The CalorieNinjas API is a natural language API that can extract nutrition data from any text or image of text. Input text such as "Last night we ordered a 14oz prime rib and a glass of chardonnay" and the JSON response will contain amount of calories, protein, cholesterol, fats, sugars, carbohydrates and other nutritional information. The API may also return nutritional information from an image.
Six APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Nutrition, Cryptocurrency and Payments. Highlights include an API that returns data from thousands of restaurant menus and an API that provides astronomical data. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
