National Restaurant Association (NRA) members now have access to a suite of nutrition-analysis providers at discounted rates to help them plan and enhance their menus. This partnership comes on the heels of President Obama signing the healthcare reform bill into law in March, which includes a provision that creates a national, uniform nutrition-disclosure standard for restaurants.

The NRA partnered with three nutrition-analysis providers to offer personalized services to restaurants of all types based on their different needs: FoodCALC, Healthy Dining and Silliker.

MenuCalc, a FoodCALC product, is a web-based recipe nutrition-analysis software solution designed for restaurant operators that provides easy-to-use, low-cost options based on individual needs. For more information, visit

Healthy Dining offers a team of nutrition professionals, registered dietitians and a doctoral-level researcher to provide nutrient analysis (calories, fat, sodium, etc.), allergen declaration, development of gluten-free menus and guidance in complying with menu labeling legislation.

Silliker offers expert laboratory, technical and information services to help companies comply with menu labeling requirements.
