What technology does TeakOrigin use?


By combining the scientific rigor of a chemistry lab with the realities of how we buy and eat food, we’ve developed a way to know, rather than assume, what food is.

We do this by “decoding food” and determining what’s inside. We use a combination of traditional chemistry techniques, the molecular power of optical spectroscopy, and machine learning to analyze the chemical properties and key indicators of foods’ authenticity, quality and freshness.

This gives us millions of data points and never-before-seen insights we share with you in the TeakOrigin Guide.

As a bonus, no produce is harmed in this data collection. TeakOrigin’s methods are fast, small, relatively low-cost, and non-destructive to the food being tested. Samples are donated to local food banks and associated organizations.
