DIETSENSOR

Diabetes Care Guide (English) - - RETAIL NEWS -

Imag­ine be­ing able to scan the meal you’ve just served your­self to read its nu­tri­tional and caloric value at the molec­u­lar level.

It’s now a re­al­ity with the DietSensor app. You can scan hun­dreds of ho­moge­nous foods such as beef, fish, fruit, bread or milk with the hand-held SCiO pocket spec­trom­e­ter by Con­sumer Physics. The de­vice feeds chem­i­cal and nu­tri­tional data di­rectly into the app via Blue­tooth. Us­ing the spec­trom­e­ter is op­tional. The app it­self is free, and in­cludes a data­base of hun­dreds of thou­sands of items for track­ing food in­take. Other fea­tures are track­ing phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity and a vir­tual coach iden­ti­fy­ing ap­pro­pri­ate por­tions and sug­gest­ing foods to bal­ance out meals. DietSensor con­nects with pop­u­lar health and fit­ness apps and de­vices. A Blue­tooth dig­i­tal scale that weighs food por­tions and sends data to the app is com­ing soon.

The SCiO spec­trom­e­ter and monthly or an­nual plans are avail­able through dietsensor.com.

DietSensor is avail­able for free on the App Store for the iPhone and at Google Play for the An­droid. The SCiO spec­trom­e­ter and monthly or an­nual plans are avail­able through dietsensor.com.
