AQA Food Tec Biscuits Question

Showing 1 to 7 of 7

has anyone else just got the Specification from the first question of the Exam, it goes something like design and make a savoury or sweet biscuit to suit someone with special dietry needs. I was just wondering if anyone had any tips about what to do or any specific biscuits that would be suitable.

think about like dietary need.. diabetes ??? so maybe low in sugar those who are watching the weight..

ok thanks for that i dont think flapjacks count as i did ask my teacher but i suppose if you put some dried fruit in them they could be counted as high fibre

we've been told the best ones would be to do shortbread, and make them suitable for coeliacs.

another one would be to make normal biscuits and decorate them differently and do them for diabetics or for lactose intolerant.

you can do quite a bit with this topic though...

Hi There!

Dietary requirements that you could consider include:

Low fat diet


Gluten Free(Coeliac)


Lactose Intolerant

So you could pick from any of those above, then you would need to specify what could be done, so for example  lot of biscuits contain eggs and egg is quite a common allergy now a days so you could make one without eggs, then here re some other ideas for the other dietry requirements; you could also use gluten free flour, reduced sugar content, no nuts, sugar substitute etc.

Hope this helps :)
