About IndianFoodNet-30

IndianFoodNet-30 is created by Ritu Agarwal, Nikunj Bansal, Tanupriya Choudhury, Tanmay Sarkar & Neelu Jyothi Ahuja with a goal of building an Indian Food detection model. It contains more than 5500 images of 30 popular Indian food items.

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.
