Nima Sensor at International Food Bloggers Conference

NIMA Sensor was part of a food innovation session at International Food Bloggers Conference. The session was about “Questions the Food Tech Industry is Asking and How Bloggers Can Answer.” Carla, the VP of Marketing, was on the panel with marketing people from Chicory and MiaVina.

It was awesome to hear how NIMA Sensor works with bloggers and influencers to help spread the word about NIMA Sensor. Let’s get real – the device isn’t cheap, it’s an investment, but it’s worth it. And I can say that because I’ve used it! I’ve physically tested food in the device, and my close friends whom I trust – like Taylor from Gluten Away, has used it too. And how could you trust something if you haven’t heard that it’s a superior product from people you trust – like me (hopefully!).

As you know, I am a fan of NIMA Sensor. In fact, here’s a link to a Q&A I did with one of the co-founders of NIMA Sensor! I’ve been lucky enough to see how NIMA Sensor works in person. Since then, I’ve been able to spread the NIMA Sensor message to other people who have similar dietary restrictions – a true wheat allergy or celiac disease, or those highly sensitive to gluten.

But NIMA isn’t just about gluten, dairy and peanuts will be coming soon(ish) and it’s a really exciting thing for our food allergy/celiac community. But it’s also a beautiful technology – to be able to test for yourself, in a quick few minutes, if the food someone else made is safe enough for you – a celiac. While the idea of testing your food for gluten isn’t new, NIMA Sensor does it in a way that is quicker and easier than past technology, disrupting the space of dining with food sensitivities, allergies, and celiac.

This conference aligned with the recent evaluation about the accuracy of NIMA Sensor. You can read the results from the accuracy study here.

While I didn’t learn anything new about NIMA, I did get to see two new revisions on the device from the last time I saw it. #1: A screw on cap with visual indication when the cap is screwed on tight enough. #2: This gluten symbol instead of a frown to indicate the presence of gluten.

    That guy looks familiar – sorry, have to ask, in the picture with the Nima Sensor VP of marketing, do you remember the guy’s name? Thanks! And thank you for all your blog posts and Snapchats, all your social media posts really. I try to follow you everywhere.

      Hi Michelle! I think you’re asking about Yuni Sameshima, the CEO from Chicory!

    The cost of the NIMA Sensor is reasonable … but the disposable capsules could be very expensive over time. Hopefully, the research team will be able to design a food capsule that can be reused after cleaning — one that can have the chemicals added each time it is used. When that happens, I’ll be the first of many in a long line waiting to buy this product!
