Part of the Affordable Care Act, Obama Care, will be new regulations for the food industry.
The draft language would require restaurants and grocery chains with more than 20 locations that devote more than half of their floor space to selling food to list the number of calories in each item of food they prepare.
The nation’s eateries are faced with the costly prospect of having to calculate the number of calories in the various meals they serve. The problem is not every meal or every ingredient is fixed in the same way which means, even steak could have various calorie counts depending on what was ordered.
But restaurants and grocery stores are concerned they’ll be required to recount the number of calories in a meal every time they tinker with a recipe, which they say would be nearly impossible to do considering the endless number of food combinations they sell.
This is just one of the many many regulations coming from the president in the coming days. In fact 3415 new regulations are coming or have been already released.
We're from the govenment and we're here to help.
