A major company famous for its dairy-based creams has launched two vegan cream alternatives, according to Vegan Food UK.

Vegan Food UK is an online organization sharing vegan food news, reviews, vlogs, and more. It operates across multiple social media platforms, with a Facebook group, Facebook page, YouTube channel, and Instagram account.

The organization has revealed that Elmlea – which has offered a ‘cream alternative’ made from buttermilk and vegetable oils for years – has now created single and double cream options without any animal products, called Elmlea PLANT.

‘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’.
