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 :)

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...

    • Feeneyja, This will be a little long but I will  try to be brief as possible. See this discussion thread that talks about how Pellagra is often diagnosed as other disease's today because doctor's rarely recognize it today in a clinical setting. Pellagra's is described as the 3 D's if you don't count the 4th D of death if it goes long enough and is not diagnosed in a timely manner. Dementia (Neurological) Digestive (GI problems), Dermatitis issues (Ezcema, Psorsias, Acne etc.) According to mdguidelines website http://www.mdguidelines.com/pellagra indicates that quoting “The diagnosis of pellagra is straightforward when the classic rash is present but may be elusive if there are only gastrointestinal and/or neurological manifestations.” And why I believe in many cases Pellagra goes undiagnosed today.  Because doctor's have forgotten how it presents. A longer researcher article about the neurological presentations of pellagra mention the many ways a Niacin deficiency can present itself. Here is the link https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ and I will quote some of the neurological/dementia related symptom's of an undiagnosed pellagra patient. "Mental symptoms were wider than dementia, in that depression, fatigue, psychomotor retardation, mania, obsessions, and a whole range of psychoses with auditory and visual hallucinations were well described, along with personality change and sociopathic and drug and alcohol addictive behaviours. Panic disorders were seen as was a general inability to deal with physical or mental stress. Poor brain development such as hydrocephalus or cerebral palsy was also common. Acute delirium or even coma occurred, with some patients having myoclonus and other extrapyramidal signs reminiscent of the spongiform encephalopathies. The dementias of pellagra included features akin to Lewy body, Alzheimer’s, frontotemporal, vascular, and prion diseases. Parkinsonism was also common and a festinant gait was first described in pellagrins. Tremors of various descriptions, including asymmetric rest tremors, were noted and some patients had typical paralysis agitans. Pellagrins had a characteristic expressionless facies, so some signs of parkinsonism were present in most cases. Many features of pellagra closely resemble the nonmotor aspects of PD. The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." It is me again. You can see the neurological symptom's of Pellagra are severe and wide ranging. Taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can alleviate many of these symptom's if your daughter has subclinical pellagra and the doctor's don't know to look for it. I had deep depression for many, many years and I shudder to think now that only a Vitamin could of helped me 30+ years ago and the doctor's didn't know to look for it. Shoot it isn't just Niacin.  All B-Vitamin's help your stress levels.  IF you have stress B-Vitamins can help your stress levels. I take Folic Acid for Blood pressure problems and it keeps my BP with in a normal range. A article on celac.com discussed this topic in detail a few months ago. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html I hope it is helpful.  Good luck on your continued journey. If you have never heard of Pellagra you are not alone. Dr. Heaney discusses why this is so in his online article Pellagra and the 4 D's. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ If you don't have time to read the whole hindawi article I also suggest this shorter but informative blog about why a Niacin deficiency can cause dementia related conditions. https://pellagradisease.wordpress.com/ Then decide for yourself and your daughter's sake to decide whether to take Niacinamide or not to see if it helps the D's symptom's she is experiencing (Digestive, Dementia etc.) The International Journal of Celiac Disease makes note of this in their research that Pellagra could be contributing to symptom's being diagnosed as Celiac disease today instead of a possible (co-morbid) Pellagra that causes the same symptom's. When they discuss how Pellagra and Celiac disease are related (Co-Morbid) in a Celiac diagnosis are surprised to find that in 58% of Celiac's -- can also be diagnosed with Pellagra. See this link http://pubs.sciepub.com/ijcd/3/1/6/ Quoting 3. Pellagra and celiac disease "The two diseases can be connected in two aspects. 58% of pellagra patients were shown to have malabsorption and many had intestinal pathology on biopsies [36, 37]. Alternatively, Pellagra was described in celiac disease [38]. The skin manifestations in pellagra might have some additional etiologies, since multiple nutrient deficiencies are at the origin of the cutaneous manifestations in celiac disease. The following nutritional deficiencies inducing skin rashes, were describe in celiac disease: Zinc, Iron, Vitamin A, E, B12, niacin, folate, selenium and essential fatty acids [39, 40]." If one is being diagnosed incorrectly the other co-morbid conditions can continue to cause Celiac like symptom's. But if the majority of those who have been diagnosed as Celiac could be helped by taking Niacinamide I see no you reason you shouldn't try it. Or at least research it some more. Again good luck on your continued journey. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. Posterboy by the grace of God,

    • Color me confused.  I went to Costco yesterday and there were 2 products there that had GLUTEN FREE plastered on the box but then in the ingredients was a: May contain wheat. How is this possible?  How can they still put gluten-free on the box?  We should be able to trust gluten-free labeling no?? And second question:  How many of you would still buy that item?  I REALLY wanted to buy the Island Way Sorbet for my daughter as it is her FAVE.  But I didn't want to take the risk.  Maybe when she is healthier?  I mean it is SORBET?! LOL So frustrating!
    • JMG I have never laughed so hard! This was the best epic comment I've read! Thankyou so much!  Your all teaching me so much! Love the 'my glass to go' idea!! I will be adopting this... can't believe the mucky glasses we must be drinking from! Shocking!  Im still baffled how so many people don't understand cross contamination i.e. The crumbs on the work surface to cut the lime for your tasty beverage!  Your all amazing Thankyou x
    • Yes!  I never really had GI symptoms, but I did have palpitations and restless leg syndrome from anemia.  These went away within the first month. But myalgia and joint aches aren't better after 1 year.  Waiting to get my antibodies re-tested and see if they're negative.....
