Edamam’s Powerful Semantic Technology to Provide Nutritional Profiling and Labeling
New York, NY (PRWEB) February 05, 2013
Edamam, a company with a mission to help people eat better, today announced it will be powering the nutritional information for all the recipes on TheDailyMeal.com, the fastest-growing culinary site of all time.
Edamam will use its advanced semantic technology to analyze and provide a full nutritional profile, as well as health and diet labels for each recipe to The Daily Meal readers.
“As one of the premium online destinations for quality information surrounding all things food and drink, The Daily Meal needed a way to organize and incorporate nutritional labeling for an ever growing database of recipes,” said Victor Penev of Edamam. “Our semantic technology helped solve the problem.”
Edamam’s technology allows readers of The Daily Meal as well as users of its own applications to select recipes based on a specific diet or health concern. Vegan, Gluten-free and Low-Sodium are some of the popular options today’s health conscious consumer looks for and appreciates.
Incorporating nutritional data is one of many developments The Daily Meal has prioritized after experiencing a record 300% growth in 2012,” said Jim Spanfeller, CEO of Spanfeller Media Group, parent corporation to The Daily Meal.” Integrating Edamam’s semantic technology into the site will make our offering more comprehensive for readers striving to make healthy choices in the kitchen.”
