The spoonacular Nutrition, Recipe, and Food API allows you to access over 365,000 recipes and 86,000 food products. Our food ontology and semantic recipe search engine makes it possible to search for recipes using natural language queries, such as "gluten free brownies without sugar" or "low fat vegan cupcakes." You can automatically calculate the nutritional information for any recipe, analyze recipe costs, visualize ingredient lists, find recipes for what's in your fridge, find recipes based on special diets, nutritional requirements, or favorite ingredients, classify recipes into types and cuisines, convert ingredient amounts, or even compute an entire meal plan. With our powerful API, you can create many kinds of food and especially nutrition apps. Special diets/dietary requirements currently available include: vegan, vegetarian, pescetarian, gluten free, grain free, dairy free, high protein, low sodium, low carb, Paleo, Primal, ketogenic, FODMAP, and Whole 30. We will soon be adding Weight Watcher points, too.
This API provides you with tools to find nutrition and diet data for generic foods, packaged foods and restaurant meals. In addition it employs NLP (Natural Language Processing) which allows for extraction of food entities from unstructured text. Covered Use Cases: Search for a food by keyword, food name or UPC/Barcode Sourcing of nutrition facts for a given food, including: macro and micro nutrients, allergen labels, lifestyle and health labels Search for a food by given nutrient quantity for 28 nutrients Seach for foods within a given brand With the build in food-logging context it allows for NLP requests for chat bots and natural language calorie counters

Purchasing food at a grocery store is something most people do at least once a week. For consumers who like to plan their food run or search for the best deal, online applications can be a big help. Shoppers use websites to see what is on sale, search for coupons, plan menus, and write shopping lists. When a developer is creating a website or application focused on groceries or grocery stores, the project will make a connection to a grocery API.
What is a grocery API?
A grocery API is an online database with information about grocery stores and their products. There are many aspects to the food distribution industry. Some APIs related to this industry focus on food. With a resource like the Good Foods API, a user can access nutrition information about products by searching bar codes. Price is another factor. The Grocerybear API provides comparison data for the same products at stores in several cities.
When a connected application sends a GET request to the API, the database sends back the requested information in JSON or XML format. Food-related APIs will let the user search by product or product category. A grocery store database has information about individual locations of a store chain. A grocery delivery API may deliver information about drivers or subscribers to the service.
There are many avenues for creating grocery-related applications that would call on an API. A developer might be working on a commercial application for a grocery chain to use internally. Consumer applications could revolve around price searches, nutrition information, or locating unusual ingredients. Health and wellness applications might also use a grocery store API to help users choose products that encourage healthy eating habits.
Everyone must eat, and groceries take up a big piece of the weekly budget of most homes. Grocery delivery APIs make it easier for people with mobility issues to get the food they need. Grocery price applications help families with lower incomes get the most from their shopping runs.
With an approved connection, these APIs will give developers access to data about food products and grocery store locations. A grocery delivery API may have information about a delivery service’s client base and orders. A client’s application will POST the order to the API where the delivery service can find the information to gather the items and make the delivery.
Many foods and nutrition APIs such as the Edamam API list information that is publicly available, so they offer access at no charge or have a freemium package for applications that make less frequent requests. Because grocery delivery APIs often have private client information, they may not be publicly available or will require a charge for use.
|API||Popularity Score||Latency||Success Rate|

Most online grocery e-commerce websites have private APIs (that means, APIs that are not explicit to the public or to developers in general).
These are used mostly to exchange price and product information with Price Comparison Tools, that have to have access to real-time data to be able to inform the correct prices for every store at their websites.
Consider using the APIs in this collection instead for your grocery store API needs.
Most APIs will return a JSON (and sometimes an XML) response.
