The Canadian company TellSpec has developed a portable scanner called TellSpec that tells you what's inside just by holding it over food. The US media Foodbeast reports.
"TellSpec" is a scanner that analyzes chemical compounds contained in food using laser spectroscopy and a special mathematical algorithm. Not only the raw materials, nutrients and calories contained in food, but also allergens and chemical substances are identified.
In addition, "TellSpec" records the intake of calories and mercury in conjunction with the smartphone app, and informs you of the calorie target value and the limit value of toxic substances. Of course at home, it seems to be useful when eating out, where it is difficult to grasp detailed raw materials.
According to the media, the company has successfully solicited investors for "TellSpec" through its crowdfunding service Indiegogo, and has succeeded in obtaining an amount of investment that greatly exceeds the target budget. In August 2014, it is said that it is preparing to deliver "Tell Spec" to its supporters. In addition, it is said that advance reservations are currently being accepted on the company's website.
I don't think it's necessary to be so nervous that you can't enjoy your meal, but now that food safety is in turmoil, it's time to judge and manage what you say. Maybe.
