Säsongmat API

The service provides Swedish-language content about seasonal availability of foods in Sweden and the region. When foods are naturally available, they can be supplied with the least environmental impact while they are also least expensive and quality is highest. The service seeks to help consumers to maximize their uses of seasonally products by giving access to a database of foods and sources. API methods support retrieval of content on raw (unprocessed) food products specified by name, EAN-13 bar code, or PLU code. Methods also allow specification of a region where foods are grown, harvested, or produced. Methods also allow applications to update the database with new information about food products. A plug-in for the WordPress blogging platform is available, and data can be retrieved with semantic markup.
