I’m really excited about today’s episode. My goodness. When I first heard about this piece of technology, I think my jaw actually dropped. I was like; no way, this actually exists! This is so neat. I am so excited today to welcome Shireen Yates, owner and founder of Nima! And this little gadget; she’s going to tell you much more about it. {laughs} She knows the story better than I do! About how everything came into play and how the really incredible Nima gluten sensor is now available to us today. <br> <br> But if you guys caught the review I did on my blog, I reviewed the Nima sensor because it’s this little pocket-sized piece of technology. It’s incredibly slick. It pairs with your phone, and allows you, if you are extremely sensitive to gluten, or even have an allergy like folks who have celiac, to be able to test food in real time and get an answer as far as is there actual gluten, the gluten protein, found in my food. Because so much of what’s out there, even though it’s labeled as gluten free, there could be cross contamination. <br> <br> And it’s really; it’s an answered prayer in a lot of ways for many folks. Because we don’t have to wonder. We don’t have to wait until we get home and we get that stomachache. So it’s just such a neat piece of technology, and I’m really excited. So thank you, first and foremost, Shireen, for putting this together and working with your amazing team. But welcome to the Fed and Fit podcast. We’re excited to hear about your story. We’re excited to hear more about Nima. And just welcome to the show! <br> <br> Shireen Yates: Thank you! I’m so excited to be here. It’s just an honor. We love the review you did of Nima, and very, very excited to just talk about the product, and really how it’s fitting into people’s lives since we launched. <br> <br>
