Imagine having a small portable food scanning device that can scan any food in your local grocery store or home, and then shows you the calories and ingredients that are in the food in less than a few seconds. Wouldn’t that help you avoid certain ingredients that you don’t want to consume? If you are health conscious or have allergies, TellSpec food scanner is like a device sent from Heaven, because it will make your life a lot easier by allowing you to scan a food for toxins (e.g., gluten, trans fat, refined sugar). By avoiding food toxins, it will help reduce your risk of chronic fatigue syndrome and food allergy.
What is the TellSpec food scanner?
The TellSpec food scanner is the latest food scanning technology that utilizes Texas Instruments’ DLP technology. The DLP technology allows for better scanning performance without using a laser. Because of this, the DLP technology can help save material cost, making the TellSpec food scanner cheaper to manufacture. This scanner is portable and small enough to fit in your pocket.
The TellSpec food scanner also uses spectroscopy technology and a unique mathematical algorithm that can analyze the chemical composition of any food, and then send that information to your smartphone, tablet, or computer in less than three seconds. This food scanning technology is still in its beta testing stage and should be available for purchase sometime in late 2014 or early 2015.
As mentioned at TellSpec.com.
TellSpec is currently integrating the Texas Instruments’ DLP technology into the TellSpec food scanner. The DLP technology allows our system to have a higher performance due to a higher signal to noise ratio and more accurate spectrum acquisition, as well as more flexibility in programmability for our chemometric algorithms.
Furthermore, the DLP technology does not require a laser which has many advantages for the consumer in terms of safety. By integrating DLP technology into our scanners, we will be able to give consumers better accuracy in detecting their food’s ingredients.
… The TellSpec handheld scanner beams a light at the food you wish to analyze, measures the reflected light with its spectrometer, and sends the data via your smartphone, computer, or tablet to the TellSpec servers in the cloud. Those servers use this data to deduce information about your food that is of interest to you. This information is then displayed on your computer, tablet, or smartphone so you can intelligently decide if you want to buy or eat the food.
Why you should use an advanced food scanner to scan foods for toxins
With more improvements, food scanners like the one created by TellSpec will be able to detect other toxins, including but not limited to monosodium glutamate (MSG), high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), aspartame, sucralose, mercury, aluminum, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, yeast extract, and genetically modified organism (GMO).
Most food manufactures don’t list all the ingredients in their food products. For example, GMO ingredients and pesticides are often not listed in the food label of a food product. By using an advanced food scanner to scan a food product before purchasing or eating it, you can protect yourself from being a victim of false food labeling. Furthermore, using this type of food scanner to help you avoid certain food toxins will reduce your risk of chronic health problems later on in life, such as chronic fatigue syndrome, food allergy, and obesity.
