Difference between Vitamin D percentage values
I have a food that has this in the nutrition facts:
Vitamin D -- 320.00 IU -- 80% DV
However, when I add this food in the diary, my Vitamin D level is only at 53%. Is this a different number based on my height/weight, or is this a bug?
The %'s shown on a nutrition label are called the % Daily Values. They are standardized for all labels so that you can compare the nutrition in different food products using the same reference.
The %DVs are different than your nutrient targets in your diary. Your targets come from the Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) for your age, sex and life stage, by default.

Ok, that makes sense. Thanks for the explanation.
