ESHA's Nutrition Database API provides an interface between your website or application to their cloud-hosted food & nutrition database.
When a user searches for a food item on your website or app, a list of selections meeting the search criteria is returned. The user selects the closest match, selects a quantity and measure, and adds the item to the list. From there, the user can view a nutrition breakdown of total Calories, Fat, Protein, and other nutrients. Results reflect varying available forms and products (fresh, frozen, packaged, etc.)
ESHA's database includes a wide range of ingredients with generic and brand name foods. ESHA's data is compiled from a variety of reputable sources including the latest USDA Standard Reference database, manufacturer's data, and data from restaurants. Information is based on frequently updated submissions from more than 200 suppliers.
All data that ESHA collects is run through a quality-check process including verification of all data sources, electronic mathematical verifications, and review by our research team to ensure accuracy and integrity. Sources are contacted to reconcile any questionable data. Data that cannot be reconciled is not added to the database.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically,
once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change.
As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset,
we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all
activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb.
If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way,
the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
