Valoa Brix is a device that measures the sugar content of a beverage in a bottle without opening it using its unique laser reflection technology. It can measure sugar in white wines, red wines, sparkling wines, liqueurs, and even clear juices.
How it works:
Many companies are using a laser to send out light with a specific wavelength to detect glucose in the blood. The laser generates a specific wavelength of light that is absorbed in a stoichiometric fashion by glucose molecules – the more glucose molecules; the more photons are absorbed. Valoa uses the same technology for estimating glucose concentration in other liquids e.g. beverages, liqueurs, clear juices etc.
Why measuring sugar level is important:
There can be several reasons including:
- Wine tasting is an art and many people aren’t very good at knowing the quality of a wine based only on labeling. Valoa Brix allows people to do that without opening a bottle. Same can be done for other liquours and clear juices.
- Some people have medical reasons for restricting the sugar amount in their diet
- The technology is cool. A geek or a technologist would thoroughly enjoy using this gadget
