Ok, this product is not currently available.  They claim it is going to be handheld spectrometer capable of identifying allergens, including gluten, in foods.  They are still raising funds to build them.  I am not suggesting anyone fund the device or recommending it.  Might work, might not.  But the idea is interesting and it might be worth checking on it over time to see how it progresses.  The idea of pointing a little gizmo at anything and identifying the presence of gluten is kinda cool.  Can you say tricorder Spock?  This gizmo is not ready for prime time and is not proven yet IMHO.  But heck, the phase cannons on the original Enterprise didn't work right out of the gate either.  So maybe someday..

that would be pretty cool!  I think instead of saying "smaller than your phone" it should just be made into a phone app :)

IrishHeart, I don't know either. But I think the technology is amazing. The article said they may have devices for different conditions. As I get more and more used to identifying gluten in my foods, I'm sure I wouldn't need it as much. But right now it would be a godsend!!

 

Besides, it looks like a cool little gadget. Could be a fun way to break the ice when talking about Celiac. :-)

I'm really confused as to how this works. How on earth can it identify the chemical makeup of foods by being pointed at it? I doubt it would be any good for detecting trace amounts of gluten and CC.

lol

I know someone with a tee shirt that says "ask me about my celiac"

but that may be too "over the top"??.

 

But....you're right...at least the gizmo has james bond-ish appeal.

Something like that would be really useful for those of us who have intolerances that are not "the big 8". When something doesn't have to be listed on the label if it was "used in processing", but it still leaves enough residue for us to react to, it could be a Godsend. (Of course I'm thinking about corn and my recent reaction to that vitamin C.)

 

Happy Thanksgiving Irish, and everyone else too. I was planning on putting up the tree here at the shop today, but I just don't feel like it! I hung the wreath in the door and I'm going to call it good. (Lazy??!!! ME??) I'm going to go home and spend the day with the cat and a good book. :)

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!
