Why We're Doing This

Every day, people are becoming more aware and more concerned about what hidden things are in the food they’re eating. Our Founders have long struggled with various food allergies and lived with loved ones with Celiac Disease, and we’re tired of repeatedly wondering if our food is safe to eat.

Born out of MIT, our founding team decided to build a company to bring clarity and trust back to the dinner table. With our breakthrough technology, we’re creating a brand new product category that will enable anyone to quickly and discreetly detect minute traces of toxins in their food.

Our first product is a portable allergen sensor, allowing you to test your food for gluten before you eat it. Anywhere. At any time.
