Value Level Definition
4 High probably There is a direct correlation between the phase detected and the occurrence of the damage in terms of loss of nutritional biomarker; it is usually a phase that leads to loss of nutrients.
3 Probably The phase detected can cause damage, even if not in automatic mode or direct.
2 Unlikely The phase detected can cause loss of nutritional biomarker to the simultaneous occurrence of certain conditions.
1 Improbable The phase detected can cause damage to a combination of several independent events unlikely.
