Nutritionix

It’s not often we get to announce an API partnership that can directly improve your health and wellbeing.  Mashape is excited to have Nutritionix, the largest branded food database in the world, join our community.

Nutritionix is a search engine and database for nutrition information.  With over 300,000 unique food items you can browse or search by restaurants, as well as query specific food types to find nutritional information.

The Nutritionix API allows you to access and integrate the functionality and data of Nutritionix to create new applications.  The API provides nutritional facts to over 230,000 UPCs/barcodes, 100,000 restaurant menu items, and 10,000 common foods from the USDA.

We’re excited to have Nutritionix part of our community.  So what are you waiting for?  Go out there and make the next incredible health and fitness app.
