Great for cooking

I use Elmlea regularly for making creamy sauces for pasta or in other savoury dishes. I think it works very well for this as the flavour and texture are really very good and it saves on fat and calories. Also, it doesn't split when heated. I don't tend to use it on its own, for example over fruit, as the flavour is not quite the same as real cream. But my family do use it that way and really like it.

This 'Elmlea' is NOT cream!

Beware! I bought this stuff once and had to throw it out. It is modified vegetable oil, not cream, and should not be described as such. It is cream substitute.

Misleading packaging

It's not cream and shouldn't be listed in the Cream section!


Garlic Chicken

Garlic Chicken

This simple dish uses the strong flavours of the Balti paste - such as cumin, coriander and other authentic spices, with garlic. The result being a tantalising dish that is easy enough to rustle up for a quick weekday meal.
