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...

I agree with the others that this looks like a positive celiac disease diagnosis (and I didn't really see anything that indicates a weak positive). What I have never seen before is the "celiac cascade." After thinking on what that is for several minutes, I concluded it is an indication of positiv...

hey i've been vegetarian for 8 years and gluten free for almost a year. its difficult since they are kind of opposites. i actually just noticed the advertisemnts from the cancer counil here is australia now has meat listed next to alchol, cigarettes and the sun. a few years ago when i read a...

I'm going to guess the additive effect of a few months of mystery CC glutenings (since resolved), plus heavy training load. The last time I had my antibodies/iron checked in Feb 2016, both were good. Since diagnosis to that point, I'd been taking iron supplements only sporadically, but stopped al...

I'd love to visit! I'm half Irish and half English and would so adore to see Ireland. I loved England when I visited a million years ago. People were so kind.

Whatever you do, run to the store now and eat donuts and bagels. Because I think when your endoscopy is done and over with you're not going to see them again. There are a lot of really good gluten-free cookies, cupcakes, brownies, etc. Donuts and bagels... not so much. Hope you feel better...
