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...

Morning guys. So long story short. Lost 10 kg back late last year. Stress related I believe. ( I Understand this is a big factor with celiacs) Tested. Found anti bodies in my blood. Doctor states potential Celiacs. Have endoscopy. Doctor who takes procedure doubts I have it. ...

Getting a celiac disease diagnosis is shocking. Expect to go through all the stages of grief. Your best defense is to learn how to read labels, avoid cross contamination and consider eating as few processed foods for a few weeks. It may speed healing (wish someone would have advised me to do s...

That is very helpful. Thank you so much.

I would read it as ?high?. In any case, you were positive on the TTG and the DGP. You only need one positive. I had pretty severe intestinal damage and never even had a positive on the EMA or the TTG even when they were re-run several times during follow-up visits.

Thank you! That does help. I was just confused about the ?negative? under the EMA Titer when my level says ?1:40 high?. Any insight there? Just wondering if it?s further confirming or denying? I first thought confirming.
