Chapters cover the use of food consumption data and total diet studies to derive intake levels, the assessment of duplicate portion studies, and the calculation and reporting of dietary intakes. Annexed to the report are 19 lists, charts, tables, and sample forms that aid the practical application of methods and approaches described in the book
