In U.S., Less Than Half Look at Restaurant Nutrition Facts
Different areas of the South have their own signature recipes. Additional ingredients may include cream cheese, eggs, paprika, pickles, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce or even jalapenos. But whatever the recipe, the one thing they all have in common is theyre high in fat. So I was delighted when I received the Cabot Creamery e-newsletter with its Lightened Up Pimento Cheese recipe on the front page. To reduce fat, it used some low-fat cheese and light mayonnaise, and added a little Greek yogurt in place of the full-fat ingredients.

restaurants list nutritional information on their menus, less than half of Americans, 43%, say they pay a “great deal” or a “fair amount” of attention to it. Americans are much more likely to take note of nutritional labels on food packages, with 68% saying they pay at least a fair amount of attention to this information. These data, from Gallup’s annual Consumption Habits survey, conducted July 10-14, come as some restaurants in the U.S. take steps to comply with a provision of the Affordable Care Act that requires restaurant chains with 20 or more locations to list calorie information on menus and menu boards by 2014. Other restaurants added nutritional information to their menus prior to the Affordable Care Act’s passage in 2010 to meet city or state requirements, to be transparent with their customers about the nutritional content of their food, or to respond to pressure from health groups. While menu labeling in restaurants is a new federal requirement, the federal government has required all packaged food to have nutritional labeling since 1990.
