Nima

Nima, a connected food sensor, allows you to test your food on the go, anytime, anywhere for gluten. People who need to avoid gluten now have an extra data point before they take a bite. Nima gluten in liquids and solid foods in just a few minutes. You can also share and search test results in the Nima app from others in the community.

Nima has two components: an electronic sensor and a one-time-use capsule, which contains proprietary chemistry to run the test. First, you take a pea-sized amount of food or liquid and put it into one of the capsules. Twist on the cap, and insert the capsule into the sensor. After pressing start, you’ll wait about two to three minutes. If Nima detects any gluten, it will display a wheat symbol. If Nima shows a smiley face, the sample is less than 20 parts per million of gluten - the FDA guideline for gluten-free foods.

After testing, Nima syncs with your iPhone via Bluetooth and shares the results with other Nima users across the country in a mobile app, creating a crowdsourced database of gluten-free friendly foods. You can search for restaurants, see your previous test results and find new recommendations nearby. Nima will be launching a sensor for peanut later in 2017.

Prize description: (1) Nima Starter Kit for gluten containing the sensor, three one-time-use capsules, a charging cable, and a carrying pouch, and one (1) refill pack containing twelve one-time-use capsules. The value of these items is $351.95.
