The large chain restaurants are required but smaller restaurants with constantly changing menus are exempted. The dificulty is that although you and I can approximate the nutritional value of our meals, restaurants must be exact and must use outside testing services. That means two things. It is cost prohibitive for small businesses and it means that the process for making the meals must be exacting and precise; no dashes, no seasoning to taste and fewer fresh ingrediants that can vary in content.
