For a project I need a data source, where I can find informations about ingredients like lactic acid or E 901. The needed information is if the searched ingredient can cause food allergies, is vegan, vegetarian, kosher, etc.
I could not find something like this in the last hour, only recipe information by name and/or barcode.
Use case: Check if a list of ingredients for a food will be suitable for people with dietary restrictions.

The ESHA Nutrition API is designed to simplify the integration of your application with ESHA’s extensive food database and nutritional standards. Rather than developing and maintaining your own nutrient database, you can rely on ESHA for high-quality source data.
How this works
When a user searches for a food item on your website or application, a list of selections meeting the search criteria is returned. The user selects the closest match, enters a quantity and measure, and adds the item to the list. From there, the user can view a nutrition breakdown of total Calories, Fat, Protein, and other nutrients.
With, developers can design an application that accesses the ESHA database and nutritional standards. The application can search over 100,000 foods, build a recipe or food intake with the results, analyze up to 80 nutrients in seconds, and view client nutrient recommendations expressed as DRIs, DGAs, or RDIs.
Our database boasts over 100,000 unique foods, including raw ingredients, recipes, manufacturers’ foods, processing items, more.
Analyze foods for up to 80 nutrients and nutrient factors – everything from Calories and Fats to MyPlate values.
You can analyze dietary intakes per nutritional recommendations specified by various standards such as DRI, DGA, and RDI.
This API provides you with tools to find nutrition and diet data for generic foods, packaged foods, and restaurant meals. In addition, it employs NLP (Natural Language Processing) which allows for the extraction of food entities from unstructured text.
