Update: FDA's Proposed Menu Labeling Regulations

The FDA has published its proposed guidelines pertaining to the National Menu Labeling Law, affecting restaurants with 20 or more locations nationwide.

FoodCALC will be releasing a more detailed summary of the law and how this will affect the industry next week.


Please note that this is not the final version of the national menu labeling guidelines, and no enforcement date has yet been given.

Some highlights from the proposed guidelines include:
  • Restaurants with 20 or more locations operating under the same name, and serving substantially the same menu, will be affected;
  •  
  • Disclosure will include calories on menus and menu boards and some marketing materials, with additional information (calories, calories from fat, total fat, saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrates, dietary fiber, sugar, and protein) available upon request;
  •  
  • A statement with recommended daily caloric intake must be made visible to consumers to give context to calorie counts;
  •  
  • There will be a 60-day public comment period for restaurants and the industry to provide feedback to the FDA;
  •  
  • Alcoholic beverages will not be included.

Details of these highly anticipated proposed regulations can be found as a 183-page document at:
