The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has reviewed the Tolerable Upper Intake Levels (ULs) for calcium and vitamin D.
For vitamin D, the UL for adults and adolescents has been raised from 50 micrograms (50µg) a day to 100µg; the UL for children aged 1-10 has been increased from 25µg a day to 50µg a day.
For calcium, the panel concluded that no new data have become available which would require a revision of the UL for adults of 2,500mg a day.
