A Dietary Reference
Intake (DRI) for choline of 425mg per day for adult women and 550mg for adult
men is recommended by the Food and Nutrition Board of the National Academy of
Sciences. Lecithin, which occurs widely in a variety of foods, is the main
source of choline in the diet. However, rich sources of lecithin, such as eggs
and organ meats, often are also high in cholesterol. Lecithin supplementation is
one way to obtain choline without the cholesterol. One tablespoon of lecithin
granules provides the same amount of choline as 11 soft gel lecithin capsules,
and provides about 50% of the new DRI. New concentrated phospholipids, high in
choline, are also on the market for processors who want to fortify health bars
and other nutritional foods.
