Frequently asked questions
How does it work?
To enable all of our features, Plant Jammer needed a super intelligent AI chef that can rapidly and easily build recipes that fit the ingredients available to you! In order to achieve this, we combine 3 different technologies:
We trained a neural network with 3 million recipes in order to build an “internet of food.” Each recipe is essentially a confirmation of a set of ingredients that go well together. The result is a “landscape of flavor” in which ingredients that tend to go well together are found close to one another.
Plant Jammer also recruited “human intelligence” by talking to professional chefs to develop the core components of good flavor (see the Gastro Wheel above). Our algorithm proposes an ingredient from each component in order to attain a great dish.
Lastly, Plant Jammer designed and built a modular approach to recipes. This allows you to pick ingredients while at the same time seeing our algorithm in action as it re-orders the ingredients in real time. The top ingredients being the best pairs with what you’ve already selected!
When combining these 3 technologies, the end result is a super flexible and easy to use “personal chef in your pocket!”
What exactly can the app do for me?
We have 4 amazing features in Plant Jammer:
- Empty Your Fridge: Select the ingredients you have in your fridge and pantry, then our algorithm builds some fantastic dishes for you to choose from.
- Inspirations: Get an INFINITE amount of inspirations for different types of dishes, choosing between regions, flavors and even nutritional themes such as protein rich, fibre rich, low glycemic loads or even high antioxidant content.
- Build a Recipe: Select a dish type that you’re craving and let our AI help pair the best ingredients for it!
