Food scanning tech will soon be able to figure out exactly what we’re eating

New cutting-edge scanner technology being developed by companies like TellSpec, SCiO and Target could dramatically revolutionize the transparency of what we eat. Researchers might soon be able to use the scanners to detect a whole host of data, including the presence of pesticides, whether a food contains dairy or gluten and nutrition and calorie information. According to the Washington Post, the technology could finally answer the age-old questions, “Did they water down this beer?” and “Is it beef… or is it horsemeat?” This is great news for our health.
