Recent studies have shown that added sugars, particularly those containing fructose, are a principal driver of diabetes and pre-diabetes, even more so than other carbohydrates.  So why portion control matters ? When you have type 2 diabetes, you need to gauge portion sizes correctly, so you know how many calories and carbohydrates you’re taking in and how they’ll affect your blood sugar. Learning what a portion size actually is – and eating that amount – is tricky. People are notoriously bad at estimating what, say, a cup of breakfast cereal looks like. Let’s make it simple ! Meet the DietSensor app, the smart food scanner which pairs via Bluetooth with the SCiO sensor, and which has a small infrared sensor on one end. DietSensor is a handheld scanner that connects to an app on your smartphone via Bluetooth. When you point it at the food and click, it’s able to detect its nutritional value and send a detailed report straight to your phone via Bluetooth in seconds.

From calorie count and carbohydrate percentage to fat and protein levels, this tiny food psychic can determine the chemical makeup of both food and drink to give you a real, and often stark, insight into the grub you’re about to eat.  Isn’t it amazing ? Being able to know exactly what’s in every mouthful of food you eat is every dieter’s dream. This incredible DietSensor is about to make that dream a reality.
