In an interesting approach to food science, IBM has come up with a new method to create food pairings. Strides in food science are being made by utilizing large databases with math and chemistry. The algorithm includes five steps total. For example, an unexpected food pairing is hot dogs and peanut butter, which has become surprisingly popular.
Some healthier alternatives for food pairings are beets and chickpeas, red wine and almonds along with green tea and lemon. Food pairings have no limit and IBM’s new algorithm could be used to find recipes that have yet to be discovered.
