Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet Combos | Bon Appétit

While we have a list of ingredients, nobody really knows how Combos are made. There is little to no information about Combos on the internet, which begs the question: what are they hiding? But not to worry, pastry chef Claire Saffitz is on the case! Join her as she attempts to unpack this mystery and make gourmet Combos!

  • I'm confused. Why was there some question about if it was okay to eat the baking-soda-not-washed-off-first cracker-tubes they sound like they think eating them might cause mild illness or something. Is there some question as to whether they're food-safe? Why would there be? Maybe I'm misinterpreting.

  • Sodium bicarbonate decomposes to sodium carbonate, which is more alkaline. If the coating wasn't rinsed I think the NaCO3 might've reacted with the organic compounds in the dough to make sodium carbide derivatives with esters and carboxylic acids I guess.

Nothing good for the environment nor biodiversity about All these palm oil ingredients God have mercy on the Biodiversity within Indonesia and Malaysia you should have either used a meat grinder to form the combo cylinders or maybe a pasta extruder baking soda only lowers your stomach acid ph and there is a consumption limit for 24 hours that’s acceptable as safe limits
