Suet is used in traditional boiled, steamed, or baked savoury and sweet puddings, such as steak and kidney pudding, spotted dick and jam roly-poly. It is also used to make soft-textured pastry, dumplings, haggis, mincemeat, Christmas pudding, and a rendered fat called tallow.

Atora The Original Beef Shredded Suet is the original suet used for generations. What makes it taste so great is the real beef fats used to create the rich and authentic flavour for delicious results every time. You can now enjoy lighter, fluffy dumplings, pastries, puddings, and pies.

First introduced in 1893, Atora continues to be made to the highest standards using only the finest ingredients

There is now a vegetarian alternative to beef suet: Atora Vegetable Shredded Suet is made from vegetable fats such as sunflower oil and palm oils, which are then incorporated with wheat flour or rice flour. It can be used in the same way as the Original Beef Suet. You can now enjoy vegetarian fluffy dumplings, pastries, puddings, and pies which tastes every bit as good.
