My name is Rachael Monk and I am a year 11 GCSE Food Technology student at Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham. As part of our coursework we have to design and develop a product suitable for somebody with a special dietary requirement. From previous research, I have decided to make a product for somebody with coeliacs disease. This shall be a dessert aimed at the teenage market and shall hopefully be an extension and improvement to products already available at the moment. I would be very grateful if you could please fill in and return this questionnaire to me, as it will be very useful to allow me to gauge an idea as to the type, size and cost of product that people would prefer.

1) What are your 3 favourite desserts?

1) 3 favorite desserts: hmmm.....brownies, choc. pudding.......most things chocolately, it appears. :D Oh, before limiting dairy, I used to periodically eat an entire tub of icing (the cream cheese kind of Duncan Heinz...sp?).....mmmm :P

2) Hmm...I don't really have something I dislike, but I guess I don't really understand the big deal about cake. I'm not a big fan of ice cream, but vanilla ice cream is good on hot brownies :D

3) I live with 3 people (a brother and parents)

4) Regularly eat with.....breakfast is often alone, lunch usually with 1-2 other people (during the summer, but when school is in session it's with 10 other kids at a table and 80 others in a lunchroom), and dinner with 2 or 3.

5) Home cooked because I don't trust restaurants, but also because I've never been a fan of restaurants.....I like my mom's cooking :)

6) I live in NYC and I don't know the exact conversions.......anyway, it would all depend on the quality of the product. One point to make, though: you can charge a lot more for gluten-free foods and it'll be "reasonable" to the consumer, simply because nearly all gluten-free foods not made by mainstream brands (such as Lays) are expensive. So you can raise your price -- maybe even double it from what you'd charge for the regular, gluten-containing food.

Hope this is helpful :)

3. live with : 3 others

5. prefer: fast food, or convenience food

Here are my 2cents....

1) fav desserts- anything chocolate: flourless chocolate cake, chocolate sorbet, chocolate cookies

2) least favorites: cheesecake, creme brulee, white/yellow cake (boring!)

3) live with one other person (husband)

4)usually eat with my husband only; I take my lunch into work and usually eat at my desk, but sometimes with friends; also the occcasional dinner party.

5) I cook homemade gluten-free-meals everynight unless we go out (no take out, fast food, etc..). When we do go out it is either to an upscale restaurant or for sushi (take my own soy sauce).

6) mmmmm how much would I pay? For an incredible gluten-free chocolate dessert in a restaurant perhaps as much as $10, but for a single serving of something in a package maybe a few $$ only.

Good Luck,

Pam

4. Ocassionaly I'll have friends over, but most often I eat alone.

5. Good ol home cookin w/ local produce.

6. 2-7 dollars depending on the portion. Most gluten-free deserts are so expensive that I usually end up making them myself.

6) How much do you feel is a reasonable price to pay (per portion) for a dessert?

based on the current exachange rate, I'd say definitely under 2 pounds (under 3.5 dollars) for something you'd buy at the store and take home - even at that price I'd be unlikely to buy it often at all.

1) What are your 3 favourite desserts?

Strawberry Shortcake, Dreyers Ice Cream (Rocky Road and Strawberry are my favorite), the boxed mix cheese cake like Royal brand (I know it isn't like the real stuff, but it brings back childhood memories and I never had "real" cheesecake until I was a teenager and it is too rich). I haven't had the last two things since being gluten/dairy free. I have a fourth, not really a dessert, but a candy. Red licorice. Like Red Vines! I miss it terribly. WHy do they have to put wheat in licorice???

2) What are your 3 least favourite desserts?

yellow cake, really rich chocolate desserts, jello desserts

3) How many other people do you live with?

4 others, husband and three kids.

4) How many other people do you most regularly eat with?

Breakfast is eaten usually with 1 or two others and lunch and dinner with 3-4 people.

5) What meals do you prefer?

I usually cook all our meals, but used to enjoy eating out once or twice a week. Now I get sick almost every time I eat out!

6) How much do you feel is a reasonable price to pay (per portion) for a dessert?

Per portion, I would not really want to spend more than $2-$3, but it would depend on the dessert and if I had to cook it or if it came ready to eat. I'd certainly pay a bit more for convenience...

    • Blood results - odd
      My results were similar – Low ferritin but normal B12. Although my ferritin levels were low, my Iron serum levels were normal. So might be worth getting your iron levels checked out to see if you have any deficiency in Iron. Also I was deficient in Vitamin D, which is perhaps more of a problem in England rather than the US - Our milk isn’t supplemented with vit D and we obviously have less sunshine.
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/
    • Blood results - odd
      Your ferritin was very low!  My result was a 2 when I was diagnosed.    I hard a hard time breathing and the fatigue was awful due to low hemoglobin levels.  But after going gluten free and taking iron for a few months, I quickly recovered from iron-deficiency anemia.  I still have hemologobin levels that are slightly below range due to Thalassemia which is genetic and my body has adjusted for it.   My B12 and folate levels are  super high.  My B12 is over 2000!  Yeah, I googled and ruled out cancers, etc.  Looks like some of us do not process man-made B12 often included in supplements.  I opted for natural sources of B-12 and folate and my levels have come down a bit.   Let us know your results.  Read the Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum for tips.   Be patient.  It can take months, to years to feel good.  But it will happen!    
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Welcome to the forum!   Well.....in theory you should be able to heal within a few months (grow new villi, etc.).  The reality is that it takes so much longer -- like a year or two (I kid you not!)  Why?  celiac disease can damage more than just the gut.  Depending on what was damaged (nerves, bones, etc) can impact healing time.  The gluten-free diet has a very steep learning curve.  It's not just giving up gluten.  It's avoiding cross contamination.  Becoming an expert in reading labels.  Learning to avoid foods processed on shared lines in a facility.  Then there are intolerances that most celiacs develop.  The most common ones is lactose.  Why?  The villi tips release the enzymes to digest lactose.  No villi tips?  Then you can not digest lactose.  Often this is temporary, but if you are one of the many adults in this world, you might already be lactose intolerant or might become so as you age.   Other intolerances that members often report include corn or soy.   Some celiacs react to oats, even gluten free.  So avoid oats for six months.  So, try cutting out dairy for a few days and see how you feel.  Then add in those items that have the least lactose:  hard cheese, butter, yogurt and see how you feel.   Avoid eating out for six months until you have seen some improvement.   Read our Newbie 101 thread under coping for more ideas!  Hope you feel better soon.   
    • Recovery diet, nutrition, leaky gut?
      I am having my endoscopy on Tuesday. I want to begin to heal my gut asap. I spent this morning in the ER with stabbing pain in my right shoulder blade, pain to the left of my belly button and vomiting. It's referred pain from my small intestine. I couldn't move or breathe hardly it hurt so bad. I NEED to get everything together to heal my gut asap. I don't want to ever go through this again. What are your recommendations? I've been reading a bit on leaky gut - anyone have good experience/links Or would the autoimmune diet be better? Are they one in the same? I know I am also reacting to casein and possibly potatoes.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
