Yummly Launches API for Developers to Create Innovative Food and Recipe Apps

Janet Wagner, March 26th, 2013

YummlyYummly, a fast growing food website and recipe search platform, has announced the launch of the Yummly API which allows developers to incorporate recipe data and search functionality into third-party applications and websites.


The Yummly API provides developers access to over 1 million recipes, over 100k food classifications and over 10 billion recipe data points as well as recipe/food search functionality.

Search engine DuckDuckGo is already using the Yummly API for recipe and food-related instant answers. Founder and CEO of DuckDuckGo, Gabriel Weinberg, is quoted in the press release about working with Yummly:

“As a general purpose search engine, DuckDuckGo is excited to work with Yummly to provide our users with excellent recipe and food-related instant answers. Yummly’s semantic search technology provides direct links to relevant and compelling food and recipe results for our users, making for a great recipe search user experience on DuckDuckGo.”

In the press release, Yummly offers website and third-party application developers suggestions for potential uses of the Yummly API such as weight loss tracking, allergy information, shopping information, food branding, social apps and much more.

At the time of this writing, there are commercial and non-commercial plans available. Commercial plans include a 14-day free trial period. For more information, visit the Yummly Developer Website.
