Edamam Nutrition Analysis API Overview

Full recipe nutrition analysis

Submit the full text of any recipe or ingredient list. Edamam will extract the full nutrition and ingredient data from the text. No more need to spend hours entering your recipes line by line. The nutrition analysis takes less than a second!

Text Analysis

Our Natural Language Processing engine allows for extraction of food named entities from text. We also allow for combined entity extraction with food database search. Once a text is submitted and entities are extracted our database is searched for additional food matches to the extracted entities.

Structured data and nutrition data output

Edamam returns detailed information for each ingredient line for the Recipe Analysis or for each text string for the Text Analysis. You can get information for the entire recipe as a whole or broken down automatically for each ingredient.

For each food (flour, eggs, flour etc.), Edamam returns data for calories, fats, carbohydrates, protein, cholesterol, sodium for a total of 28 macro and micronutrients.

All food nutrient data is enriched with diet, allergy and health labeling, as calculated by Edamam based on the food's ingredients. Vegan, Paleo, Gluten Free, Low-Sodium, Dairy Free are some of the 35+ claims generated automatically.

Low cost solution

Edamam provides free recipe nutrition analysis and text analysis with its basic plan for developers, startups and non-profits alike.

Enterprise customers are charged a very low monthly licensing fee for recipe analysis based on usage. Custom packages are also available.
