The FatSecret iOS library by Parker Wightman was designed keeping the FatSecret API in mind. With instructions for installation and usage, this library offers Food Search and Get Food as the main code libraries for iOS. FatSecret API has the capacity to access food, nutrition, and recipe databases with the goal to improve the development of mobile apps.
