Why Doesn't Cronometer adjust for bioavailability?
I like this application quite a lot, but the major problem I have is that the micronutrients do not adjust for bioavailability. For example, beta-carotene from plant foods has a 12:1 conversion to the usable form retinol, yet that is not reflected into the RDI listed. This means if I consume 100% RDI from plant foods for Vitamin A, it is actually only about 8% of my RDI. If I consume 100% from animal foods, that would actually be 100% of my RDI.
