Many people can have allergic reactions to certain foods. That is why it is important for some to know the ingredients of what comes into what they eat in order to avoid suffering from food allergies. This is all the more important for people who are allergic to gluten, Unfortunately for them, gluten is a protein found in many wheat-based products. People who are intolerant to gluten may need to know first whether meals they eat are gluten-free or not. The Nima Sensor can help them do just that.
The Nima Sensor is a portable device that can help people know if certain foods may contain gluten. It comes with a sensor and a one-time-use capsule where users put in a food sample for testing. The capsule then fits into the Nima Sensor and will check if the food sample contains gluten. The capsule itself is pre-loaded with proprietary chemistry and ready for use. It is a simple and convenient device for people who are always concerned about gluten in food. It is portable enough to fit into one’s bag and can test out any type of food for gluten, both solid and liquid types. The data that users get when testing foods can sync up with a user’s smartphone via Bluetooth and can also be shared online with other users to keep updated with foods that have already been tested for gluten. The Nima Sensor is now available for those who yearn for a gluten-free lifestyle. Users can get a starter kit from the Nima site for $279. It includes the sensor along with 3 testing capsules, with new additional capsules purchased separately when needed.
