Tracking your nutrition step-by-step with the Smart Food Scale

A food scale that’s smart enough to track what you’re eating and dough out the exact nutritional information for the food you weigh and cook? That’s the Smart Food Scale, a Bluetooth-enabled food scale that comes with a companion iOS app.

You can use it as a normal scale and measure out portions with ease instead of using these pesky measuring cups and spoons.

Next, you can use the app and keep track of what goes into your food at every step along the way, so you can then view the nutritional information — handily retrieved from USDA — for the entire dish at the end. Even cooler: you can prioritize your nutritional information to go beyond calories and fat and track, say, your intake of Vitamin B or iron. Sounds good to us.
