Food Calories

Reported by: Christoph Päper <christoph.paeper@…> Owned by: anybody
Component: supplemental Data Locale:
Phase: dsub Review:
Weeks: Data Xpath:


It is true that in nutrition information and diets, calories are often still used even in otherwise fully metric countries, but in formal situations, kilojoules are always listed as well. I haven't seen alt="formal" yet, only alt="informal", thus I assume the following would be more appropriate as a default:

<unitPreferences category="energy" usage="food">
  <unitPreference regions="001">kilojoule</unitPreference>
  <unitPreference regions="001" alt="informal">foodcalorie</unitPreference>
  <unitPreference regions="US">foodcalorie</unitPreference>

PS: This probably applies to usage="person-usage" as well, although the unit there is kilocalorie (which is hardly ever distinguished from foodcalorie).
