Nima Portable Sensor Detects Gluten in Foods
After years of dreaming about such a device, a pocket-sized home gluten sensor is finally here!
I received mine and immediately began testing products that I eat often, just to make sure that they are really gluten-free. It is well known that even products that are labeled gluten-free sometimes test positive for gluten.
After opening a fairly large box that it was beautifully packaged in, I was surprised to see that it is indeed pocket-sized! The quick start guide allowed me to run a test almost immediately, and the first product I tested was a can of re-fried black beans that I eat regularly on corn tostada shells.
The test was very simple to run: I took a pea-sized sample of the beans and put them in the one-time-use capsule, inserted the capsule into the sensor, pressed start and waited about 3 minutes. The sensor made some noises while running, and then I saw a smiley face appear, which meant that my beans were safe and below 20 ppm (if the wheat icon shows up it isn't safe).
Another key feature Nima offers is their smartphone app that allows you to share and upload test results with other Nima users.
If you are looking for the ultimate peace of mind, I highly recommend Nima Sensor!
