Let me make sure to clear up the immediate question everybody has right off the bat, that way we don’t waste any time:
No, this plate will not automatically make your food healthier.
Metro reports that the plate was created through a collaboration between advertising agency BBGO Thailand and the Thai government health board, this creation was made in order to help curb the growing obesity problem in Thailand. With grease and oil playing pivotal roles in the typical Thai cuisine, it comes as no wonder that this problem would eventually arise.
The plate, known as the AbsorbPlate, removes all the excess grease from meals by draining the food once it’s been placed onto the plate. The AbsorbPlate sucks up a good chunk of grease, saving you from eating an average of 30 extra calories.
While this may not be revolutionary in terms of weight loss, it certainly could have noticeable affect over time. Furthermore, the biggest takeaway from this product is the fact that you don’t have to diet. Everybody wants to lose weight but nobody wants to give up burgers and pizza. So why not give up the equivalent to a bite or two instead?
The plate comes riddled with 500 holes made to drain the grease from the food. Much like blotting a slice of pizza with a napkin, the plate works to remove as much oil and grease and possible without jeopardizing the integrity of the food.
While this plate in no way will make any dishes you make healthier, it will at the very least make it slightly less greasy, and that’s better than nothing. The AbsorbPlate is currently still in a concept design phase, but will hopefully be sent into mass production soon.
