Dear Nima Community,
Today we are thrilled to announce that the Nima Peanut Sensor is available for purchase. It’s been years in the making and we are so excited to share this day with you! At Nima, the first product we introduced to the world was the Nima Gluten Sensor, designed to provide one additional (and shareable) data point to include in your mealtime diligence. We have already shipped the Peanut Sensor to our pre-order community — you can see their stories here.
While we were developing the Nima Peanut Sensor, we talked to hundreds of people avoiding peanut and gathered their feedback to make sure the Nima experience meets our users’ needs. One story in particular sticks in my mind. I chatted with a mother, Anne, who said she sent her son to an allergen-free overnight camp. When she went to pick him up a week later, she said there was something so positively different about her son, but she couldn’t pinpoint the shift. A few days later, it hit her: the burden of living in a world where every mealtime is faced with a potential threat had evaporated for that week at camp. Reducing that mealtime fear had helped him be the most relaxed and free she had ever seen him.
Our hope is that Nima can help bring more of this peace of mind to everyday life. Those who avoid peanut are constantly put in a position where they feel uncertain about their food — we created Nima to help reduce that anxiety. While Nima is never going to guarantee that an entire meal is free of the food item(s) you are avoiding, it is one powerful data point that you didn’t have before. We think about Nima like this: if you are planning to eat it, you might as well let Nima take the first bite.

An Additional Tool: Nima is not a guarantee that the entire meal will be free of peanut if you receive a “no peanut found” result. Nima is one more piece of information to everything you are already doing at mealtime.
You can get the Nima sensor on our site or on Amazon. You can also share the information with your friends and family who are avoiding peanut. We look forward to your feedback and are excited to continue this journey of enabling food transparency for everyone.
See you at the dining table!
