New Recipe App: Edamam

Shimmy (Founder and CEO of was at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference this past week and came across a cool app called, Edamam.  The app aggregates recipes from all over the net, allowing you to search by various nutritional criteria, including calories, daily value, servings, fat, carbs, protein, and cholesterol.  You can filter recipes by calories/servings, and certain nutritional parameters, such as gluten or dairy-free and high-fiber.  It also allows you to take a look at ingredients needed for the recipe with simple check-off boxes next to the item – convenient when buying and/or using ingredients.  For the actual recipe instructions, Edamam has yet to integrate them; however, click on an image and Edamam directs you to the original website from which the recipe was derived.  As the app progresses, I can see it becoming a smarter way to buy and cook foods.  It is available at iTunes.
