The real organic deal

Lapka’ is a new iPhone app and accessory kit that allows users to test the ‘organic levels’ of their food.

The kit uses probes and sensors to test the amount of nitrates (non-organic fertilisers) in foods, plus other environmental factors. The kit’s makers hope that the technology will help users to understand more about what they’re eating, and also weed-out ‘fake’ organic produce being peddled at higher prices.
