Son is allergic to dairy eggs and nuts. He is going to a local secondary school for a taster day and is going to be making flapjacks.
I spoke to the school and it was decided that they would all use stork marg for the cooking... its what MIL uses in his cakes...

anyway while I was checking it out in Tesco's earlier I realised there is two types of Stork... stork pasty in foil and stork in a tub, one of them said it contained buttermilk shock..... is this right.. does one contain dairy....

Yes, the tub one contains buttermilk - this is what I use for baking cakes and scones.

I have never used the other one, but on my tub in the fridge it says the other one is best used for making pastry and shallow frying but does not say what it contains.

I don't think it is dairy free - but not absolutely sure.

I use 'Pure' which you can get at Tesco or Sainsburys in either a soya or sunflower version. It is definitely vegan, so dairy free and is fine for baking with.

found this online...

On the bottom of the tub we have the ingredients which are vegetable oils, salt, buttermilk, emulsifier, flavourings, vitamin E, citric acid, preservative, colour and vitamins A and D.

Pure is a margarine btw. You can find it in the chiller cabinet with all the other marg.

Soz - have just read the thread properly - I thought you needed a dairy free alternative to Stork. Will the school let your ds take a tub of Pure in to do his baking with?

chilledmama Sun 15-Jun-08 22:03:37

no problemo...what else is a girl going to do when she should be packing for holidays!!!grin

MumRum Sun 15-Jun-08 22:10:25

Winetimeisfinetime... I'm sure they won't mind at all, only the teacher said she would provide it and I messed up...

chilledmama... have a good time smile

stork block margarine is dairy free and nut free and can be used in cakes and pastries and biscuits too. contains no buttermilk. Block margarines are hard because they contain no butter milk.

I have just googled in 2018 and this has came up as a result- so any additional information is still useful
