Semantic technology company Edamam launched today two new APIs, providing data-driven, cloud-based nutrition solutions for businesses in the food, health and wellness sectors.
The Nutrition Analysis and Recipe Search APIs are business ready. They provide “real-time analysis of any recipe or ingredient list with detailed information for over 30 nutrients and nutrition claims for more than 20 major diets, such as vegan, paleo and gluten-free.”
Drawing from over 500 of the top food sites in the English web, Edamam’s Recipe Search API builds on their semantically organized database of 1.5 million nutritionally tagged and analyzed recipes and provides results for high quality recipes that fit a particular diet need or calorie requirement.
Among the current users of Edamam’s API solutions are Epicurious, Random House and Gannett.
“The Nutrition Analysis and Recipe Search APIs will open our unmatched, ground-breaking technology to a wide range of businesses at very affordable prices,” added Victor Penev, Edamam’s Founder and CEO.
