Electric spoons and plates go on sale in Japan

(ORDO NEWS) — Japanese researchers have created smart kitchen utensils that use electricity to make food saltier and tastier without adding salt.

Salt makes food much tastier, but it is also a very dangerous ingredient that, if consumed in excess, can cause serious health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.

But what if we could make food taste salty without using salt? Scientists from Meiji University and developers Kirin Holdings have been working on this for several years.

The smart chopsticks we wrote about earlier worked by transferring sodium ions from food into the user’s mouth, creating a strong sensation of saltiness. However, they had a big drawback. Chopsticks had to be connected to a power source attached to the user’s forearm.

The development team has resolved this issue. The smart spoon and plate recently demonstrated by the inventors has enough space for a built-in battery, so you no longer have to worry about connecting them to a power source.

It is reported that the new smart spoon and plate can make food 1.5 times saltier, which is good news for many people who love salty food but have to watch their salt intake for health reasons.

The new smart cookware will hit the Japanese market early next year. The new products will be called Erekisoruto and will have built-in batteries. The price of the kit is currently unknown.
