Acceptable Daily Intake
Similar term(s): ADI.
Estimate of the amount of a substance in food and/or drinking water, expressed
on a body weight basis that can be ingested
daily over a lifetime without appreciable health risk to the consumer on the
basis of all the known facts at the time of the evaluation.
It is usually expressed in milligrams of
the chemical per kilogram of body weight. ADIs are used for substances that have
a reason to be found in food (as opposed to a contaminant - see
TDI) and as such, include additives,
pesticide residues and veterinary drugs in foods.
