No idea what you're eating? Does it contain chemicals and allergens that you want to avoid? Are you a bit distrustful of the labeling (or lack of labeling) on the food you purchase for your family? Well now there's an App for that, or at least there will be very soon.
I'm on an email list that sends regular notifications of new IndieGoGo projects. This morning I was alerted to this new product: TellSpec: What's in your food?
TellSpec is a fascinating device that literally scans your food and then displays the resluts on your portable deveice. Watch this short video to see how it works.
What is TellSpec?
TellSpec is a three-part system which includes: (1) a spectrometer scanner (2) an algorithm that exists in the cloud; and (3) an easy-to-understand interface on your smart phone. Just aim the scanner at the food and press the button until it beeps. You can scan directly or through plastic or glass. TellSpec analyzes the findings using the algorithm and sends a report to your phone telling you the allergens, chemicals, nutrients, calories, and ingredients in the food. TellSpec is a fast, simple, and easy-to-use way to learn what's in your food. We need your help to make it smaller and manufacture it as a handheld device.
Here's the part that really impressed me – it can help you identify food allergies 🙂
TellSpec will track what you eat, and based on your reports of how you feel, it will help identify your food sensitivities.
They have already raised over $150,000 – learn more here.
