    • Restaurant Nutritional Labeling – Where are we now? Esha Research
    • We have all seen the nutrition label now listed on restaurant menus but what other changes can we expect to see?
    • Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act In 2010 restaurants with 20 or more locations became required to label the calorie content of standard menu items.
    • Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act The law also states that more detailed nutrient information should be made available in writing upon request.
    • Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act Restaurant nutritional labeling guidelines were implemented as part of the American government’s campaign against obesity.
    • Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act The Center for Disease Control estimates that and are obese. 32% of children 68% of adults
    • Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act Studies show that people are more unaware of the calorie content of restaurant foods and it is hoped that the creation of restaurant nutritional labeling will help inform people to make better choices.
    • Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act The FDA recently released proposed rules to the act which must become effective six months after they are released.
    • Here are some of the decisions the FDA is leaning towards:
    • 1 • Calories listed on menus must be listed to the nearest 5 calories up to 50 calories, and to the nearest 10 calories above 50 calories. • Foods fewer than five calories may report zero.
    • 2 • Required statement for people to understand the posted calories in relation to their total daily diet: “A 2,000 calorie daily diet is used as the basis for general nutrition advice; however, individual calorie needs may vary.”
    • 3 • The FDA is proposing that restaurants make available printed product information that includes the following nutrients: calories, fat, saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrates, fiber, sugar and protein.
    • 4 • More detailed nutrient information be labeled for each variety, flavor and food component of the combination meal, however, for optimal clarity.
    • These possible regulations and more will soon be out and be the final authority for restaurant labeling guidance.
