Upcoming iPhone ‘Appcessory’ Detects Whether Food is Truly OrganicNews Flash Tuesday, August 21st, 2012
(NaturalNews) The dramatic rise in demand for food that is untainted by pesticides and other unnatural chemicals begs the question, how can you really know for sure whether or not that “organic” peach or “biological” avocado is truly what it says it is? Well, an upcoming iPhone app-slash-accessory, or “appcessory,” known as Lapka will soon be able to answer that question, as the visually-stunning “personal environment monitor” will be fully capable of differentiating between the real organic deal and the sneaky imposter.
The four-component device, which has been crafted and designed in the clean, minimalist tradition of the iPhone, will be capable of detecting background radiation levels; electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs); humidity and temperature; and of course organic and non-organic food. And it is Lapka’s organic food component in particular that will be a tremendously useful tool for the natural health community to hold food producers and suppliers responsible for the claims they make, as well as help parents make better informed purchasing decisions.

After plugging the other end of the organic detection component into an iPhone, Lapka’s unique stainless steel probe can then be inserted into a piece of fruit, vegetable, or other food and activated to detect nitrate levels. The presence of nitrates is an indication that synthetic pesticides and other prohibited chemical compounds were used on that food, rendering it non-organic. But if nitrate levels are low or non-existent, then the food was likely grown and produced organically.
