Spoonacular API

Spoonacular API

The spoonacular Nutrition, Recipe, and Food API allows you to access over 365,000 recipes and 86,000 food products.

The spoonacular Nutrition, Recipe, and Food API allows you to access over 365,000 recipes and 86,000 food products. Our food ontology and semantic recipe search engine makes it possible to search for recipes using natural language queries, such as “gluten free brownies without sugar” or “low fat vegan cupcakes.” You can automatically calculate the nutritional information for any recipe, analyze recipe costs, visualize ingredient lists, find recipes for what’s in your fridge, find recipes based on special diets, nutritional requirements, or favorite ingredients, classify recipes into types and cuisines, convert ingredient amounts, or even compute an entire meal plan. With our powerful API, you can create many kinds of food and especially nutrition apps.

Special diets/dietary requirements currently available include: vegan, vegetarian, pescetarian, gluten free, grain free, dairy free, high protein, low sodium, low carb, Paleo, Primal, ketogenic, FODMAP, and Whole 30. We will soon be adding Weight Watcher points, too.

Special Diets/Intolerances

We automatically analyze recipes to check for ingredients that contain common allergens, such as wheat, dairy, eggs, soy, nuts, etc. We also determine whether a recipe is vegan, vegetarian, Paleo friendly, Whole30 compliant, and more.

Nutritional Information

We compute the nutritional information for recipes automatically using a proprietary algorithm. With this information, you can find individual recipes or even create entire meal plans that satisfy your users' dietary goals.

Search & Organize

We make it easy to add a recipe search to your app or website - and not just any recipe search. Our semantic search is fast, accurate, and pretty darn smart. "Gluten free nut free dessert without apples"? Easy as pie. Or create your own recipe manager without making your users create tons of tags to find what they're looking for next time. It's all possible.

Have your own recipe database? Great! Let us help you get it under control. With our API, your users will be able to find the recipes they want.

Plan your meals

Let your users plan their meals for the week using recipes or even your own brand of packaged foods. The daily nutritional information is calculated automatically.

Get your shopping list

Once your users are done meal planning, they can get their shopping list in a click of the mouse.

Shoppable Recipes

Finally! An all-in-one solution for cooking at home. Your users can pick their recipes and order all the ingredients from an online grocer to have everything delivered or ready for pickup.

Display recipes to inspire visitors when they browse your own packaged foods (whether dips, sauces, pickles, wraps, you name it!) Show them what they can make, and they'll be more likely to purchase.
