Foodily Unleashes 'Secret Weapon': Nutrition Info For Recipes
Foodily's recipes are culled from multiple web sources, ranging from blogs to newspapers to magazines. By integrating the USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference, now Foodily offers information about total calories, calories per gram, saturated fat, unsaturated fat, carbohydrates, sugar, protein, cholesterol, sodium and fiber.
While including nutritional information is nothing new for recipe sites, Foodily details if the total fat is low, medium or high and also allows users to search for low carb or high fiber options.
One of Foodily's aims is to create the "Google of food" so we put it to the test. Our search for low-fat ramps recipes with no garlic yielded two results and high-fiber salmon with no gluten yielded eight recipes. We stumped them with low-carb bread, however. Perhaps we weren't really playing fair.
