Nutritional Data Count

  1. I notice that you have the nutritional data (Calories, Total Fat, Dietary Fiber, Sodium, etc) on the mobile demo but this data does not appear anywhere in your API. Can you please update your documentation or FAQ on where we can find this data?

    The nutritional data can be gleaned from using the 'labelarray' method. Just set the resultsize to 1, and you're in business. It does seem odd that the 'label' method does not return this data.

    Thanks William! You can also use the 'productscore' method which will retrieve just the UPC you query with the nutritional data you've selected in the dietary profile. There's are now illustrated examples of both on our Getting Started page:

    Hi dlutger

    Do you mean nutritional data can be got from the method of retrieving UPC barcode data?

  5. dlutger4 years ago

    Hi jamescms, It can be gotten with either labelarray or productscore method. There are illustrated examples for both:
