Lapka Organic Lets You Test For Pesticide Residue on Fruits and Vegetable

By Butterboom Writers  /  March 20, 2015

Lapka Organic is a device that can detect if your fruits and vegetables contain pesticide residue. More precisely it can detect the nitrates concentration left behind from nitrogen-based fertilizer to determine if the fruit or vegetable  in raw produce is safe to eat. So if you want to make sure the organic fruits or vegetable in your supermarket are really organic, here’s a way to find out!

The Lapka sensor is moulded from wood and injection-moulded white plastic. Beautifully designed with a hole through the wood part so you can wear it as a necklace (the creator comes from a product design background), the sensor lives up to its purpose as a personal environment monitor that you will be happy to carry around with you.

How it works?

The Lapka Organic sensor comes with a stainless steel prob that you can pierce through raw fruit and vegetable to test for nitrate.  The sensor comes with 10 fruit and vegetable preset that denotes the threshold for nitrate concentration for each produce to alert user if the particular item contains too much left over nitrate ions.   The little probe actually measures ionic conductivity and the quantity of nitrates left behind from nitrogen-based fertilizers.

You just need to plug the block-shaped sensor module into your iPhone using the included cable, open up the Lapka app and check the nitrate measurement of your fruit or vegetable. Amazing, now your fruits and vegetable can talk!
