Cost of Restaurant Nutrition Analysis

A newspaper article and editorial cite the cost for nutrition analysis per restaurant menu item at up to $5,000, based on restaurant group estimates.


It is also possible to pay $1000 for a hamburger, but that is not the going/ typical rate. We don’t know of any nutrition analysis that costs more than $900 per menu item, and that is for chemical analysis (where a lab analyzes an actual sample of each dish), which is not usually necessary. Most menu items can be analyzed with database software, and the price to have a reputable service do this ranges from about $50 to $200, depending on number and complexity of ingredients and bulk discounts for large menus. See our Food Startup/Tune-up Kit for some of the do-it-yourself options, in addition to our in-house service at Palate Works.
