It’s a beloved snack that’s been enjoyed in Britain for over a century – now, a scientist has finally come up with the formula for the perfect chip butty.
Dr James Hind, a statistician from Nottingham Trent University, refined the perfect chip butty recipe based on preferences of 2,000 Brits surveyed by supermarket chain Iceland.
According to the findings, a faultless butty has 12 thick cut chips, two 40g slices of medium sliced white bread, ketchup and butter – not mayo or margarine.
Dr Hind calculated a scientific formula – C ≥ 3b/4 + k = 3m, where C is the weight of chips(g), b is the weight of the bread(g), PTS Terbaik ASEAN k is the amount of ketchup (ml) and m is the mass of butter (g).
