I love knowing what nutrients a recipe has. It makes controlling my caloric intake possible!
Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 09, 2014
“Nutrition Wizard”, a website service that instantly analyzes the nutritional content of a recipe, was featured on NewsWatch as part of its popular segment, HealthWatch, which took a look at the latest medical products and services available to consumers. Susan Bridges, the host of NewsWatch and a medical expert, conducted the review and explained to viewers how it can help them eat more healthily and gain control of the ingredients they use in recipes.
Cooking at home allows consumers to control the ingredients and how they’re cooked. With thousands of recipes to choose from, consumers can eat nearly any meal they want. The problem with recipes and cooking on the fly is home chefs don’t know the exact nutritional information of what they’re putting into their body.
Edamam.com has created the technology to take any recipe and analyze instantly its nutritional content, from calories to protein to cholesterol and minerals. Best of all, the technology understands natural language so consumers can enter a recipe the way they speak or copy and paste it from somewhere else. It will also understand things like “salt and pepper to taste” and calculate the amount of oil absorbed when frying something.
The nutrient data comes from the USDA and Edamam’s own analysis. Nutrition Wizard offers a two week trail, then $2.95 a month after that.
