Nutriscale Instantly Counts Food Calories
Key to the Nutriscale is a microprocessor which has in its memory the calorie, carbohydrate, fat, sodium and protein content of more than 800 foods and beverages.
You simply place the food serving, up to 25 ounces, on the scale. Next, punch in the appropriate number for the food or beverage from an accompanying booklet. A press of one of five buttons then shows you the corresponding nutritional content for that serving.
The booklet's listings include the four basic food groups, as well as snack foods. It also lists foods in different forms, such as red and black raspberries ù fresh, canned or frozen.
About the size of a hand-held calculator, the Nutriscale plugs into an 110 outlet. Sells for $120.
