Using Your New SCiO Scanner with DietSensor

The SCiO scanner, developed by Consumer Physics, is an innovative tool that uses infrared spectroscopy to determine the chemical makeup of food and drink.

How does it work?  To explain – each type of molecule in a food vibrates in its own way, and these vibrations interact with light to create a unique, optical signature.  The SCiO scanner analyzes the content of food based on how its molecules interact with light.  Spectrometer technology can now be integrated in small and portable devices.

The steps below will help you use your new SCiO and get it connected the DietSensor App:

  1. Power on the SCiO by pressing and holding the button.
  2. When the SCiO is powered up, a flash will indicate that the devise is ready to be connected.
  3. Turn on the DietSensor application and activate the Bluetooth.
  4. For the first connection, click on the icon at the right of your screen and choose the nearest SCiO.
  5. Start the calibration process by clicking on the SCiO (no new calibration will be required unless you uninstall the app or switch to another SCiO).
  6. You need an Ultimate Plan to be able to use the SCiO. After purchase, you will have to create a Consumer Physics (CP) account (use the sign up blue button on the CP login screen).
  7. In the meal screen, select the SCiO icon and follow the steps.
  8. To scan a food item, point the SCiO about a ½ inch from the food without moving.
  9. Firmly press the button of the SCiO and release it.
  10. Wait for two flashes before moving.

For best results use the scanner in a very bright environment.  This will prevent the SCiO from interacting  with other infrared waves and gives more accurate results.  The food must be homogeneous.

Breaking down food myths: Stop demonizing food

Almost every day in the news you hear about a new study coming out either praising or villainizing a type of food – one day your cup of coffee is an indulgent treat and the next day it is associated with protective health benefits. This yo-yoing can cause confusion and may lead you to unnecessarily demonize foods and the nutrients in them.

In the world of health and fitness, carbohydrates and fat are villains, which are macronutrients along with protein that your body needs in large amounts to provide energy and to aid in growth and body function. We also required micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals – but in much smaller amounts. According to Angela Luciani, RD, LDN, a registered dietitian said in an interview with Philly.com, that eating more calories that your body required can lead to weight gain. She also added that cutting out entire food groups can lead to nutritional shortfalls and unpleasant side effects. Many people incorrectly believe that only sugar causes type 2 diabetes. In reality, the insulin resistance associated with type 2 diabetes can be thought of as carbohydrate intolerance; type 2 diabetes is a side effect of consuming too many carbohydrates relative to a person’s carbohydrate tolerance, which can cause blood sugar to spike. You can start using a carb counter to monitor your carb intake and it is a great way to stay on track! DietSensor, the scanner-and-app combo , introduced at CES 2016, aims to make healthy eating easier and instantly gives you nutrition info on the food you’re eating!
