Nima for restaurants: a plate of prepared salad

As a restaurant owner, manager or staff, you may be curious about what Nima means for your restaurant.

What is Nima?

Nima is a connected, portable device that tests foods for gluten or peanut. A rapidly growing population avoids allergens to maintain a healthy diet or to not get sick. Nima gives diners the ability to instantly identify threats in their food.

Why would someone be using Nima?

When a patron is using Nima in your restaurant, it’s likely because eating gluten or peanut will cause them physical harm or discomfort. Nima will help them identify allergens in food even when kitchen staff might have missed it. There are lots of reasons why people avoid eating gluten or peanut, but most are health-related and potentially very serious.

Customers with celiac may require a little extra peace of mind when dining in your restaurant, even if you have gluten-free options available. Others are using Nima to explore new restaurants and/or new menu items, and beta testers for Nima have tested items that their dining companions have ordered to see if it’s something they could potentially order in the future.

The reasons vary, but all in all, it probably means they are excited to be able to dine out and have an extra layer of information to help them make safe decisions about what to eat.
