    Nima Portable Sensor Detects Gluten in Foods

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    After years of dreaming about such a device, a pocket-sized home gluten sensor is finally here!

    I received mine and immediately began testing products that I eat often, just to make sure that they are really gluten-free. It is well known that even products that are labeled gluten-free sometimes test positive for gluten.

    After opening a fairly large box that it was beautifully packaged in, I was surprised to see that it is indeed pocket-sized! The quick start guide allowed me to run a test almost immediately, and the first product I tested was a can of re-fried black beans that I eat regularly on corn tostada shells.

    The test was very simple to run: I took a pea-sized sample of the beans and put them in the one-time-use capsule, inserted the capsule into the sensor, pressed start and waited about 3 minutes. The sensor made some noises while running, and then I saw a smiley face appear, which meant that my beans were safe and below 20 ppm (if the wheat icon shows up it isn't safe).

    Another key feature Nima offers is their smartphone app that allows you to share and upload test results with other Nima users.

    If you are looking for the ultimate peace of mind, I highly recommend Nima Sensor!

    Celiac.com 10/21/2010 - Focaccia is a flat baked Italian bread that most of us on a gluten-free diet would never get the opportunity to enjoy...until now! 
    I recently came across a gluten-free focaccia bread by GlutenOut that is made in Italy--and their products can be shipped frozen right to your door.  I was pleasantly surprised with how well my order was packed, but honestly I did not have high expectations due to my past experience with gluten-free bread. 
    I put the gluten-free focaccia in the oven for about 7 minutes and at first glance I was very impressed with the presentation of the finished product.  I was trying to decide if I s...

    If your looking for a quick grab and go breakfast or a satisfying snack that is gluten free, dairy free and also vegan, then I would suggest Amy's Gluten-free Tofu Scramble Breakfast Wrap.  You can either microwave it just shy of 2 minutes, or put it in the oven if you prefer a crispier wrap. 
    This wrap is filled with organic vegetables like tomatoes, zucchini, mushrooms and spinach.  Amy's wrap also has organic hash browns which I think gives it more of that “comfort food” feeling, along with plenty of organic tofu of course. 
    In my opinion, this was well seasoned, and I really liked how they blended all of these nutritional ingredients to make...

    When I first put an orange flavored TruJoy Organic Original Fruit Chew in my mouth and began chewing, I soon noticed an intense explosion of orange flavor. It reminded me a bit of the Starburst candies that I used to eat as a child—but instead of containing corn syrup and artificial junk—these chews are organic and contain real fruit juice and cane sugar.
    The texture and chewiness was great, and it seemed to last forever. Other flavors in the package included strawberry, cherry and lemon, and each of them was just as wonderful and intense as the orange.
    I also got a bag of TruJoy Organic Choco Chews, and again, when I put one in my mouth and che...

    Any company that has been around as long as Van's has must be doing something right. For the few of you who don't know of Van's, they are a true pioneer in the prepared, ready-to-eat gluten-free food world. I've known of their products and have been gladly eating them for close to 20 years now, and chances are, so have you. When Van's got in contact with me recently to review one of their top gluten-free waffles, "Van's Simply Delicious Totally Original Gluten-Free Waffles," I jumped at the opportunity.
    The base ingredient of Van's Simply Delicious Totally Original Gluten-Free Waffles is whole grain brown rice, which is probably why just two of...
