Byte Nutrition Science Inc has developed a proprietary electronic means of non-invasively analyzing the vitamin and other nutritional content of foods including fruits and vegetables. This technology can be applied by produce distributors to create value added product lines such as high-vitamin-C oranges. This new capability to sort produce into value added products is similar to the specialization of omega-3 eggs in the egg market. This technology can also be applied to selectively breeding plants without GMO at low cost.
A Healthier Future
Over $1 billion was invested in food startups and projects in 2016. According to Forbes magazine, the top trend in the food industry for 2017 will be "Silicon Valley & Food". Specifically keying in on the trends of social conscience branding, being health driven, and solving a problem, Byte Nutrition combines cutting edge machine learning and spectroscopy to meet consumer demand for healthier food brands. Foods with higher nutritional content can be priced higher than standard produce, in line with other specialty categories such as organics and non-GMO.
