‘ FDA WILL PUT CALORIE COUNTS ON MENUS ‘


#AceFoodNews – WASHINGTON – Nov.25 – Whether they want to or not, consumers will soon know how many calories they are eating when ordering off the menu at chain restaurants, picking up prepared foods at supermarkets and even eating a tub of popcorn at the movie theatre AP reported.

The Food and Drug Administration announced long-delayed calorie labelling rules Tuesday, requiring establishments that sell prepared foods and have 20 or more locations to post the calorie content of food “clearly and conspicuously” on their menus, menu boards and displays.

Companies will have until November 2015 to comply.
