About DASH-DIET-101

DASH-DIET-101 is created by Bhavya Bansal, Nikunj Bansal, Dhruv Sehgal, Yogita Gehani and Ayush Rai with a goal of building a model to detect food items that reduces Hypertension. It contains more than 16900 images of 101 popular food items. Reference: DASH: Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension.

Data collection

We used search engines (Google and Bing) to crawl and look for suitable images using JavaScript queries for each food item from the list created. The images with incomplete RGB channels were removed, and the images collected from different search engines were compiled. When downloading images from search engines, many images were irrelevant to the purpose, especially the ones with a lot of text in them. We deployed the EAST text detector to segregate such images. Finally, a comprehensive manual inspection was conducted to ensure the relevancy of images in the dataset.
