The United States' Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is the nation's regulatory body for food and drug products. The administration reviews new products as well as oversees the management of food related issues around the country.
The openFDA API provides publicly accessible data from the FDA about three subjects: drugs, devices, and foods. This API is currently a beta research project and the results unvalidated. The data is Public Domain released from Creative Commons CC0. Results are returned as JSON. An API key is required and is free.
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
