Is your food really gluten-free? Find out in just a few minutes with Nima, the world's first portable gluten sensor


Just take a tiny sample of food, put it in a capsule, and put the capsule in Nima. Nima works hard so you don't have to.


Nima is the fastest gluten tester on the market, letting you know if there is 20ppm or more of gluten in your food sample in about 3 minutes.


One-time-use capsules are pre-loaded with our proprietary chemistry and ready-to-go as soon as you are. No cleaning, no re-setting, no refilling. Just grab a new capsule for every test.


Nima fits in a pocket or purse. Bring Nima to dates, vacations, business meals, or wherever you're eating.


It's a food data lovefest - share what you have tested and see what others are testing to stay one step ahead of gluten!
