Nima gluten sensor
Available: In stock
Nima is the world's first portable gluten sensor. Accurate, fast, and small enough to be held in your hand, Nima takes the guesswork out of living with gluten intolerance and lets you analyse your food right at the table. Simply collect your food sample in the capsule, insert into Nima – and you’ll remove uncertainty in just a few minutes.
- Extreme accuracy: Nima detects gluten at 20 ppm and above with 96.9% accuracy.
- Convenient size: small enough to fit in your pocket or bag and bring with you everywhere you go.
- Quick results: Nima analyses your sample in under 5 minutes and tells you if there’s any gluten detected.
Food allergies are fast becoming more common across the world. Among these, an estimated 66 million people in North America and Europe have some form of intolerance to gluten, a protein found in common grains such as wheat, barley and rye.
Unfortunately for those living with gluten intolerance, the only treatment is avoidance. But since gluten is found in all kinds of food, often even where you wouldn’t expect it, even avoidance can be a challenge. This is where Nima - the world’s first portable gluten sensor - comes in.
Nima was founded by Shireen Yates and Scott Sundvor, who have both long struggled with food allergies and sensitivities, and who’ve had plenty of experience with the frustrations of dining out, not knowing if the food they ordered was truly safe to eat. Out of that struggle, Nima was born.
Nima lets you test your food anywhere, anytime. It can test for the presence of gluten with extreme accuracy in nearly all types of foods in under three minutes time (some limitations apply - refer to FAQs).
And it's backed by science. Nima’s antibody-based chemistry was developed by MIT scientists to be faster, cheaper, and usable right at the dinner table. Nima is optimised to detect 20 ppm (parts per million) of gluten, the standard for labelling a food item as gluten-free.
