Food Companies Cook Up Innovation With The FoodPairing API

May 2nd, 2016 |

The Foodpairing API provides food and drink pairing information, generates new recipes, and offers substitutions based on the science of how humans perceive flavor. This allows food companies and food tech startups to customize their products by local taste or season and to discover unexpectedly awesome new flavor combinations.

With data available for over 1500 ingredients, Foodpairing offers culinary information on everything from ordinary grocery store fare such as dairy, meat, and vegetables to spices, spirits, coffees, and even insects. The Foodpairing team has traveled the world in search of local products and uncommon ingredients, then analyzed them from a scientific perspective. The results not only confirm traditional pairings that we know and love but reveal surprising new combinations you might not have thought of yourself. For example, you probably already enjoy strawberries with chocolate. But did you know that strawberries also taste great with parmesan or basil?
