Use Cases For Edamam’s API’s

Recipe Licensing for Chronic Condition Management

Use case

Health and wellness apps often need to have recipes as part of their solution. If this is your case you need full recipes with image, instructions and nutrition which you can keep locally. While Edamam’s Recipe Search API provides a low-cost meal recommendation option it requires outgoing link to the original recipe and there might be some concerns related to this. Licensing recipe content is the best choice.

Edamam’s solution

Now you can license a subset of recipes from top properties which Edamam has partnered with – like America’s Test Kitchen, Chicago Tribune, The Daily Meal and many more. Each recipe comes with full instructions, great image from our partners and detailed nutrition provided by Edamam.
You can select the exact recipes you need by cuisine, meal type, dish type, nutrition profile or diet/allergy.
