Nima - The World's First Portable Gluten Sensor

Is your food really gluten-free? Have peace of mind with Nima, a new pocket-sized sensor which allows you to test your food anytime, anywhere.

If you avoid gluten, take about 3 minutes and test your food with Nima and eat with confidence! You can also sync, share and discover other test results with the Nima app.

Belinda from GFree Genius raves "Nima has given me back my social life! Instead of skipping an event this evening because I can't trust the food like I usually do, I went through the buffet line before everyone else and used Nima to test foods I thought may be gluten free -- I was so excited to see the three things I put on my plate got the all-clear from Nima! Nathan and I were able to eat safely and our family enjoyed staying for the entire event! I love seeing that smile!"

How Nima Works

Enjoy 20% off a Nima Starter Kit with code Celiacdotcom20 at check out for celiac.com customers only (good through July 2, 2017).

Nima tests a sample of food on-the-go in three easy steps.

  • Step 1 - Place a pea-sized amount of food into a one-time-use capsule and screw on the cap.
  • Step 2 - Insert capsule into the device.
  • Step 3 - Press the power button and begin testing.

In about two to three minutes, Nima will display the test result - a "gluten found" wheat symbol if gluten is detected or a smile emoticon if the sample has less than 20 parts per million of gluten - the FDA guideline for gluten-free foods.

After testing, Nima syncs with your phone so you can share your test results with other Nima users with similar dietary habits on the Nima iOS app. You can also search for restaurants, see previous test results and find new recommendations nearby, giving you a growing list of friendly gluten-free options right at your fingertips!

To get your own Nima Starter Kit, and to sign up and stay up-to-date with the latest product news, events, and sale information, visit their site.

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...

Well thanks everyone seriously. I'm sure this will get better and I'm thankful this reaction is normal. So guilty when I think of others worse off than me. I will read and read and read until I've taught myself to feel better. And then help others ((((hugs all around)))

I'm curious to hear updates on your EC condition. Thanks

@Larkie how are you lips doing now? Have you found something that worked for you yet? I'm curious and eager for updates from anyone who overcame this condition. Thanks

She tested a single host from the Benedictine sisters and found it to contain 0.0017 mg of gluten. Compare that to the 0.57mg found in a piece of gluten free brea...

You make me want to go to Montreal just to get croissants. I love a warm croissant with ham and swiss, melted, then lettuce, tomato and honey dijon mustard. Yum! I hear Schar sells croissants now. Will have to try once I get better.
