    Find Out If Your Food is Really Gluten-free with a Nima Sensor

    The Nima Sensor is the first and only portable sensor that tests food for gluten in just a few minutes. Perfect for dining out, school cafeterias, and travel, Nima is an extra precaution that helps you feel confident about your food.

    Trusted science
    Nima is pioneering this new technology and has been awarded funding from the National Institutes of Health. The antibody-based chemistry was developed by MIT scientists to enable use right at the dinner table.  Learn more →

    Easy to use

    1. Nima is the fastest and easiest lab test you'll ever run.
    2. Put a little bit of food into a new Nima gluten test capsule.
    3. Insert capsule into the sensor and press start.
    4. In a few minutes, Nima will display the test result. 

    If gluten is detected, a wheat symbol will appear. Otherwise, a smile will show up if the sample contains less than 20 parts per million (ppm) of gluten. 

    Nima users can then share their results to the Nima app and with the gluten-free community. With a growing map of Nima-tested restaurants and packaged foods, anyone can browse a myriad of gluten-free options at their fingertips! Learn more →

    What People Are Saying
    "I cannot say enough about this product. It has given myself and my daughter (both celiac) the confidence to eat outside of our own kitchen. We began avoiding eating out after being glutened time and time again without knowing exactly the source of the gluten. Now that we have our beloved Nima, we can be completely sure whether or not we are safe to eat the product we have tested. Seriously, this product has given us freedom that we haven't felt for many years since being diagnosed as celiac. We quite literally do not leave home without it. It is absolutely worth every penny.” 
    — Vickie E.

    "We have two kids recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease. Nima makes the difficult adjustment to a gluten free diet so much easier. Since getting Nima, we have been able to take family trips and eat out at restaurants again. It was surprising to see how many things that say “gluten free” have cross-contamination."
    — Mark G.

    Payment plans and FSA/HSA Reimbursement
    Since Nima is an important part of living a gluten-free lifestyle, Nima’s Gluten Sensor and Test Capsules are FSA/HSA reimbursable. You can also pay through PayPal, or through a payment plan offered on their website.

    While I eat anything except beets, liver, and haggis, I pre-ordered a NIMA gluten tester as a present for my Celiac partner, and it recently arrived. We are looking forward to a more relaxed dining-out experience knowing we have the option of verifying staff statements when they do not give us confidence, which happens not too infrequently. Up until now, our only choices were living with the insecurity, or leaving and finding another place to eat, which is not a great way to start an evening...

    CeliAct Gluten-Free Nutritional Supplement
    Since being diagnosed with celiac disease I have found that adding gluten-free vitamins to my diet has been particularly helpful with my overall healing process.  Unfortunately, the vast assortment of gluten-free vitamins that were necessary to incorporate into my daily diet had quickly taken over my cupboard, and it wasn't long before I started to grow tired of the whole process of figuring out which vitamins I needed to take, and when to take them.
    I was looking for an easy way to simplify this whole process, and that is when I discovered CeliAct, a nutritional supplement made especially for people with celiac disease.  This is not just your typical gluten-free multi-vitamin, as it also contains a bone building formula, an intestinal healing blend, a probiotic defense and digestive enzyme support.  That basically puts everything that I was trying to take before into a single pill, and according to the recommended dosage I would only have to take six of them a day. 
    I was eager to give CeliAct a try because I was just about ready to give up on my old vitamin regimen.  The size each CeliAct pill is comparable in size to your average vitamin, and I found them to be very gentle on my stomach (and I have a very sensitive stomach so that is saying a lot!). 
    Due to the simplicity of only having to take CeliAct twice a day, I found it very easy to include them in my daily routine. When traveling I can just throw some in a bag instead of having to bring multiple types of pills.  I feel better knowing that I am giving my body the extra nutrients it was deprived of for so long, and the convenience that CeliAct provides makes it so easy that I can't justify not taking them.  Discovering this new product has been so beneficial that I just had to share the news!

    Panasonic SD-YR2500 Automatic Gluten-Free Bread Maker Review
    I've now been gluten-free for over 20 years, yet I've never broken down and purchased a bread machine, nor have I ever used one. It should go without saying that I am also eating very mediocre gluten-free bread.
    Recently I was given the opportunity to review Panasonic's new SD-YR2500 Automatic Gluten-Free Bread Maker. This is the first bread maker made by Panasonic specifically for making gluten-free breads. Needless to say, I was very excited to finally get to test out this machine and discover why they are so popular among those who are on a gluten-free diet.
    The machine arrived undamaged, which was no surprise given how well it was packaged—it was double boxed, and the inside display box included molded Styrofoam that protected the machine very well. It took only a few minutes to unpack and set it up.
    My next step was selecting a recipe to use—I went with one that has been on Celiac.com for many years, and is highly rated. I decided to substitute the different flours used in the recipe with Bob's Red Mill 1-1 Baking Flour, as I didn't have the many different flours listed in the original recipe. Basically I used a highly modified version of a recipe that I've never tried before, and made it in a bread machine that I've never used before—how well could this possibly turn out, right?
    I hope you are surprised to learn that, all things considered, it was easily the best gluten-free bread I've ever made, and was light years beyond the packaged stuff I've been eating for years (the company shall remain nameless, but you're probably eating it too!). I think the scientific control that the bread machine offers, for example, the timed mixing and kneading processes, the long rising time and the perfectly even baking temperature help make even a total amateur baker like myself look like a professional.
    My experience with this gluten-free bread machine left me with confidence and the feeling that I can easily improve on an already improvised recipe, and have fun experimenting with different versions of it (I'm going for a rosemary loaf next time!). Overall Panasonic's SD-YR2500 was very easy to use, and the nice thing about this bread machine is that it will do all of the hard work for you. Just add the ingredients select the ideal setting and turn it on. You'll never get sore kneading bread by hand again.
    My first experience with Panasonic's SD-YR2500 was an excellent one, and it made me wonder: Why have I waited so long for excellent gluten-free bread?

    Regular Girl Prebiotic Fiber & Probiotic Blend (Gluten-Free)
    Celiac.com 12/29/2015 - Regular Girl is a gluten-free prebiotic fiber with a probiotic blend that is specifically designed "for the woman on the go." The beautiful and highly-functional packaging that it comes in makes this point clear—15 convenient serving sized packets are included in an athletic-style, non-breakable plastic bottle—which makes it very easy to take with you to the office, on vacation, or anywhere else you want to go (it is also available in 30-day supply bulk powder).
    Each Regular Girl serving packet contains 6 grams of the company's proprietary "Sunfiber," which is designed to eliminate any gas or bloating that can be caused by other dietary fiber supplements. This supplement is unique because it also contains 8 billion CFU of Bifidobacterium lactis to help normalize bacterial gut flora and improve calcium absorption.
    Regular Girl packets are very easy to use—just mix one with 6-8 ounces of water or any non-carbonated beverage. What I really liked about them is that they aren't flavored, so they don't contain any artificial flavors or colors, which makes them very easy to drink by themselves or with your favorite beverage or smoothie.
    Overall, this is the perfect dietary fiber supplement for anyone with celiac disease, and especially for women who appreciate well-designed packaging which allows you to take them with you wherever you want to go.

    The new gluten-free cookbook "A World of Flavor" is clearly a labor of love for its authors, Amber Barrett and Nancy Miller. Amber is also a gifted photographer, and the photographs in this book could be the best of any cookbook I've ever seen.
    On top of this, the book includes some amazing recipes that everyone will like, including: Hot Wings, Bacon and Cheddar Scones, Donuts, Sandwich Bread, Rocky Road Brownies, Crepes, General Tso's Chicken, Croutons, and many more (I counted 77).
    From breakfasts, appetizers, desserts, main dishes and snacks, to salads, vegetables, and side dishes, this outstanding gluten-free cookbook has much to offer anyone who is on a gluten-free diet.
