    Thanks for that Risker - noticed this:

    If you are a vegan, or trying to avoid some animal products from choice or because you have been advised to do so for medical reasons,

    so - someone remind me - why do you never see - - - if you are trying to avoid PLANT products from your diet for medical reasons.....

    Thank you Risker - quite an impressive list though it has made me feel anxious about the possibility of things like tinned tomatoes and plain almonds that aren't vegan

    It's extremely rare to see a Tesco procuct marked as vegan. I've only seen the mince with it on, which I can't even have because it's got garlic in it!

    I find Tesco the best supermarket to shop in for what I usually eat and cook, price and variety wise. Trouble is my nearest one's quite a drive away, and I try to economise my car trips so I usually wait until I am going that way for some other reason, to visit it.
    The greatest mistake is to do nothing because you can only do a little.

    The problem you're having sounds like you need to download Adobe Acrobat though poppy. Although this link should work as I don't think it requires it.

    Until recently the nearest Tesco was 60 miles from here. Last year one was built 30 miles away , so we thought we'd give it a try yesterday. Lovely store - brand spanking new, roomy, bright, well stocked, polite and helpful staff. I searched the store for tofu, to no avail. Asked three members of staff and got that wide-eyed 'I don't know what you're talking about but I'll fetch someone' look. Eventually, behind a pillar, we found said item, together with a few vegetarian odds and ends. Tried the same with cheese substitutes - no luck at all there. 'I would have to go to one of their bigger stores.' 'Bigger than this?' I asked. This store seemed huge to me. Ditto with convenience foods; we do most of our own food preparation, but it's handy to have some prepared food around. Nothing. A very frustrating day.

    The nearest Holland & Barratt is also 60 miles away, so it looks like I shall have to rely on the two small 'health food' shops in town that are obviously operating some sort of price-fixing cartel.

    GreyOwl - Have you tired making your own tofu from soya milk? It's ridiculously easy, and you don't need to buy anything special if you don't want to.

    I have a tofu press, but I have made it many times in a colander lined with a bit of cheesecloth or muslin.

    I use Tesco value soya milk and epson salts which I buy from Tesco pharmacy

    Directions
    Place one carton of soya milk in a pan
    Bring soya milk to just below boil, keep it at a very low simmer
    Boil a kettle with about a cupful of water in it
    Pour some boiling water into a mug
    Add 1 tsp of Epson Salts to the water, stir until dissolved
    Turn heat off of soya milk and stir, gently pouring in the water and epsom salts. It will go all clumpy with white clouds of tofu hanging in yellowy water
    Allow to stand for 15-20 mins
    Pour into muslin lined sieve, colander or tofu press
    Put some weight on top, leave overnight

    This whole process takes about 5 mins in the kitchen, and the rest is just waiting.

    I think I get about 200g out of a 59p carton of soya milk, much cheaper than buying cauldron foods tofu, and I prefer mine

    Sure you can read really complex instructions invoking thermometers and so on on the web, but frankly I'm a bit too lazy for that and mine always comes out fine

    If you order from Goodness Direct make sure you tell them not to send you non-vegan products, they thought we might like some free goats cheese and milky biscuits.

    Oh, and use code SO100561 when ordering

    Thanks - will bear that in mind. My problem with postal stuff is that I live in the middle of nowhere; the postman won't come up my track so I have a box 1/3 mile away. I'll be having to make the box bigger.

    And thank you too. This forum is fantastic - I am learning so much. I have a dried flower press - I would not be forgiven for using that. And my last wine making accident required a complete redecoration of the dining room ..... but I'll give it a go.

    I'm a little concerned that my local Tesco appears to have stopped selling plain tofu - none in stock, and no empty space where it should be either...

    I have found that my local health food shops are better than Holland and Barrett - both sell Cheezly - a wider variety than H&B and cheaper as well.

    Sounds easy to make - I like tofu but I'm not too fond of the new Cauldron plan tofu - the texture isn't the same as it used to be.

    Where did you buy your tofu press?

  24. #474

    Default Re: Tesco

    I got the tofu press on e-bay, but it you wanted to try home made tofu without buying a press, a colander will work, you'll just need to wrap the muslin over the top of the draining tofu and add some weight. It'll make a thinner, round tofu cake rather than a block, which if you are going to cube your tofu up for your recipe really won't make a difference.

    I also agree about the cauldron foods stuff. I really don't like it these days. It's also much more expensive and shipped over from America in plastic pots. This is not my idea of a good thing.

    Tesco are selling their raspberry and their lemon sorbet 2 tubs for 3. They are amongst the very few things Tesco actually mark as vegan, and very nice too, especially the raspberry flavour.

    Thanks for advice. I'll have to experiment and have a go - just need to buy some muslin now. I have a flat oblong shaped colander that fits in my second sink, so that would probably work well, and the tofu would be flat as well!

    I'll let you know how I get on - be patient, it probably won't be for a few weeks though!

    Interesting that they say "This list does not include fresh fruit and vegetables because they are not processed and are generally suitable for vegans." [my emphasis-lv]

    Mmm. It's not unknown for fruit such as oranges and apples to have a non-vegan coating.

    We live next door to a huge Tesco Extra, so obviously do our weekly shop there. The vegetarian section is very good in there; masses of choice in the freezers. Unfortuunately most of the vegetarian section is not vegan. There are some tidy own brand curry bakes though. Well worth a try if youo haven't already.

Today they had run out of olive so I had to try the walnut one and I'm glad I did. Had it with yeast extract, nomm and now the whole loaf is gone!

    They are labelled as suitable for vegans except for the wholemeal (honey).

    I took a trip to Tesco today. Apart from being a soul-destroying experience they didn't have any of this bread. I'm guessing that it isn't available in all areas.

    They aren't. I emailed them ages ago. They contain skimmed milk in the coating despite the ingredients not saying so. When I questioned them further they clammed up.

    Oh shit I was really looking forward to them. They also make one in batter as well, do you think its possible they made a mistake and were talking about those?
    Oh well I didn't buy them anyway, I will wait and see what they say, if it turns out they do contain milk (when both their packaging and Tesco's website states they are milk free) I will get in touch with the FSA.

    They said both of their bakes contain milk. Here is their email:

    Dear Glen Lambert Thank you for your email I am sorry to have to tell you that neither bakes are suitable for Vegans as they both have skimmed milk in the coating. We are constantly reviewing our products and seeing how we can improve them. I will put this point forward at our next production meeting. Many thanks Jackie Harrison Office Supervisor Lockwoods Ltd * Tel: 01773 857435 * Fax: 01773 857467 * Mob: 07824 893252 * Email: jackie@lockwoodgrp.co.uk

    Thanks your a star.
    I will keep my fingers crossed they have changed the recipe but I'm not very optimistic about it.

    Maybe more of us should get in touch. If they see enough of a demand for the product to become vegan, there is more of a chance something will be done about it. Supply and demand, and all that

    All their burgers, sausages and new products all have egg!! drives me mad.. I don't like bean burgers (much)! I am sure they could make their new veggie range with out eggs if they wanted, I blame Quorn for all of this.

    It is very depressing to walk around Tesco, checking labels only to find that unnecessary animal products are in there

    On the plus side, I just got back and they are now selling fresh Oatly along side soya milk in the fridges, and its on offer at the moment (30 pence off).

    It is annoying. I live next door to a huge Tesco Extra with a very large vegetarian section. Unfortunately very few of the items are suitable. It's a brilliant range for veggies, but they're missing out on a big market by adding eggs into everything.
