We make our own mayonaise as a substitute for butter, egg, sunflower/vegetable/ground nut  oil and a little dijon mustard and white wine vinegar, trick is to get all the ingredients to room temperature before blending.



Not exactly the same but once you have made your own, shop bought is never the same, it make a decent jam jar size and keeps in the fridge for a week (if it lasts that long).

Fruit d'Or do a sunflower spread without lactose - info here with  list of ingredients


It would also be worth asking in the bio shops, they usually have a range of products suitable for people with specific intolerances.

Thank you. The thing is they can bring it over with them, with two small children and all the luggage you have to bring with you, i thought if i can get things here it would  make their trip more manageable.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my post. The thing is my grandson cannot have soya either, so it makes it quite difficult to buy a spread without it.
