How is food or the cooking industry related to math?

How do the two worlds come together? Is there any aspect of math in the food world aside from converting measurements?

    Maybe just the cook time…but other then measurements what else would there be mathematically? There might be some aspects of chemistry or biology in there though! Interesting question!

    Look at any label on cans. Percentages, percentages. For ingredients and food values.

    Aside from increasing or decreasing measurement for recipes, the business ends deals with the cost of supplies, wages, charges, etc… just like any other company making money for profit.

    Cost control, inventory, Portion control, time allotment , keeping up with employee hours ,all go into the food industry. A restaurant is one big math problem. I was in the restaurant business for years, over 30 of them. I managed more than one.
