A New Urine Test Is Able to Show What You Really Eat

A team of scientists from the UK developed a new urine test that is able to reveal how healthy the food you eat is. This test is described in details in The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology. It can detect chemicals that made in the body when the food processed. The scientists believe that this test could be available on the market already in two years.new urine test detects what you eat

The test analyses the urine samples to determine the structure of chemicals in it with the help of a technique called a proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy.

Dr Isabel Garcia-Perez, one of the researchers, says: “This will eventually provide a tool for personalised dietary monitoring to help maintain a healthy lifestyle. We're not at the stage yet where the test can tell us a person ate 15 chips yesterday and two sausages, but it's on the way.”
