Depending on how it is stored, food can go bad long before or long after its expiration date, and Peres Food Sniffer can help you know for sure.
The reason behind the development of the Peres Food Sniffer pocket gadget is represented by the great number of people who at some point in their lives have experienced food poisoning or any other type of discomfort caused by the ingestion of food with disease-causing bacteria. By measuring the amount of volatile organic compounds and ammonia from the air surrounding the meat, Peres Food Sniffer can easily predict the state of the food. Considering how easy a concept this is, it’s quite surprising that no one thought of it before.
Augustas Aleši?nas, the CEO of PERES, emphasized the context that made the Food Sniffer a necessity: “Have you ever had a food-related illness? It’s likely that you or someone you know has. The World Health Organization (WHO) states that more than 200 diseases are spread through food, and one out of three people living in industrialized countries may be affected by food-borne illness each year. After experiencing food poisoning myself, I have decided to create a device that would help me and my family easily check the freshness and quality of our food, and PERES was born.”
The developers of the Peres Food Sniffer are running a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. At press time, the makers had raised 55% of the $50K goal, but considering that they went for flexible funding, even if that goal is not reached, we might get to see a version of this product on the market, probably a bit later than anticipated.
If you’re among the ones who consider this little gadget useful, head over to Indiegogo and secure a Peres Food Sniffer for yourself for $120. There are plenty of Early Bird spots, so you should definitely take advantage of this, as the retail price may be a lot higher than that. At first, it might look like the device is a bit pricey, but considering of how much trouble this could save you, the cost is more than worth it. Hopefully, such detectors for other foods than meat will be invented in the future, so that vegetarians can use such gadgets, as well.
