This is just as good as the more advertised Vegeta

5 stars

This is just as good as the more advertised Vegetable suet and also if you do need a Gluten free diet in any recipe you do need to use all Gluten free ingredients for it to remain so. Great stuff at a much better price but i feel still expensive for what it is. Love a nice warming Stew and Dumplings i always make a big pot of it and none of us mind having it for two days for our evening meal : )

Better than non vegetarian

5 stars

This is at least as good as non vegetarian suet and think the dumplings I made were even lighter and fluffier.

Tesco please remove the palm oil

1 stars

I was going to use till I saw Palm oil, with all the controversy about palm oil, it should be substituted with something else.

Used to be great, being vegan and gluten-free too

2 stars

Used to be great, being vegan and gluten-free too was wonderful. Then you added palm oil, and the taste and texture changed. No more firm, fluffy dumplings, now they're gluey, stodgy lumps. So sad, this was a favourite of mine, now I'll have to hunt out an alternative.


4 stars

Great GLUTEN FREE Suet. I know someone has stated that its not gluten free as you need to add self raising flour to make dumplings/suet puddings etc. I have Coeliacs and use this. I use GLUTEN FREE Self raising flour to make my items. The product itself is gluten free but you must make sure the additional ingredient you add are also.

Confused with ingredients

3 stars

I am coeliac, therefore cannot eat gluten. I bought Tesco Vegetable suet having read somewhere it was gluten free. The packet I have (Best Before End Aug 2019) appears to be exactly the same as shown here, but the ingredients are totally different. On my packet the ingredients are shown as - Palm oil, Rice flour, Sunflower oil. This would indicate no gluten. The recipe for dumplings shows self raising flour which contains gluten, therefore making the dumpling unsuitable for coeliacs. I would of course use gluten free flour. BUT there is always that doubt. I would only use this packet of suet for myself if it was marked as GLUTEN FREE. It is fine for non-coeliacs. Perhaps someone from Tesco could forward this information to your dietary experts. I will check in due course to see if this suet has been labelled as GLUTEN FREE.

New version - 3 x calorie & fat content

1 stars

This is a new version, it was not shown as new & there has been nothing to say Tesco were changing their vegetable suet! The old version of this contains far less calories & fat content to this newer version, so much so the new version has more than 3 times the calorie & fat content to their older & dare I say better vegetable suet!! I, for one will not be buying it!

Don't buy this

1 stars

I always used beef suet before my sons went vegan and I blamed the fact that my dumplings weren't rising anymore on the difference between vegetable suet and "the real thing". Then I read the ingredients list and saw how much more flour the Tesco vegetable suet has than Atora. Presumably they are trying to make it look lower calorie - but it's FAT! You wouldn't try and make butter lower calorie by putting flour in it so why this? It changes the ratio of fat to flour and makes your recipe wrong. I normally like Tesco own brands, but this is a waste of money.
