Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
SpoonTEK has built-in advanced electronics. It's the first commercial spoon to excite the taste buds and immediately alter and enhance taste. The device is powered by the human body's energy in connection with two electrodes generating a mild electric current that passes through the food on the spoon. Additionally, once food from the spoon makes contact with the tongue, it completes the circuit and will illuminate the LED light on the handle.
Does the product reduce calories, sugar, salt, etc. from food?
SpoonTEK does not reduce calories nor change ingredients.
Is there an on/off switch?
