No longer sunflower spread & contains palm oil
When did Flora stop being a sunflower spread? It can't be all that long ago but the total recipe change has been snuck in. I know it's sustainable palm oil in it but I prefer no palm oil and this didn't use to have any in it and had a majority of sunflower oil - now not.
The company that makes this really has screwed around with the range and caused no end of lost customers and upset amongst those with a dietry need. This tastes pretty good, clearly not butter-like but is acceptable and is now vegan too.
Original Flora never had palm oil in it!
As soon as they started putting palm oil in it, I stopped buying it and went to another brand.
I LOVE the new recipe. I missed flora since becoming lactose intolerant but so happy this is all plant based now. It's so yummy sometimes I eat little bits on its own while I'm waiting for the toaster to pop! Works great in baking too.
Good substitute for butter
I'd always bought butter until I realised that I needed to lose a bit of weight, so tried this instead as part of a calorie controlled diet. Now that my weight is at an acceptable level I still use Flora original because having briefly gone back to butter again felt it was 'heavy' compared to the lightness of Flora. It's also much pleasanter than many of the other spreads. Would definitely recommend.
Was so surprised to find by accident that this is vegan,not heavily advertised on packaging,even after having it on toast,I had to check again as it really does taste great,not sure why they are not ' spreading' the news,Veganism is a great thing not a secret,be proud Flora you have jumped on a very big profitable for you band wagon.
Having used Flora Original for many years I am at
Having used Flora Original for many years I am at a loss to understand why they have changed a winning formula. The taste is different & it no longer spreads easily straight from the fridge.
Awful since the rec I change
The recipe has changed and this is awful! My husband has refused to have it and has nothing but the filling in his sandwiches. I have always had flora but since they have changed to using palm oil need to find something else. Change the recipe back please!!!!!!!
