New Breath-Sniffing Gadgets To Improve Your Diet

CES Tech showcased 2 gadgets in Las Vegas in a show that will analyze people’s breath through their inside gases which might improve their diet.

There are 2 literally pocket-seized devices known as Lumen and FoodMarble, that users blow into.

These above-mentioned devices come with a smart-phone app which happens to let the customers know if and how well they are imbibing food or burning calories.

But these technologies are yet to be verified by the scientists as per one of the experts said.

A crowdfunding site Indiegogo was used by Lumen to raise almost 2 million dollars. To measure the carbon dioxide level, they have designed an inhaler-shaped item in the user’s breath.

This is to provide a pathway through which a person’s metabolism can be monitored. Specifically said, to check the chemical processes which converts food to energy.

Founder Dror Cedar explained saying, “You don’t need to guess how much sugar was in that kung pao chicken or how many calories you did on that run”.

He also explained in a very simpler way that the app can identify if any user is burning carbs or fat. It will also suggest recipes that will help to burn fat and give a proper diet plan for the users.

Mr. Cedar told that the app, Lumen is tested by almost hundreds of users of US.

However, the product has yet to be peer-reviewed.

The firm is planning to go in the market this summer for 299 dollars, but the ones who will pre-order this product can buy is for 250 dollars. Though it has not been fixed yet whether there will be any subscription fee in the future or not but at this moment anyone can use it for free.

According to Lisa Ruttledge, founder of the firm, said that trouble in digesting any recent meal can cause hydrogen in the breath. She also said, “That’s happening because there’s fermentation happening in your gut and some hydrogen created in that process is exhaled”.

Kevin Whelan, a professor of dietetics at King’s College London, “There is only limited scientific research showing that these validated tests carried out in a hospital environment can tell you what foods you are sensitive to Portable, user-driven machines that test breath gas have never been used in scientific studies to show what foods people may be sensitive to.”
