TellSpec: Analyzing Food in Under 20 Seconds


For people with food allergies or diet-related diseases such as diabetes, eating foods with unknown ingredients can be very risky. A Toronto-based company, TellSpec, has created a device to help identify the ingredients in food in under 20 seconds! Using laser spectroscopy and a unique mathematical algorithm in a revolutionary system, the handheld device beams a low-powered laser at the item and is then able to send data to a smart phone, computer, or tablet. TellSpec tells the user about any allergens, chemicals, nutrients, calories, and ingredients before the item is even bought and digested!
