The IOM has established an AI for omega-3 and omega-6, but has not established a recommendation for omega-9 fatty acids because they are made in the body and not required in the diet. Go to Food Composition > Macronutrients > Fats and Cholesterol for the DRI tables and more information about fats and fatty acids.
These resources provide more information about omega-3 and omega-6 fats:
- MedlinePlus: Dietary Fats (link is external)
- Face the Fats (link is external) (PDF | 278KB) provides a detailed listing of the amounts omega-3 fats in fish, as well as tips for consuming them if you don’t eat fish.
