With the legal regulation in the United States, restaurants and catering places are required to write the menu of the menu of the calorie. In this way, overweight and obesity is aimed to combat.
Every restaurant and catering service in the US is required to write the calories of the menus. In a statement made by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it is stated that the new regulation will come into force in May next year.
The new regulation, made under former President Barack Obama's decision, aims to combat excessive weight and obesity problems among Americans.
FDA statement, the need to write calories on the food supermarkets and petrol stations that offer food on foot was also stated. Pizzerias and similar sellers serving in the house will also be subject to the same arrangement. Writing calories on meals is thought to be a warning about weight loss foods.
A detailed regulation has been published by the Food and Drug Administration on how to make information on the calorie of foods.
Recalling that Americans are increasingly paying attention to their health, Chief Executive Officer Scott Gottlieb said, "When consumers are given the necessary information to make decisions about their diet, it will raise the quality of life and even save lives."
It was unclear whether this legislation would be implemented, as US President Donald Trump overturned the decisions taken by his predecessor Obama in many ways.
In the US, chains such as McDonald's, Starbucks, or Subway, which operate in the gastronomy field, wrote about staying with a slow food. Many companies in the field of gastronomy have tried to prevent the new regulation.
