I love all kinds of nuts, peanuts especially, and am extremely thankful that I am not allergic to them at all. However, for many people, they run a risk of serious health issues or even death when exposed to peanuts or virtually anything else that has traces of nuts. This makes it extremely important for them to read labels on foods before consuming them, and taking extra care and precaution during the food preparation process to make sure that there is no peanut contamination that occurs along the way. Why not make life easier with the Nima Peanut Sensor? This is a unique device that is able to quickly and easily detect down to 10 parts per million (ppm) of peanut protein, assisting those who suffer from peanut allergies.
Nima is a pioneer in connected food sensors, and the Nima Peanut Sensor is certainly one cool achievement. It will certainly go some way in removing anxiety that is associated with eating out, being tiny and portable. The accuracy rate of detection when it comes to peanut protein ranges from 97.6 to 99.2 percent, and testing is a snap. All that you need to do is to place a pea-sized sample of food into a one-time-use capsule, screw on the cap, insert the capsule into the device, and press the power button. Wait while sipping on your favorite cup of coffee as testing requires approximately 5 minutes, depending on the kind of food or liquid being tested.
The moment the testing is complete, results will be shown in a manner where even the illiterate can figure it out. Should there be any traces of peanut discovered, the sensor will display a clear “Peanut Found” message accompanied by a peanut icon. If it is all clear and good to go, then a smiley face will appear. Even kids will be able to use it without having to go through the instructions.
It won’t be that cheap in the long run though, as the Nima Peanut Sensor costs $229.99 apiece, while a dozen test capsules will set you back by $72, or you can always subscribe to Nima’s service and pick it up at a discounted price of $59 per pack.
