A food label uses the following:
60 milligrams for vitamin C...so your 67.5 milligrams would convert to 113%
5000 IU for vitamin A...so your 5185 would convert to 103%

This chart is one that I use:

It looks to me like your melon has 223% of your Vitamin A and 90% of your Vitamin C.

Hope this helps!

Hi,
I am entering a food (Santa Claus melon) and found the nutrition information for it. This item has 5158 I.U. of Vitamin A and 67.5 mg of Vitamin C. How do I calculate the daily percentage so that I can add it?
