Adequate Intake (AI)

I was just browsing through some of the posts and noticed that the RDs have said in some cases, the amount of nutrient required is not the RDA, but rather an AI. In one example, potassium, the post said that the RD encourages people in her practise to strive for 75% of the AI.

I've been struggling to reach the AI for potassium myself.

I'm just wondering if when looking at the food diary, is there any way for us to tell which suggested nutrient amounts are an RDA and which ones are an AI?

Thank you
