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 →
- Nima is the fastest and easiest lab test you'll ever run.
- Put a little bit of food into a new Nima gluten test capsule.
- Insert capsule into the sensor and press start.
- 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.
