We are working on bringing you a comprehensive run down of all the essential vitamins and minerals and how these relate to a vegan diet, in the mean time it makes sense to have some understanding of what nutrients we require and in what quantities during different stages of life, so we can all (vegan or not) ensure we are meeting our nutritional needs. Therefore we are providing a copy of the Nutrient Reference Values for Australia and New Zealand (click to open), a document which sets out the recommended dietary intakes for all essential nutrients. Very useful to compare your average intakes to!
