SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – Nima Labs has developed a sensor and companion app with which users can detect gluten in their food. The 3-inch tall, triangular sensor contains disposable capsules. Diners put a small sample of food into the capsule, and insert it into the device, which mixes the food into a solution that detects gluten down to 20 parts per million, which is the U.S. Food and Drug Administration classification for gluten-free products. Every time someone runs a test, the result is automatically sent to a Nima app, where diners can enter information about where and what they ate, and whether the food contained gluten.
