Tested Foods List

Below is a running list of the different foods our Research & Development team have tested in our lab with Nima. Our team tests both free-from foods and versions spiked with various levels of gluten or peanut for testing. This list is brand agnostic. To see specific packaged food brands or restaurant foods, please download the Nima App on Android or iOS.

Our team follows the same instructions provided to Nima customers when testing foods. Best practices are:

  • Hard Foods : soften
  • Dense / Thick Foods : smaller amount
  • Sticky Foods : smaller amount, small pieces, add water
  • Dry / Powdery Foods : add water
  • High fat : smaller amount, add water
  • Brightly colored : small amount, add water
  • Acidic : small amount, add water
  • Puffed : larger amount
  • Liquid : careful not to overfill

Full instructions can be found in the Nima Gluten Manual & Nima Peanut Manual.

If we determined a special testing method or approach was helpful in obtaining an accurate result, the information is captured below.

Add water Do not test Use small sample Use large sample

If you ever receive a surprising result – especially on a packaged food with clear labeling – contact our team (support@nimasensor.com) and we can support further investigation with you and the brand.
