Announcing Product Ingredients Support

Swift on the heels of the New Year, Go-UPC is pleased to announce the latest addition to our product database — ingredients!

Users of Go-UPC's API and other product-data services have a diversity of needs, but support for ingredients has been among the most common requests we receive. On that note, we're excited to extend our database and tools to include ingredients as a standard field.

Find Ingredients for Food & Grocery, Health & Beauty, and More

Ingredients don't make sense for all products (like electronics), but for the industries and categories where they do, Go-UPC will now provide an ingredient-list whenever available. Here are a few examples:

Ingredients are available when searching for products on our website, via our JSON-based API, and from our Bulk Lookup Service.

And with the largest repository of product data from around the world, Go-UPC may be the single biggest source for ingredient information on earth.

More Features for 2024

As we look forward to another year of building the world's best resource for product information, we already have several additional features in the works. Here are a few: keyword search (the ability to search by product name and other attributes), reverse barcode-lookup, and new “structured” data fields (like weight, volume, container info, and more).

In case you missed it, some recent additions we announced here on our blog include support for both EAN-8 and GTIN-14 barcode formats.

Stay tuned and as always feel free to reach out if you have specific product-data needs; we're always looking for ideas and input.
