I have an answer for the provided example:

Fitday's nutrition label is based on DV (to match all nutrition labels).
FitDay's total nutrition is based on RDA.
  • Vit A %DV = 5,000 IU
  • Vit A RDA = 700 mcg

250 grams of "Papaya, Raw" contains:
  • 2,735 IU of Vit A - about 55% %DV
  • 137.5 mcg of Vit A - about 20% RDA

FitDay could make this more obvious. I'll see if we can add some text to the nutrition labels to make it more clear that those calculations are based on DV.
