What is daily value?

Endocrinologist, WebMD Medical Expert
Medical Editor, WebMD

Daily value shows the percentage of a certain nutrient in a food, based on a 2,000-calorie diet. The daily value gives you an idea of a food's nutrient contribution to your diet; 5% or less is considered low for that nutrient, and 20% or more is high.
