Branded Foods partnership - We partner with private food data pool providers, ILSI NA, GDSN and BHNRC to read published nutrient information offerings for branded foods published by the manufacturers into the Branded Foods Products Database, which is published through Food Data Central. The data is extracted, transformed and loaded from the data pool providers into a normalized format for nutritional analysis meeting with data quality standards. The database contains over 300,000 items of branded food, and is adding items monthly. The Branded Foods Database is the highest traffic API on data.gov.
