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.
