**Restaurant menu price inflation hit a 39-year high last month as high costs for food and labor continue.
Restaurant Business, a commercial foodservice industry publication, reports limited-service restaurant prices rose 7.9%, while full-service increased 6%.
Several factors contribute to the inflation, but a dramatic spike in wages is the top issue, up 14% this year, nearly three times the overall rate of inflation, according to Restaurant Business company Technomic.
**Adding cooked black beans to a high-fat diet improved sensitivity to insulin and other measures often related to diabetes, according to a study by USDA’s Ag Research Service.
As little as a half cup single serving a day of black beans lowered insulin resistance 87%.
A USDA researcher says, “This research suggests that eating
even a small amount of black beans can have multiple health benefits.”
