any idea if they sell filo pastry? thanks

No idea, sorry

I didn't see any filo pastry whilst I was shopping there today! But the flaky pastry is an absolute bargain! Great for mince pies/freezing!

Do they do an all butter one, rather than the usual "Vegetable Oil and Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil" (Jus Rol)?

I've tried the Filo Pastry from Jus-Rol and its great! I would recommend using that. Also know Jus-Rol do an all butter pastry if that's what you're looking for.

The Jus-Rol all butter pastries are good - a lot nicer than the others, made from rather unpleasant substances.

The one that really takes the biscuit is Anchor, which has the highly misleading description on the label: 'Made with Anchor Butter'.

Ingredients:


Wheat Flour,
Margarine (Vegetable Oil, Water, Salt),
Vegetable Fats,
Water,
Unsalted Butter (10% (Milk fat content minimum 80%),
Salt,
Preservative (Potassium Sorbate).


So just 10% butter, and mainly margarine and vegetable fats (quite possibly palm oil) - Anchor, now there's a company not to trust!

I try to avoid palm oil for all sorts of reasons. Health being just one. It might be even worse for us than trans fats. I didn't know palm oil could be passed off/disguised as vegetable fats? I thought it had to be listed separately.

I think many people feel the same way about palm oil. It's not something many of us want to eat if we can avoid it, but manufacturers hide it under the 'vegetable oil' label. Another of the positive benefits of UK membership of the EU (so hated by the popular press) is that the law will change later this year, though:

A new EU law on the provision of food information to consumers was adopted by the Council of the European Union on 29 September 2011. Under the new legislation, which applies to all member states of the European Union, the types of vegetable oil used in food products must be stated explicitly on the label. This means that manufacturers will no longer be able to hide palm oil in their ingredients under the generic term ‘vegetable oil’. This law will come into effect on 13 December 2014.
