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...

    • You are right, the tests could be invalid.   All the celiac tests require you to be on a gluten-containing diet.  It is up to you to decide if you want to go gluten free.  You can do it.  Believe me, I know.  Hubby is not officially diagnosed.  He went gluten-free 15 years ago, based on the rather poor advice from my allergist and his GP.  It worked though.  But he would be the first to tell you that I have had way more support in terms of family and medical.    We think he has it.  Both of our families are riddled with autoimmine disorders.  I am the first to be diagnosed.   My Aunt went gluten free per the advice of her Chiropractor.  Her other doctors never suspected celiac disease.  The diet obviously worked for her.  Her daughter (my cousin) is a nurse.  She had an endoscopy but they did not check for celiac disease.  She chose to go gluten-free too since it worked for her mom.  Both will not do a gluten challenge.  However, my diagnosis has helped them get proper medical treatment.  My Aunt is very active in a celiac support group.    Now everyone in my family knows about celiac disease.  My own niece was just diagnosed with Crohn's, but her GI did test and will continue to test her for celiac disease.  You can develop additional autoimmune disorders at any time.   So far, a few other members have been tested.  No one else had had a celiac disease diagnosis yet.  Time will tell.  If I can save someone from the misery of struggling to get a diagnosis, then I can feel good.   Now, an official diagnosis will help you adhere to the diet .  You can get follow-up care.  Get checked for other things like SIBO, H. Pylori and cancer.  But ultimately, it is up to you.   Whatever you decided to do, please consider a family health history chart.  You might someday help a grandchild.   The stool tests?  In all my research, leading celiac experts do not recommend them.  http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/  
    • The procedure is a breeze. You will go in, be sedated and go to sleep for a short nap and then it's over. Some people will have a bit of a sore throat but not everyone does. For me the hardest part of the endo was not being able to drink coffee when I got up. You seem to have been back on gluten for long enough to have the test but as CLady said there is a good chance your blood work may be negative. In your case you may want to continue eating gluten after the biopsy at least until you get your blood results. If they are negative consider going a bit longer and getting them redone.
    • I think the gene tests are accurate.  Not sure if thier interpretation of them is.   If you actually think have Celiac, you need to know that.  You  need to know how careful you must be.  You need a diagnosis to get gluten-free food in hospitals or nursing homes (if you can find one that does gluten-free food).  Because thsese "stool tests" are not medically accepted, it is unlikely that a real medical facility will consider you to have Celiac.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Why would your doctor order an endoscopy and check for celiac disease, but not order a celiac panel?  Had you been gluten free already?  
    • Thanks cyclinglady ... just wondering, do most of the people on this forum believe the Enterolab stool / gene testing to be non-trustworthy? Or are you just recommending a diagnosis from my MD so that she is also treating me with full belief/knowledge of my condition? I've been gluten free now for 2 weeks - by the time I get in to my doctor, she orders the bloodwork and I get to a lab it could be another 2 weeks before the bloodwork is done. From what I understand, just a month of gluten free eating could skew the results of the blood test. Supposedly, the stool tests are much more accurate. I hate to go backwards and start eating gluten again just so I can have a blood test done that may or may not substantiate the results of the stool / gene testing. I'm so confused ...
