Protein Recommendations: RDAs to the Real World!
The RDAs for protein established in the US and Canada, as well as similar standards around the world, serve as general guidance for most people to minimize the risk of deficiency. However, these standards were not intended for nutrition planning to optimize health and longevity especially when special circumstances are involved. For people who exercise or manage calories for weight reduction as well as those of advancing age, these standards are well below levels shown to be more beneficial. Moreover, modern techniques suggest the need to re-evaluate these levels. Meanwhile, better terminology and guidance is needed to correctly understand and applied these standards and differentiate between potentially more beneficial individual protein intake.
