Default A level food technology coursework

Hi,

I am an A level food technology student, and for my food technology coursework I have decided to investigate the use of artificial sweeteners in no added sugar/diabetic sweet products. I would be very grateful if you could take a few minutes to answer my questions.
1) What is your age?
0-20
21-42
43-64
65+

2) Are you male or female?

3) what type of diabetes do you have?

4) What sweet products are your favourite?
Pastries
Desserts
Cakes
Biscuits
Other

5) Do you usually buy no added sugar/diabetic sweet products?

6) Are you aware of the side effects of artificial sweeteners?

7) Currently there are very few naturally sweet, no added sugar products on the market. If there was a wider range of such products would you consider purchsing them ?

8 )Do you find it hard when purchasing sweet products?

9)Why?

10)What key things make you purchase a product?

11) How much would you be prepared to spend on a no added sugar sweet product ( such as a cake) ?

Under £1
£1-£2
£3-£4
Over £4

Thank you for your time.

I suggest that you talk to your professor about your study design.

Your questions would be appropriate for a market study of product preferences among persons with diabetes, which is an entirely different matter than an investigation of "use of artificial sweeteners in no added sugar/diabetic sweet products."

Such a study would be of the products, not the consumers, and could be conducted by examining product labels. In the course of the study you'd have to define what is meant by an "artificial sweetener" or "no added sugar". For example, corn syrup is not a naturally occurring sweetener. It's manufactured from corn starch. So is it an artificial sweetener, or not? Also, some foods, like strawberry preserves, as defined by the FDA contain sugar as a basic ingredient. Is this "added sugar?"

You could simplify this somewhat by replacing "artificial sweetener" with non-nutritive sweetener".

Good luck with your studies.
