Hey there all,

I am a 22 year old celiac law student completing a business subject (marketing) as a non-law elective in my course of studies at QUT (Queensland University of Technology) in Brisbane, Australia. In this subject, our major assignment is to bring up a marketing plan for a product. The best marketing plan gets to present the product to industry professionals and potentially have the opportunity to take it further.

For my group's assignment we have decided to come up with a food product tailored for celiacs. Being a celiac, I have noticed several things that I miss and a lot of things that I would like to eat.

I am wondering if you would be able to help me with my assignment by shouting out about what food products that you would possibly like to see on the market. I know a big one for me was beer and now there are a couple of companies that provide this.

Any help would be very appreciated! :D

Thanks again :)

I would like to see gluten free biscuits and crescents in a can. Gluten free twizzler and gluten free cakes and pies in the bakery sections of grocery stores. Or at least the ability to special order cakes or pies from regular grocery stores.

When I am exhausted and hungy, I would just LOVE to be able to hit a drive-thru now and then, and something other than Wendy's chili....

Also gluten-free fluffy, melting donuts, like Krispy Kreme....gluten-free crusty, heavy sourdough bread.... *sniff* :(

Here lately, I've been having a re-accuring dream that I'm on vacation and I stumble into some magical gluten-free world where there are gluten-free restaraunts and grocery stores. I had one dream a few weeks ago about the grocery store....and there was gluten-free pita bread, focaccia, baklava, angel food cake....and all the the other goodies. The whole store was gluten-free! The funny part about the dream though (and I swear I'm not making this up!) was when I got to the checkout with all my gluten-free stuff and my cart-full cost $4,000! :lol::lol:

Then a couple nights ago I had one about a restaurant. It was nothing special as restaurants go...just a walk-up and take out kind of place. I was walking by and I saw on their menu outside that it was run by some of the members on this board :P I ran inside, and it was all Italian carry out food. Pasta dishes, pizzas, ravioli..mmmmmm Sure beats my dreams about eating half a piece of pizza before thinking about what I'm doing! :rolleyes:

How about something cheesy - like cream cheese, or mozzerella... something gluten-free, casein free, lactose free and soy free?

Yes! Gluten free, dairy free rice cheese. (WHY do they put dairy in a rice cheese? ) AND cereal that you can buy without malt flavoring in the regular grocery aisles.

A company like Chef Boy-R-Dee (but Gluten Free) -- Think of the possibilities...

Also, gluten-free TV Dinners and MORE gluten-free Soup that tastes good.

In my opinion, the restaurant thing can be solved via personal education --- if you want to learn about the inner workings of restaurants and dine successfully in them, you need to learn about how food is prepared and always get a manager to help you. (I haven't been glutened in a restaurant in a very long time...)

MAKE THEM PREPARE THINGS IN A SEPARATE PAN

MAKE THEM USE NEW GLOVES AT FAST FOOD PLACES

ASSERT YOURSELF, DON'T POISON YOURSELF

Restaurants are in business due to guest relations and hospitality -- make them cater to you (Be nice and tip graciously, but don't ever be afraid to assert yourself in those places)

JMO

I have nightmares about eating something with gluten/casein etc. in and then frantically trying to spit it out, rinse my mouth, etc. Very good feeling to wake up and realise it was just a dream!

I would love to see better food labeling in supermarkets. I know that the gluten-free stuff is there in my regular supermarket...just need to know which ones I can have!

Think of the possibilities......

Almost everything that I like is (except my daughter's favorite Chef-Boy-R-Dee)available either by mail-order or at Whole Foods, BUT

IT'S SO BLEEPING EXPENSIVE!!!!!

I would like to be able to make my meals (even from scratch) without paying for it like it's coming from a 4-star resaurant!!!!! :angry:

I would personally like to see 100% gluten free restaurants! I can't eat out anymore because of cross contamination.

I voted for more convenience foods since Amy's is the only one that I can buy here and a lot of people seem to react to their products. I haven't had Amy's in a long time because I don't want to get sick!

Being vegetarian and gluten free, I would love to see gluten free pasta, at say Olive Garden. So I could take my son there. Also like someone said, more education for restaurants, so they understand celiac.

Also I would love to go to any restaurant. Like Panera bread and get gluten free bread there. I know it is a dream world, but it would be wonderful to eat something other then a baked potatoe. THe social aspect for me with celiac is the worst. Luckily we have a PF chang's down the road. I hate being the one that is "picky". Most of the time I eat at home.

Like someone said, I would die for a sub or a bean burrito with regular flour tortilla.

It has gotten better mourning over these things after a year.

There isn't enough of anything anywhere. Most of all we want it to taste good. More of everything especially education on the subject so that others know what this is and how we suffer. More education for doctors on this also.

Better understanding on the part of more food manufacturers so there would be less CC worries. I'm ok with my limited food choices--not much I can do about that--but the CC will get me altogether too often with products and eating out. :blink: I think I used too many words there :D
