Test Fresh Produce’s Nitrate Content And Geiger Radiation At Home

A new step in food safety. Chinese website Alibaba offers food counters that immediately measure the amount of nitrate in your fresh produce, and knows whether your food has been exposed to radioactive radiation. For approximately 100 dollar, you can own Greentest, the Portable High Quality Accuracy Food Detector.

Nitrate naturally occurs in vegetables. The nitrate content in vegetables is partly decided by the variety, but can also increase because large amounts of (artificial) fertiliser are used, or the product didn’t get enough sunlight during growing. The counter compares the amount of nitrate to the average amount in that type of fresh produce, and gives consumption recommendations: green is OK, yellow means you have to be careful and red is more than twice the amount allowed.

The more luxurious edition, Greentest Eco, has also been equipped with a Geiger counter, so that you can find out if your food is radioactive. 

Greentest, Portable High Quality High Accuracy Food Detector, Nitrate Tester for Fruit and Vegetable A high quality electronic product that can decrease the chances of getting a cancer. A sophisticated testing equipment that can keep you and your family away from the infringement of harmful pesticide residue, overfertilization, impurities, nitrates, nitrites and heavy metals pollution of soils.

Food safety

In China, food safety is an important topic for the growing middle class. After various food scandals, demand for safely produced food is increasing. The ads therefore mostly say: “Protect your family against unsafe food!” The Geiger counter also focuses on Japan, where there’s much attention on radioactive food, after the disaster with the nuclear reactor.

The products can be ordered globally through Alibaba. When ordering 500, they cost about 60 dollar per piece. Individually, they cost about twice that.
