Tech firm's plant-based scanner works to a tea

July 19, 2019

Local start-up teapasar has devised a faster and more economic way to authenticate and identify plant-based food and drink.

The food-tech company’s ProfilePrint portable scanner was unveiled on Friday (July 19) at the Singapore Tea Festival at Jewel Changi Airport.

How to know if the tea you bought is authentic? Simply scan the tea leaves using this device. Did you know that fraud in the tea industry is common? As lower-grade teas or even used teas may be used as a substitute, and teas that could be adulterated with fillers like wood, chips, and sugar. It is unfortunate but tea industry farmers are also paid the thinnest margin of their products’ eventual retail price, as earnings are unevenly distributed between farmers, wholesalers, and retailers. In a quest to combat these problems and increase transparency, local food tech start-up teapasar has developed a commercial portable device that is faster and cheaper to identify the authenticity of a plant-based food and drink – such as tea, herbs and spices. Alan Lai, Co-Founder & Executive Director of teapasar shares more.

This new site wants to make sure the tea you’re drinking is the real thing
September 05, 2018

There’s a name for it: tea fraud. A number of high profile scandals in recent years, such as China-made teas with cancer-causing colouring and cheap teas masquerading as expensive brews, have made people cautious about their once-relaxing cuppa.

To protect consumers from health issues caused by drinking these teas, governments are relying on QR codes on packages or sending samples to labs for testing – but it’s a costly and slow process.

Using machine learning, a Singapore-based site hopes to give tea-drinkers worldwide a way to buy teas that are authentic and safe.
