Latest developments of nutrition came together with new tools allowing a better monitoring of alimentary factors relevant for wellness. Many of those tools analyze how what we’ve eaten affects our body.
Since their appearance in the 70s, sensors for blood glucose monitoring have produced significant improvement in patient conditions, allowing a more personalized approach to nutrition for those affected by diabetes.
Latest versions of those tools come without needle, since they’re capable of measuring glucose levels by way of fluorescent marker and osmotic sensors.
However most innovative applications of measure in nutritional science concern farming, and especially monitoring in the early stages of development of vegetables. As an example, sensors can detect the chlorophyll concentration in cultivations, thus allowing the optimization of fertilizers and maintaining minimal level of nitrogen, which is notoriously cancerogenic factor.
This intelligent approach to nutrition positively affects the quality of our food, thus allowing our diet to fit our needs and not the other way around.
