Daily API RoundUp: Chomp, BlockMarkets, Unofficial Fornite, FunFund

Every day, the ProgrammableWeb team is busy, updating its three primary directories for APIs, clients (language-specific libraries or SDKs for consuming or providing APIs), and source code samples. If you have new APIs, clients, or Source Code examples to add to ProgrammableWeb's directories, we offer forms (APIs, Clients, Source Code) for submitting them to our API research team. If there's a listing in one of our directories that you'd like to claim as the owner, please contact us at editor@programmableweb.com.

Seven APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Cryptocurrency, Chat and Funding. One highlight is an API that provides programmatic access to a huge database of nutritional information for ingredients and products. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.


Chomp is a Food Nutrition Database API that provides access to nutritional data on over 500,000 food products. The Chomp API enables developers to programmatically access nutrition labels, ingredients, trace ingredients, allergen warnings, product images, barcodes, and more. The service provides a "Product List Builder" to generate a customized list of products that match inputted search terms. A customer could use this to retrieve data for all products in the United States that include cheese ingredients, organic products that include a nut allergen, plant based products that include vitamin B6, etc. The Chomp API is listed under the Nutrition category.
