Unique! Japanese Company Creates Smart Spoon, Enhances Salty Taste in Food

Dream - When enjoying a meal, sometimes we add seasoning like salt and pepper that are provided on the dining table. However, basically adding too much salt to food is not a good thing. Interestingly, there is currently technology that can correct the taste of food without the need to add a lot of salt.

Unique! Japanese Company Creates Smart Spoon, Enhancing the Salty Taste of Food

Kirin Holdings, a technology company from Japan, has introduced a commercial version of their flavor-enhancing spoon that they developed. The spoon, named Elecispoon, is designed to enhance the perception of salty taste and make food taste better.

Quoting Oddity Central, researchers collaborated with scientists at Meiji University to create a smart kitchen tool that uses electricity to enhance the salty taste of food. At that time, they tested smart spoons and bowls that could make food taste 1.5 times saltier. However, only the spoon successfully reached the marketing stage. Eventually, Elecispoon was launched with the goal of improving public health by helping to reduce salt intake.

The excessive use of salt is a common problem in Japan, and many people find low-salt food to be tasteless. Overcoming serious health problems caused by excessive salt intake is not as easy as eliminating salt from one's diet.

This is where Elecispoon plays an important role. This smart spoon uses unique electric wave technology to deceive the user's taste senses. According to Kirin's press release, the tip of this spoon has a mechanism that can transfer electric charges to the food it touches, while creating an electric field around the tongue. This electric field causes sodium ions in the food to gather, resulting in a stronger salty taste.

Because everyone experiences different levels of saltiness, Elecispoon has four levels of electrical intensity. Kirin recommends users to start with the first level, although it is claimed that even at the highest setting, this spoon will not cause shocking or tingling sensations.

The following 'Bahasa' text translated to 'English' while preserving any html tags: "This smart spoon uses a rechargeable 3V lithium battery installed in its handle. Elecispoon can be a savior for food lovers who need to reduce their salt consumption."

However, Kirin Holdings emphasizes that not everyone is allowed to use this spoon. People with facial nerve disorders, metal allergies, or an inability to detect pain or temperature should not use it. This smart spoon is also not recommended for those with electric medical implants, pregnant women, and people undergoing dental treatment. The price for one smart spoon is 19,800 yen or about Rp 2 million. Author: Khaira Amaliya
