Food E-Additives Recognition API

Food E-Additives Recognition API - FoodEs is a cross browsers REST API which get a JSON input with a still photo (as base64 encoded string), containing food label with E-Additives codes like E100, E200 etc. and returns a JSON string which contains details of the eCodes detected and recognized in the label or input text. Those details include: name of the E-Additive, categories in which the E-Additive is used, restrictions or limitations of the E-Additive for each category of food. Of course, there are some limitations in order to get a higher accuracy. We recommend properly exposed, unobstructed JPEG photos at 1920x1080 (full HD resolution) where ratio between height of the eCode and height of entire picture should be at least 1:15. For ratios like 1:16, 1:17, 1:18 and so on the accuracy is lower and the AI algorithm may not see and read the eCode. We do not store pictures.

Allthough this Food E-Additives Detection API (currently we do not offer a Food E-Additives Recognition sdk) is intended for software development and therefore developers, we have also here a Food E-Additives Recognition online application that may be used to check the input and output JSONs of the API. The necessary steps are written below, basically for this real time Food E-Additives Recognition API you send an authorized POST request in JSON format to the API endpoint and you get as JSON response the output as described below through parameters and examples.

This Food E-Additives Detection API is useful for a large number of domains like: food processors, retailers, customers, IT developers etc. You own the commercial copyright of the resulted JSON with no additional fee meaning you may use it in your own apps for sale.

For using our Food E-Additives Recognition API and/or APP you must create an account (free of charge, no card required), activate it from your received email, login and then start your TRIAL package with no fees as you can see at our pricing packages. After you have tested the API and/or APP and you are satisfied, you may buy a paid package. You will always see at your Admin Console page the real resources consumption in real time, your invoices, you may see/edit/delete your profile or export log consents as GDPR instructed, you may read our FAQs.
