— Mory Bahar, CEO of Personal Remedies

NEW YORK, NY, USA, May 1, 2019 / -- Personal Remedies is delighted to announce a licensing contract for its newly announced industry standard API (Application Programming Interface) with Edamam, the leading global supplier of nutrient data on millions of recipes.

The new collaboration provides Edamam team access to the PR knowledgebase. PR knowledgebase is the product of an AI-based technology that can capture, aggregate, analyze and summarize latest research and science available on various nutrients and food items as they relate to hundreds of illnesses and health issues. The PR patented software and algorithms can determine helpfulness and harmfulness of thousands of nutrients, common food items and ingredients, as they relate to chronic illnesses, allergies, diets, medications and health risks.

Edamam currently maintains nutrient data on over three million recipes and 700,000 foods, and has been providing meal recommendation and nutrition analysis solutions to numerous organizations worldwide, including industry leaders such as Nestle, Amazon and Food Network. By incorporating Personal Remedies’ assessment of various ingredients into Edamam knowledgebase, Edamam will be able to identify the most helpful (and harmful) recipes for an individual based on their unique health concerns and goals.

“Capturing and representing knowledge about nutrition and its impact on prevention, management or reversal of illnesses is an extremely complicated and challenging task”, says Victor Penev, CEO of Edamam. “We feel that Personal Remedies and its team of scientists and healthcare professionals have been able to meet this challenge.”
“Through their customers and licensees, Edamam team has been helping millions of individuals make intelligent choices in their daily diet. Together, we can expand our reach, and tackle the chronic illness crisis with the most effective and the safest approach – proper dietary and lifestyle choices.” says Mory Bahar, CEO of Personal Remedies. “There is no such thing as a healthy recipe. It all depends on the consumer’s personal situation.”

Personal Remedies and Edamam are both members of the Global Army of Health Transformers in StartUp Health Academy.
