Salt-Mimicking Kitchenwares

This Kirin Electric Bowl and Spoon Offers Salty Flavor without Salt

— September 30, 2022 — Art & Design
Reducing salt intake is imperative for older consumers and health-conscious individuals alike, so the Kirin electric bowl and spoon have been developed as a way to offer a solution.

The kitchenware items make use of weak electrical current flow stimulation technology to mimic salty flavor without having to increase the amount of salt in foods. This would work effectively for those who enjoy savory recipes, which are traditionally high in salt without having to worry about sodium intake.

The Kirin electric bowl and spoon can work on four intensity levels to help the person experience more or less saltines according to their preferences. The use of the extra-low level of electricity makes the items completely safe for use.
