<p>The Balanced Nutrition Index™ (BNI™) is a technological application (a formula) created by Perezgonzalez for assessing the nutritional balance of foods, recipes and diets. It uses average <a href="">dietary recommended intakes (RDIs)</a> for assessing the nutritional balance of foods, thus being able to index foods and diets according to such balance. The BNI's underlying principle is quite simple: it subtracts actual macronutrients' contribution from 'ideal' macronutrients' contribution, adds the differences and, in so doing, compiles a unique figure that allows for indexing a given food product according to its degree of nutritional unbalance. <em>(See, for example, <a href="" target="_blank">The Balanced Nutrition Index™ database</a>.)</em></p>
