At the intersection of hardware, software and chemistry, we are developing breakthrough consumer products enabling you to know what is in your food, starting with Nima, a portable gluten sensor. We believe mealtime should be about the enjoyment of your food and your company, and not the worry about the potential repercussions of eating something unknown. We exist for you to eat with confidence and stay healthy!
