Food Calories

Description

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>
</unitPreferences>

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