Else Labs develops autonomous kitchen appliances with a unique patented technology which fully automates the cooking process removing the need for an individual or culinary team while producing consistent and high-quality meals.
“We created Oliver to provide people with an autonomous cooking experience, producing high-quality, nutritious meals. Now, with how food and technology are intersecting, the need for transparent nutritional data has become critical. Our partnership with Edamam was the right strategic choice for us to ensure delivery of our holistic approach for the distribution of nutritional information for Oliver made meals,” commented Khalid Aboujassoum, Else Labs’ Founder and CEO.
Else Labs submits its recipes to Edamam’s nutrition analysis engine and uses the returned nutritional data by displaying it in the Oliver App. The key information is shared per serving size, based on the Canadian Nutritional guide: Calories, Carbs, Fat, Protein. Additionally, Else Labs uses allergen and diet tags produced by Edamam. The Edamam data is key and very valuable for users when selecting a recipe for Oliver to cook.
“Oliver shows how the data produced by Edamam can meaningfully be leveraged by both professional and home chefs. We believe the smart kitchen space is on a growth trajectory and that recipe and food and data will be indispensable for all connected smart kitchen appliances,” added Victor Penev, Edamam’s Founder and CEO.
Edamam’s Nutrition Analysis API allows companies such as Else Labs to analyze quickly and affordably large numbers of recipes. It produces full nutritional analysis, providing per serving and on a recipe level information about all macronutrients, micronutrients, applicable diets, allergens and other relevant data points, such as meal type, dish type, cuisine, glycemic index and more. Companies using Edamam for nutrition data include The New York Times, Hearst, America’s Test Kitchen, and The Food Network.
