of humans.

The ADI is calculated from the Non-Observable-Effect-Level (NOAEL). The NOAEL is divided by a safety factor, conventionally 100, to account for the differences between test animals and humans (factor of 10) and possible differences in sensitivity between humans.
