What’s in my BBQ Potato Chips?

This week, TellSpec added some BBQ potato chips to its database, and here is what we found when we scanned them: Wood Sugar (Xylitol), PAH (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons/smoke), Yeast, Trans Fats, Vitamin C, and high calories.

    Would it be possible to equip it with the ability to find nightshades? This would include paprika, chili, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, potatoes, and potato starch.

      TellSpec identifies the food’s composition the ingredients such as fats, sugars/carbs proteins, calories, certain minerals and additives and allergens for example. It does not identify the gross form of the food – meaning whether it is paprika or eggplant. But rather the egg plant’s composition. It might help to review some of our information available on our other webpages, like the How it Works section. Thank you for your interest!

    It would seem that there are more than 4 items in the BBQ chips that would be an allergen for me. Does the scanner just list about 4 items per sample or can it give many more?

      Yes the app will help consumers define their target preferences from a large list of possibly 30-50 ingredients. So that when the consumer sets his or her user’s preferences those will show up first then you can still access others. Those are SAMPLES of the possible. Thank you for your support!!

      We are adding variables of interest to the consumer for future consideration. But do not have glycemic index levels on our radar yet. Thank you for your interest.
