Nutri — 
Nutrition Tracking, Simplified

The Nutri kitchen scale is an innovative smart nutrition tracking solution for individuals who require detailed records of their daily food intake. It simplifies the nutrition tracking process by automating the laborious manual task of locating, deciphering, and recording the nutrition facts of various foods.

Automating these processes saves the user time and energy, and enables them to have a more seamless, yet still accurate cooking experience. The Nutri kitchen scale leverages the most recent advancements in tiny machine learning and computer vision technology to bring individuals a simple, affordable, yet still powerful, kitchen device. With Nutri, people can spend less time tracking their diets, and more time enjoying their food.

Problem

The current process of food tracking is tedious and time consuming. Even with computer vision abilities integrated into some popular food tracking apps on our smartphones, users still need to take the extra steps to pick up their phones to scan each ingredient, and then manually enter the amount. This interrupts the natural flow of the food prep process.

Technology

Recent advancements in computer vision and tiny ML (machine learning) has made these technologies available on increasingly smaller devices. This allows for a whole new world of opportunity as we now have the ability to implement complex AI systems into smaller and more accessible devices, such as a food scale.

Opportunity

The growing popularity of health and wellness tracking products shows a desire for clarity in understanding our bodies. These products and devices can be very useful, but only when it is well integrated into a user's lifestyle.

Our Audience

The Nutri kitchen scale is designed for people who require detailed records of their daily food intake. This group often consists of people who have physical conditions such as diabetes, health enthusiasts, and chefs.

Accurate ingredient recognition

Nutri's powerful AI system and comprehensive food data base ensures that all of your meals are easily and accurately documented, whether it is breakfast, lunch, dinner, or any snacks in between.

Your nutrition, your way

Unlock the full potential of the Nutri nutrition tracking system by pairing it with the Nutri smartphone app. The app breaks down the user's daily micros and macros, save nutrition facts of personal recipes, track meal history, and more.

Understanding the Nutri Kitchen Scale

The camera, located in the camera arm of the Nutri kitchen scale, automatically recognizes food items placed on the scale surface, and will give the user immediate nutritional information through the screen on the scale based on what and how much is put on. This information is then recorded into the user's personal food journal app on their phone, which then provides a detailed nutritional breakdown of each meal that is consumed.
