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 libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
