EFSA has finalised its DRV report on thiamin and produced a draft recommendation for vitamin K. With regards to thiamin, EFSA endorsed an average requirement (AR) of 0.072 mg/MJ energy, and a population reference intake (PRI) of 0.1 mg/MJ, for all adults (including pregnant/breastfeeding women) and children from 7 months of age. Data on vitamin K (comprising both phylloquinone and menaquinones) were insufficient to derive any DRVs, though an adequate intake (AI) of 1 µg/kg bw/day was set for phylloquinone in all population groups.
