APILayer and Edamam Launch API Partnership

11 May, 2022

(New York, USA - XX February 2022, APILayer, owned by Austin-based B2B software company Idera. Inc., today announced a joint go-to-market partnership with Edamam that leads to the launch of three APIs that will revolutionize accessibility to nutrition data and analytics for developers: Nutrition Analysis API, Food Database API, and Recipe Search API.

The Nutrition Analysis API provides the most advanced nutrition analysis technology available to do real-time nutrition analysis of any food, recipe or ingredient list. The Food Database API helps you find generic, CPG and restaurant foods. The Recipe Search API allows for diet, allergen and nutrient driven search from a database of over 5 million recipes in English.

Integrating these three APIs from Edamam into one API product by APILayer allows developers and companies to easily incorporate nutrition analysis and food data into their software or websites.

Food is fundamental to life and health. Knowing the nutrient, allergen and diet profile of foods and recipes is a key element to building a healthy lifestyle and should be accessible to individuals. However, trying to understand nutrition, food ingredients and recipes and how food affects health can be very confusing. Different sources may provide different information, most of which is hard to verify as accurate.

"The collaboration with Edamam will take a lot of the guesswork out of this process by integrating all the best nutrition, recipe, and food data and resources into one simple API that users can trust. The partnership allows us to provide developers with powerful nutrition analysis and personalized meal recommendation technology", said ApiLayer GM, John Burr.

By utilizing Edamam's Nutrition Analysis API, Apilayer's clients will have access to valuable nutrition and ingredient data when creating user-generated recipes, personalized nutrition apps, or any other application needing detailed and accurate nutritional information.

"We see the partnership with ApiLayer as a way to provide ever more developers with the tools to build nutrition, diet, and recipes applications or experiences," said Victor Penev, Edamam’s CEO and founder. "ApiLayer is a great partner, as they are focused on helping companies utilize APIs. We believe it will be very convenient for developers who have already integrated ApiLayer into their projects," added Penev
