January 6, 2011 – Yummly, ostensibly the world’s first semantic recipe search engine, brings together and understands recipes from all over the web. This new tool is designed to help people meet their nutritional and weight loss goals by making it easy to adopt and maintain healthy eating habits in 2011 and beyond.

PR-USA brought this appetizing information to our attention in their post, “Happy New You: Yummly Has the Tools to Help People Achieve Their New Year’s Resolutions for Health.” Yummly’s user interface allows users to search from more than 500,000 recipes collected from leading cooking sites based on their dietary, nutritional or taste preferences. Yummly is fully integrated with Facebook. Its feature-rich platform is free and simple to use. Founded in 2009 by foodies on a mission to invent a better way to find, modify, share and store recipes with a goal of better health.

Nice to see a practical and tasty use for semantic technology in the average day for the average lay person.
