[Editor's Note: This API is no longer available. It has been replaced by the USDA FoodData Central API.]
Use the National Nutrient Database API to access USDA data on food nutrients. The REST API returns responses in JSON or XML and requires an API Key. Calls to the API are limited to 1,000 per hour, but the data is free and open to the public for use. Use the National Nutrient Database to generate nutrient reports, get lists of products by nutrient or food group, or search for a specific food product.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
