A new device is in the works that would allow an iPhone to detect and identify organic foods. As this will likely increase the interest in raw organic foods worldwide, San Diego massage therapy school locator and health proponent MSSD has released a tip sheet, detailing how to buy organic food on a budget.
Sarah Korones of Smart Planet reported a unique device called Lapka could change the world of organic food as we know it. The device plugs into the headphone jack on top of the iPhone and includes a series of white, square sensors and a steel probe. The sensors allow the Lapka to evaluate a food’s humidity, temperature, electromagnetic frequency and radiation levels, while the steel probe helps detect nitrates, all of which help it determine how organic a food really is. Developers say the device is still in production stages, but they expect the retail value of the Lapka to be about $220.
In conjunction with this technological breakthrough, Massage School San Diego has released a tip sheet on buying organic food on a budget, in hopes of encouraging the continued growth of the healthy living and organic movements.
1. Buy organic grains, cereals and dry foods in bulk.
2. Stop by your local farmers market.
3. Shop online, and check websites of individual organic brands for coupons or online savings.
4. Buy in season.
5. Become a member of your local CSA, Community Supported Agriculture.
6. Plan your meals carefully, and be choosy about which ingredients should be organic.
The iPhone is a smartphone first released by Apple in 2007. Since then, there have been five versions of the phone: the original iPhone, the iPhone 3G, the iPhone 3GS, the iPhone4, and the iPhone4S. The phones feature internet capability, texting, phone functions, email, music, video and camera applications.
Organic foods are unprocessed, untreated foods that have not had exposure to pesticides, radiation or chemical fertilizers. They also do not contain any chemical or synthetic additives. The organic food movement began in the 1940s and has grown in popularity since.
Nitrates are chemical compounds consisting of oxygen and nitrogen. Their chemical formula is NO3. These compounds are frequently found in chemical fertilizers, so the Lapka’s detection of these would indicate a non-organic food.
With the announcement of the new iPhone device Lapka, that will help detect organic food, Massage School San Diego has released a tip sheet, sharing how to buy organic food on a budget.
