LogMeal API is capable of providing nutritional information about a meal by simply taking a picture. It detects either if in the image there is prepared food, a drink, a fresh fruit or vegetable or a sauce. Additionally, we can detect if the picture does not contain any kind of food. This feature is perfect for large-scale image data processing and categorization. The detailed list of food types available are:
