‘Huge news’

“Elmlea has already launched plant-based single and double creams at Asda,” the Vegan Food UK said in an Instagram post.

“This is HUGE NEWS! Elmlea is a big company, let’s hope people buy these up instead of the dairy version.”

Significantly, Elmlea PLANT costs 95p for its single-cream alternative, and £1.10 for the double cream option – the same price its non-vegan versions retail for.

The product is also currently available to buy from Sainsbury’s online, where is it described as a ‘blend of fababean protein and plant oils’, which is ‘totally free from artificial flavours and preservatives’.

The product has a shelf life of up to 15 weeks (unopened). According to Sainsbury’s, Elmlea is ‘committed to sustainable palm oil’.

Allergy sufferers should be aware that the product is labeled as ‘not suitable for milk allergy sufferers as this product is made in an environment or factory that handles dairy products’.
