Yummly API & Data Access

Unofficial | 👉 Official Yummly Website: https://www.yummly.com | 👥 Contributors: steve


These are unofficial Yummly API endpoints useful for scraping public data such as recipes, nutrition information and food blogs. These endpoints are made available for unofficial use and experimentation, such as for security research, use at your own risk!

These endpoints were uncovered from Yummly’s mobile app using MITM proxy interception, meaning that these endpoints are unlikely to change too much as mobile clients tend to stick around in the wild for a while. Hence, it should be safe to assume these won’t change too much over the next few years.

Rate Limiting

Please be considerate when requesting data through these endpoints or Yummly may block your requesting IP address. We don’t recommend exceeding one request per second per proxy.

Read Only

These endpoints are “read only” and only allow you to scrape data.

Official API

There is no known officially supported API for Yummly.
