How does the Foodpairing Tool work?

Have you ever asked yourself why some ingredients pair incredibly well, and others don’t? In fact food products and drinks go well together if they have important aromas in common. The Foodpairing Tool allows you to find pairings, based on their aromatic matches, in just a few clicks.

'World's biggest ingredient database'

At, you can look around in a database containing more than 1,700 analysed products. You can compare all of these products and find interesting pairs. You'll find some classics you might know, but also innovative and novel flavor combinations! From herbs to dairy products, from meat to fish, from local to exotic products – using the filters, you can easily search for your favourite products. Choose your Main ingredient and step-by-step the system will suggest possible pairings. A world of new flavor combinations is waiting for you to be explored!
