General Electric is working on microwave that can count calories in food




Scientists at General Electric working on a microwave that can determine the amount of calories in it. An analysis of the heated food There is already a prototype of the calorie counting technology developed; Food must first pass through the blender.

The equipment developed by General Electric works by microwaves to send the food, so explains Matt Webster, one of the scientists from MIT Technology Review. The change in properties of the micro waves after they have passed through the food tells you something about the fat and water content. According to the scientists, the amount of carbohydrates and protein can be calculated on the basis of the weight of the food is measured and the amount of fat and water.

General Electric has already developed a prototype of a calorie counter. However, it is necessary to first in a blender to stop the food, there is a homogeneous mixture is required to be able to carry out a reliable measurement. According to the scientists, future versions should also be able to deal with ongehomogeniseerd food.

Eventually, General Electric hopes to build conventional magnetrons the technology. Users can thus find out how many calories they ingest, and it can integrate with calorie trackers. For that matter, the technology can be used to simply help build without microwave function. Calorie counter used
