It’s kind of scary how little we know about the foods we put in our bodies; especially with prepared meals. We just have to trust that there’s no rat urine even though the FCC uses the term “acceptable amount of rat excrement”. Seems like it should be more of a pass fail kind of thing, but that’s why this is a genius invention. Tellspec beams light on your food then measure the reflected light to determine the chemical make-up of what you’re about to ingest. In three seconds, the device will then send the results to your phone or computer. The app not only tells you what chemicals are in the food, it also gives in depth descriptions of each chemical and can track your diet and by inputting how you feel, can identify food sensitivities. Price is still TBD, but based on TellSpec’s Indiegogo campaign, the scanner will sell at around $300.
