Fresh Fruit Containers

These kitchen containers designed by Fabio Molinas create the optimal environment for your fruit and veggies by using the heat output of your refrigerator. The OLTU system, how it is called, not only uses wasted energy from your fridge to achieve this, but because food is now stored in the ideal temperature and humidity, less food will be wasted.

FoodWeLove Box

Less than a year ago the FoodWeLove box was born, and ever since it has been amazingly populair! Intitiator Marleen Basart decided after working some years in Dutch food retail that she wanted to share inspiring stories about good food products and their producers. Marleen believes that storytelling makes good food taste even better, and we think she is right. She travels through the country searching for the most special and tasty products, and is inspired by the passionate stories of the producers. FoodWeLove Box

Smartphone detects food allergens

A smartphone that can be transformed into a lab with the ability to detect food allergens is the latest in add-on technology from inventor Aydogan Ozcan, an engineering professor at the university of California, Los Angeles. He and his researchers are creating prototypes of these devices that turn the phones into precise lab instruments.

The iTube, Ozcan and his colleagues’ new device, converts smartphones into colorimeters that are able to detect minute amounts of allergens, such as peanuts, in food. It’s designed for use at home or in public, such as at a restaurant, said Ozcan, an engineering professor at the University of California, Los Angeles. Smartphone detects food allergens
