New cutting-edge scanner technologybeing 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.
