Kirin Holdings, a well-known company in Japan that makes drinks, is introducing a new tool called the Electric Salt Spoon. This tool is special because it helps people taste salt in their food without actually using more salt. It was created with the help of Professor Homei Miyashita from Meiji University. The spoon works by using a small electric field to make food taste saltier when it touches the tongue. This idea is to make food seem saltier without adding extra salt, which can be better for health.

The Electric Salt Spoon is very important in Japan because many people there like their food salty. However, eating too much salt can lead to serious health problems, such as high blood pressure and strokes. Kirin Holdings aims to help people enjoy the taste of salt without the bad effects by using this new spoon. They are starting to sell 200 of these spoons online this month for 19,800 yen each, and they plan to sell them in stores starting in June. Kirin hopes to have one million people using these spoons around the world within five years, showing their commitment to using new science to improve health.
