Why information about ingredients are important


There is growing demand to access reliable information about product composition for both health and ethical reasons. There are, however, no tools available to supply this information.


It is estimated that about 60% of people around the world could suffer from  food Intolerance or food related inflammation.

Ethics and Religion

Many others follow religious or weight based diets and people are increasingly becoming aware that the way we eat is one of the primary sources of many health problems and at the same time the primary tool for well-being.


Built by an expert team of nutritionists, semantic engineers and computer scientists, the Klappo platform offers the most granular information available about foods, ingredients, products and recipes for building nutrition and recipe-based apps.

Klappo uses semantics to add new layers of intelligence to food data. With Klappo, innovative food suppliers and app developers have the most comprehensive platform from which they can quickly and accurately create relevant tools for consumers to make informed decisions about food.
