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

Ads by Google:

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!

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...

Sometimes this happens, odd as it might be, you have to be eating gluten for the test first off daily. We call it a gluten challenge. Second some people due test negative on the blood test but can have celiac which is why we consider the endoscope and biopsy the golden standard. Also the gluten t...

Thank you @Megamaniac - I don't hear about chest tightness as a symptom of being glutened, so it's good to hear of someone else. My current symptoms aren't bad, just annoying. It's hard to tell if it's anxiety tightening my chest, or something else. But since it's only been happening since I ate ...

This has been my life for the past three years! Oh man! I have had every muscle and nerve test known to man and...nothing. The doctors finally stopped trying and just referred me for cognitive behavior therapy. I'm still confused about the negative blood test though?

They use the same fryers for everything, so the fresh fried corn tortilla chips are gluten contaminated when they get dropped in the fryers.....

Yes, gluten ataxia is one form where it effects your brain and nervous system. I lose feelings in my hands and feet, have all kinds of muscle issues when even traces get introduced via CC or walking through the bakery section of the grocery store -_ - Last time I got glutened at a restaurant back...
