My wife has an intense sensitivity to sodium benzoate and is basically out of commission for days if she accidentally consumes any. Unfortunately, in the US, food manufacturers are not required to list it in the ingredients statement. And after years of following this, I am seeing that it is a larger issue than I had originally thought.
Any idea if the Scio Scanner can detect it? And if so, I am happy to fund whatever the dev cost.
We should note that SCiO is NOT a medical device and should NOT be relied on to protect you from allergens under any circumstances. Since SCiO is designed to measure small portions of a sample or food at a time, it cannot guarantee the absence of specific molecules on your plate, or in a serving.
