Food, human being's cross and delight: our ability to “read” flavors with our tongue gives us sublime joys, or condemns us to obesity. Sometimes at the same time.
The human struggle to defend the pleasure of flavors without falling into excesses of food is endless. We've tried them all: diets, liquid foods, even electronic flavors. SpoonTEK arrives today. It is a special spoon that stimulates the taste buds to enhance the flavors of food.
SpoonTEK is a device that, to be brutal, makes us enough what we have, and makes us appreciate it more.
Put it simple: do you like that cake that contains 300 grams of sugar? Well. Now you can make it with half the sugar, and eat it using SpoonTEK as a cutlery: the cake will taste the same. Even simpler: half calories, same flavor.
The device gives the best of itself in improving the flavors, according to its inventors, of yogurt, ice cream, soups, and in general of all foods (but go?) With the spoon.
How does SpoonTEK work?
SpoonTEK works by using two electrodes that come into contact with the tongue. It is not a mini electric shock and you will not feel any shock. The voltage just does what it needs to: stimulate the taste buds to help enhance the perceived flavors. The device may be of particular interest to those who are looking for ways to make low-calorie foods tastier without having to add more flavorings or calories to do so.
SoonTEK is being launched on the popular crowdfunding platform Indiegogo. For the modest sum of 45 dollars, about 40 euros, siore and siori, you can fry your taste buds and not care about the fact that the aunt always makes pasta and potatoes without salt.
