"NO SALT RESTAURANT with ELECTRO ‘Salt-flavoured’ FORK" The Ishii Clinic, along with the production team at Tokyo University, invented the Electro Fork for these patients.
"ELECTRO ‘Salt-flavoured’ FORK" The tongue is covered with taste buds, that sense the flavour of foods, and there are “areas where saltiness is sensed more prominently”. By applying electronic stimulation to this area, utilizing the technology of Augmented Gustation, even foods without Salt, can be given delicious Salt Flavour. And the NO SALT RESTAURANT, featuring this fork, was opened. This restaurant provides foods the patients cannot regularly enjoy, due to their high Salt content without using Salts. (Saltless Meatloaf, Saltless Pork Cutlet, Saltless Salad, Saltless Fried Rice and Saltless Cake). By eating with the ELECTRO FORK, all dishes become flavourful, with the illusion of Salt Flavour.
It will be possible to resolve the world’s current issues of salt intake, and realize healthier cuisine and eating habits. Gained countless publicity: CNET "No salt, no problem! Japanese Electro Fork zaps flavour into your mouth. " Engadget "Dining with the Electro Fork that could Save Lives" The Telegraph "Japan invents Electric ’Salt-flavoured Fork’ " Mashable "If you love salt but you're worried about your sodium intake, a new futuristic fork could save your life."
