I’m skeptical about this (surprise, surprise, me, skeptical!) new device. If it works though, it sounds like it could be fairly revolutionary for people with celiac disease.

You take a little bit of your meal and put it in the Nima and it tells you if it’s safe to eat or not. Of course, there are some drawbacks. If the gluten contamination isn’t distributed throughout the meal it could provide you with a false sense of safety.

Eating out can be such a terrifying prospect for people with celiac disease. If something like this works, it could make the experience much less stressful and hazardous.
