The backbones of the flavour network according to Ahnert (2013; [66]). Culinary ingredients are represented by circles and their chemical relationship by lines. The colour of an ingredient indicates the food category that it belongs to. The size of the circle indicates how frequently the ingredient is used. Ingredients are connected if they share a number of flavour compounds [Figure reprinted from [67].]
