A battery-operated spoon that salts food is sold in Japan.

Researchers say the plastic-and-metal spoon helps consumers cut salt and eat healthily.

Too much sodium increases the risk of high blood pressure, strokes, and other illnesses.

Japan’s adults ingest 10g of salt daily, double the WHO’s recommendation.

The Electric Salt Spoon concentrates sodium ion molecules on the tongue by sending a modest electric current through its tip.

Kirin, a Japanese company, claims this increases food saltiness by 1.5 times.

The company, which is expanding into healthcare from beer, claimed users can adjust their intensity from four degrees.

 

The device was invented alongside Meiji University professor Homei Miyashita, who showed that current-powered electronic chopsticks improved flavor. He won the Ig Nobel Nutrition Prize last year.

According to a 2021 business poll, salt-restrictors complain that food tastes bland.

In the beginning, Kirin will sell 200 goods online for 19,800 yen (£99).

There will be a limited run at a Japanese shop this month.

The startup hopes to reach 1 million members worldwide in five years.

“Japanese food culture favors salty flavors,” Kirin researcher Ai Sato remarked.

“Japanese people should cut back on salt, but it’s hard to change our diets.

“That’s what led us to develop this electric spoon.”
