Selecting gluten free food is easy with this device that too in just 2 min: Nima from 6SensorLabs
Today we have heard a very interesting story, introducing a device that checks whether a food contains gluten, in less than two minutes. The device clearly shows a face smiley or sad based on gluten content in food so that you ca happily take a proven food based on your diet.
Even though we are careful in taking the food especially when we are a heart patient or intolerant to some foods, we end up having them unintentionally as there will always be chance for cross contamination. This is a serious issue which we tend to ignore as gluten is an all time enemy for Heart patients.
There are different degrees of reaction to gluten consumption, but those who suffer mild reactions or sensitivity to gluten, and those with intolerance or allergy to gluten should only make a habit of eating gluten-free food. It is important to know whether a food contains the protein or not. Obviously, all who suffer intolerance or allergy to gluten already know the food that they can eat and those they can not eat but there are times that mislabeling or dubious processing may raise doubt about whether a food has gluten or not.
To do this, a company called 6SensorLabs has developed a simple device called Nima that aims to make life easier for those who are in this situation. By putting a piece of food in a disposable capsule, the Nima detects if the food has gluten or other pathogens such as lactose or peanuts, which is configurable for different types of intolerance.
It only takes 2 min for the device to detect if the food contains the intolerant protien that you confirgured. 6SensorLab Nima is still in phase of development, but already preorders are already available in their website, at a price of $250.
In any case, the creation of a device that checks to see if a food has gluten in less than two minutes is good news which will save trouble to Cecelia patients and all who suffer some degree of sensitivity to the consumption of this protein and hopefully be developed soon for the rest of intolerance and food allergies, ever more frequent in our society, unfortunately.
