Daily life activities of food preparation can be challenging for consumers due to restricted skills and experience, loss of perceptive abilities (accident/aging) or due to product fraud and contaminations, commonly summarized under the term of food adulteration, which are exceeding human perceptive abilities in general. Additionally freshness assessment for sustainable food use as well as nutritional content analysis for healthy life are of major interest. Thus, in our work the E-Taster-Assistance-System for living assistance, food safety, and nutritional content analysis was conceived. Autonomous, multisensory, wireless measurement systems (Lab-on-Spoon/-Fork, LoX), which have been embodied as items of daily use, deliver as 'electronic tongues' sensory context for the required assistance. These integrated sensory systems can be understood as Internet of Things (IoT) devices and they have been implemented based on the Arduino platform, which has established itself as a common choice for IoT solutions. The E-Taster system includes an electronic cookbook, that interacts with the multispectral LoX devices and also has special functions for sustainable use of food. The E-Taster project targets on a solution for the underlying mass market at the end of the food chain.
