Why does it matter to detect a 3 ingredients difference?

 

Here are 2 Margherita pizzas, prepared by 2 very popular Pizza restaurant chains.

How many ingredients with common migraine risk factors would they have?

Usual suspects first: wheat and cheese. Less obvious, tomato and oregano. 4. Is that all?

Well, out of 32 to 37 ingredients, 15 ingredients contain migraine risk factors in each pizza: 12 are common, 3 are individual. 

These 3 specific ingredients result in 2 more common risk factors in one of the pizzas. This could make a significant difference if you are sensitive to capsaicin or corn allergens!
