Looks like HTTPS isn’t configured yet for the API, is that correct? When I try prepending https instead of http to the demo request, I get this in Chrome:

This is probably not the site you are looking for!
You attempted to reach api.nutritionix.com, but instead you actually reached a server identifying itself as *.herokuapp.com. This may be caused by a misconfiguration on the server or by something more serious. An attacker on your network could be trying to get you to visit a fake (and potentially harmful) version of api.nutritionix.com.

Hi Randy,

Thanks for bringing this up. Let me check into getting HTTPS support, enabled. I will update this thread shortly.

Hi Randy,

Just checked with the dev team, and we currently do not support HTTPS on the free API, but we do include it on the paid API plans. Can you let me know any more details about whether your specific use-case requires HTTPS for your app to work?
