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

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...

    • Magnesium, B-vitamins, Vitamin D etc. Should probably be supplemented. For the fog, stress, brain issues I swear by my regime of Liquid Health Stress & Energy, and Liquid Health Neurlogical support 1tbsp each 3 times a day in a beverage before a meal. Works wonders, magnesium is also wonderful, you did not mention constipation or D so I do not know which is best for you. There is Doctors best and Natural Vitality, Doctors best works great for relaxing and is easy on the gut but Natural Vitality is easier absorbed but can be harsh on the gut, it also is great for constipation. Doctors you dose as it tells you, Natural Vitality, you start off at 1/4 tsp and up it slowly to full dose over 1-2 weeks.
      Liquid Health also makes Vitamin D3 in a sublingual form. ALL of these can be found on Luckyvitamin.com and on Amazon.
      These will help with you fog, and anxiety.
    • Our 6 year olds Iga test came back over >100 last May. We had him tested because he was thin, had dropped down in his weight charts and was losing his hair! He was also suffering from miscellaneous aches and pains. We immediately eliminated gluten and with only a few screw ups, 6 months later his level was 4! The doctor is astonished at how rapidly it decreased, and is questioning whether he has celiac or not. (has not had a biopsy, as they are so invasive and the testing is so accurate these days.) His hair is thicker and he has gone up in weight 5%, and doesn't complain as much about leg pains or aches.  Has anyone else's child recovered this fast? Could something else be going on? His thyroid tests are normal, so the plan for now is to keep doing what we are doing and re-test both Iga and thyroid in the spring.  thanks for any help!!  
    • I too have a servere but  Of D. Lasting over 2 weeks I will try to find thisproduct. Like you nothing works. I am trying FiberCon says only take for 9 days. Feeling somewhat  better. Thank you for your info.ism welling  to try anything..
    • Soft blended, soups, porridge, Personally I had to avoid the follow for my last gluten attack Spices (made it burn),  any carbs, sugars even in trace amounts caused gas, We normally suggest removing dairy and oats also as they become problematic during healing. Simple soft cooked egg dishes (coconut/almond meal quiche and microwaved omelettes), nut meal porridge sit best for me. Many swear by peppermint and camomilla tea, and peptobismal but neither of those work for me personally, other swear by Imodium for the D.

      There is a product out there that is supposed to lessen the symptoms of a exposure called GlidainX that helps to break down some of the gluten in the intestines so it is not as bad but you have to take it right after realizing the issue. Not tried it personally but after my last exposure and the following 4 weeks of random bouts of D I had I would have tried anything lol. MY D did no stop til my antibodies went back down and my exposure was a low and slow exposure to a CCed food staple....
       
    • Hi lex, I haven't tested anything with NIMA myself, since I don't have one.   I did find some honey sites that claim they have gluten-free honey.  This is just a couple I found in a quick search.  It seems to me honey is made from nectar of flowers.  The nectar is a precursor to the seed.  So the seed isn't formed until the flower is fertilized.  Then gluten is formed as the seed matures.  So normally I think there is little chance of honey having gluten in it because the nectar and gluten are not present at the same time in the plants. I don't think it's impossible for honey to somehow get some gluten in it.  Honey from china has been adulterated with other things already.  Generally high fructose corn syrup.  But who know what else they put in it? I think's its safer to buy local honey where you know the farmer than imported brands IMHO. If there were a large flour mill in the area where the honey was being harvested I'd be a little wary of it myself.  At least for honey produced during the harvest season. http://www.barkmanhoney.com/faqs/does-honey-contain-gluten/ http://www.capilanohoney.com/au-en/faq/is-your-honey-gluten-free Is your honey gluten free?       Honey is naturally free of gluten. It does not contain wheat or its by-products. Our honey is 100% pure and natural, nothing has been added to it, therefore it is 100% gluten free. In addition to this, no gluten containing products are handled or stored in our packing facilities.
