Dairy free double cream

Hello smile
I cant have dairy products & need a vegetarian double cream
i have heard of 1 called Soja-Saane which i believe whips up quite thick but not sure where to buy it?

Most dairy free creams i find are just single & they don`t whip at all no matter how hard you try sad

can anyone suggest a name of a dairy free double cream on the market

I`m lactose intolerant you name it i`m it
cant have gluten, wheat either.

Thanks all for any help smile
ps i live in London UK

Jamies, can you tolerate yew's milk/cream?  You can whip that up into something acceptable.  I bought some once and made it thick for a dairy-free friend and it worked well.

Definitely not me duplicating the posts.  Took too much care on the last one and hey presto - you get it twice.  Sorry.
This is by way of a test so apologies in advance.

I'm only getting one of your posts, Thistledo. Or, have you been deleting the duplicates since you discovered the problem?

Re: Dairy free double cream

Soja-saane is about the only one I know of that's vegetarian and "double" in consistency - but it really doesn't taste very nice at all.  I have in the past used Lacto-Free's  cream, which will whip if you thicken it with gelatine, but that's then not vegetarian - although you could try agar-agar? 

Alternatively, if you have 3 days to spare (and you're lactose intolerant not casein intolerant!) you could put 4 tbspns buttermilk and 1 litre double cream into a yoghurt maker, ferment for 36 hours, chill for 12 hours, then use as a whipped fermented cream (the fermentation digests the lactose, you see), and turn anything left over into a fermented butter in a food processor.

Maree, no I didn't delete.  Wanted to see what happened.  However, I think it's righted itself now.

It wasn't me, honest Guv!
