As consumers become more health-conscious, they want to know more about the content of the food they are putting into their bodies. When a shopper goes to the store, the customer can find information about products on nutrition labels. A nutrition API is an online collection of food-related data that developers can access their apps and websites.
Every food item is building blocks, such as carbohydrates, minerals, and vitamins. Nutrition information is the breakdown of this content. At a basic level, this data will include food calorie counts and macronutrient information. An advanced break down will have greater detail. For example, nutrition facts will not only tell the amount of protein in a food, but it will also give the various types of proteins.
Most countries require producers to provide nutrition information about their foods. A nutrition facts API acts as a container for information from thousands of products. When an application sends a GET request to the API, it returns the nutrition information about a given product. Food database APIs like Nutrionix allow developers to link scans of products UPCs to the API.
The two main markets for nutrition APIs are food industry apps and health and wellness apps. Food calorie counting has long been a staple of diet programs. With a food nutrition API like Chomp users can get quick information about the caloric content of thousands of products.
Other APIs focus on the nutritional content of recipes. Restaurants that want to share health information with their patrons can POST new recipes using the Webknox Recipe API. Home chefs who want to prepare healthy meals can use a food nutrition API to check whether or not their menu keeps them on track.
Diet and exercise shape a healthy lifestyle. More and more, medical professionals are encouraging patients to focus on diet for long-term health. An app linked to a nutrition API helps people meet those goals.
For APIs that focus on nutrition, the information provided is similar to what a user might find on a detailed nutrition label on food packaging. Recipe-centered APIs include ingredients and instructions for home-cooked meals as well as a nutritional breakdown of the ingredients.
Much of the information found in food nutrition APIs is in the public sphere, so many of these databases offer free or freemium services. The US government’s USDA Food Composition Databases API is free for public use but limits the number of requests per hour. The Edamam Nutrition API has a free introductory plan for developers that make few requests. A paid plan grants more calls and gives access to more support and detailed information.
All Nutrition APIs are supported and made available in multiple developer programming languages and SDKs including:
