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

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...

I went into menopause at age 42. I didn't know I had celiac until I was 56. Now I know why my menopause was so early.

Have been dealing with splinter hemorrhages on three of my toe nails since February. I did go to my doctor who rightly so did a very complete blood work-up ruling out other diseases such as lupus and RA and referred me to several other doctors to make sure that it was not cancer, endocarditis, or something serious. I went to the doctors. I have done some research on vitamin deficiency and it seems that some link splinter hemorrhages to vitamin C deficiency. For the past 2 1/2 weeks I have been eating 3 clementines a day (in addition to the usual multivitamin that I take) and it seems to be helping the splinter hemorrhages. One has grown out and not returned. Visited my GI doctor today and talked about malabsorption of nutrients as a potential issue. We are doing more blood work and checking nutrient levels. I have to believe it has something to do with the celiac. Sorry I don't have a better answer, but like you am trying to figure this out. Please let me know if you find any answers, and yes, be sure to check with your doctor to rule out anything serious.

You only need one positive on the celiac panel. I tested positive only to the DGP IgA and had a Marsh Stage IIIB intestinal damage. Good luck!

Welcome to the forum. First, you need to get copies of your celiac test to confirm you actually had it done and what the results were. Second, to confirm a diagnosis, you must obtain biopsies via an endoscopy. Were the doctors gastroenterologists? Third you need to research celiac disease. Yes, you can be asymptomatic, but could still have instestinal damage as the small intestine is vast. here is a good place to start: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You might think you are a silent celiac, but ever been anemic? Had your bones checked?

That's good to know about Texas Children's, unfortunately I don't believe they accept our insurance. Our former pediatrician joined with one of their medical groups and we had to find a new one due to insurance. I'll check out their site though.
