Tools For Food Allergy Sufferers [Sensors + Apps]

Tech Tools To Help Prevent Allergic Reactions
  1. If you suffer from food allergies or shop for anyone who does, you know that it can often be difficult to find "safe" products at the grocery store. Try the Spoon Guru App. Simply scan foods labels and the app will alert you of any concerns based upon your (or your family member's) preset profile. (User must register for an account and create a profile, select allergens of concern and save.) Free. iOS and Android.

  2. Do you or does someone you know suffer from a peanut allergy? A new consumer product called the Nima Peanut Sensor1 (a handheld device + associated mobile app) might be of help. "Nima is recognized as a leader in allergen research and has been awarded a grant from the National Institute of Health to develop the peanut sensor." This is technology moving the needle in the right direction, a potentially life-saving one. Remember to read the small print at the product website.

  3. What about gluten? Do you have celiac disease (also called sprue or coeliac) or suffer from a gluten sensitivity? There's also a Nima Gluten Sensor (a handheld device + associated mobile app). Remember to read the small print at the product website.
