About Food APIs
Food and nutrition are an integral part of our lives. Health-conscious or not, everyone needs to eat to survive. From busy moms trying to feed their kids balanced meals to the calorie counters that want to know every micro and macronutrient in what they consume, a food API can help.
What is a Food API?
A food API connects a user’s application on their device to one of the many massive databases that contain food-related information. For example, some applications and their respective APIs can provide recipes or help a user create a custom cookbook. Others offer nutritional information for any food imaginable and the recipes created from them.
Of course, some food APIs are perfect for those who don’t feel like cooking, such as those that connect to food delivery services.
How does a Food API work?
Food APIs connect applications to a database on a server. When a user performs a search within the app, the API sends the request to the server. The returned information is formatted, usually in JSON or XML, and returned to the application. There, it is distributed into the proper arrangement for the app and presented to the user in an easily digested format.
Who can benefit from Food APIs?
Anyone interested in what they put into their body, learning how to cook, looking for particular recipes, or interested in trying new cuisines can benefit from food APIs and the applications that use them.
Developers can use food APIs to build customized dietary apps, pairing apps, and more. In addition, web admins can utilize the APIs to add functionality to their sites to reduce bounce rates and build large audiences.
Why are Food APIs necessary?
There are billions of points of data when it comes to food. From the micro and macronutrient content of individual foods to countless recipe combinations, wine pairings, and more, the possibilities for food APIs are endless.
What can you expect from a Food API?
A food API should provide clean and accurate results from a reputable source utilizing clean code.
