I am using an API that provides a load of nutritional information for food, for example calories, protein, etc. However what it does not provide is any sort of categorization of that food. Can anyone recommend a database or API, free or paid, that would allow me to match food names to general categories (like meat, fruit, vegetable, etc)? I am thinking if this is not in the food-database related space perhaps it's in some kind of text processing or NLP library I might not be familiar with?
Thanks for any suggestions!
