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) 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 :)

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.

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...

    • To answer some of your questions.... Non celiac gluten sensitivity does not cause any damage to the small intestine so that is not the source of the "little holes or bumps".  You need to get her records including the report of the endoscopy to see exactly what it says as well as the pathology report of the biopsies. You should always get medical records anyway & keep a copy for yourself. How many biopsies did he take? There should be a minimum of 4, ideally 6. The small intestine is very vast even in a small child. An adults is the size of a tennis court! That's a whole lot of territory so biopsies can miss damage especially when enough of them are not taken! She has 2 positives on the serum panel. This crap about "weak" positives should be thrown out of the nomenclature! A positive is a positive, weak or not! Her DgP IGG is way over the range and extremely telling. As far as my knowledge goes, there is nothing else that causes a positive DgP IGG other than celiac disease. False positives are really rare and to have 2 false positives would be astronomically rare! You are right & smart that she really does need an official diagnosis! IMHO, keep her on gluten for right now. Get a second opinion pronto & I believe you'll be able to get her a dx based on the 4 out of 5 rule if nothing else. I wouldn't think it's going to take more than a month to get to see another doc for a second opinion. Then you can take her off gluten. Kids heal up really fast, way faster than us old geezers! I'm sure as others  wake up & get on their computers they will be along to voice their knowledge. I am in the eastern time zone & rise before the birds so I was on here early. Hang in there mom! You're doing the right thing!
    • Is coffee glutem free or not ?  Always wondered about this ............. got to have my coffee... I am new to this  , very new .........
    • Now that my initial rage has calmed a tad.... your daughter has to fulfill 4 out of 5 of the diagnostic criteria. Second opinion can do a gene test. If positive, then she will have4 out of 5 of the dx criteria to dx without a positive biopsy. See: http://www.gastro.org/news_items/a-biopsy-should-not-be-required-to-make-the-diagnosis which says in part: The presence of signs and symptoms compatible with celiac disease. Positive serology screening (high serum levels of anti-TTG and/or EMA). Presence of the predisposing genes HLA-DQ2 and/or –DQ8. Histological evidence of auto-insult of jejunal mucosa typical of celiac disease. Resolution of the symptoms and normalization of serology test following the implementation of a gluten-free diet.   Also see: http://www.tenderfoodie.com/blog/2014/5/1/dr-fasano-on-new-gut-autoimmune-research-autism-clearing-up.html She can get a dx after her symptoms resolve on a gluten-free diet!
    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!
