‘Magic plate’ removes extra calories from food

Bangkok: Good news for people tired of carefully picking and eating just to avoid extra calories. Created by Thai government health board, a plate with 500 tiny holes, absorbs calories. The Absorbplate claims to be capable of sucking upto 7ml of oil from the food placed on it, accounting upto 30 calories! This plate lets you enjoy your meal without guilt.

It works like a sponge, allowing grease to settle in 500 tiny holes. It’s essentially the same as blotting your pizza slice with a bit of kitchen roll before you eat it – just more effective and less effort. The AbsorbPlate is currently still in the concept stages so there’s no launch date yet. But once they’re available for purchase, we’re definitely stocking up.
