More Personalized Ingredient Search Results

Posted on February 03, 2017 by

We keep trying to make searching for ingredients a little easier and more efficient so you can spend more time on other things. A little while ago, we added filters that let you limit the results you look at to things like only USDA ingredients, only ingredients you've used, or only ingredients you've created yourself.

Now we've also updated the behind-the-scenes scoring for searches so that ingredients personal to you are boosted in the rankings relative to others.

What Does That Mean?

Your custom ingredients and ingredients you've already used in a recipe will show up higher in your search results, usually at the top of the list.


ReciPal Search Results

Normally, the USDA results would show up first, but we've created a few ingredients and used others, so they are boosted in the results.

Why'd We Do It?

We do it for you, of course! There are a couple of benefits to having your personal options at the top of your results:

  • It's easier to maintain consistency in your recipes with the same ingredients.
  • It makes searching and recipe creation faster.

But we hope you find other benefits and let us know what you think!
