FatSecret was founded in 2007 with the mission to empower people to make healthy food and nutrition habits for life.
Because everyone deserves to live their best life possible
We initially started building consumer facing websites and later mobile apps to help people keep track of their dietary intake, exercise and weight to achieve their nutrition and weight loss goals by utilizing intuitive and easy-to-use tools.
While expanding our reach across the globe, we were constantly faced with the same problem of not being able to access reliable and verified nutrition information which is why we developed processes and systems to collect, structure, verify, update and store nutrition content globally. This would later allow us to curate and make available verified food and nutrition data through our dedicated food and nutrition API offering.
Where we are now
With over 15 years of industry experience and a team of 30+ dedicated dietitians, nutritionists, developers, content managers and data and analytics specialists, FatSecret created the FatSecret Platform which includes the FatSecret Platform API and FatSecret Brand Tools.
With more than 30,000 developers utilizing the service, the FatSecret Platform API has grown to become the leading provider of verified food and nutrition data globally through our API to health related programs, mobile apps/web services and integrated fitness devices.
Our food and nutrition API is available in 23 languages for more than 55 countries covering generic foods, branded and supermarket products as well as restaurant items and recipes.
We work closely with more than 150 corporate and multinational customers as well as Universities, government agencies, research institutes and medical associations while also supporting the efforts of independent developers, researchers, start-ups and the non-profit sector.
