Default White gloss that doesn't yellow

I will soon be doing a complete redecoration of a 3 storey house and need to buy ALOT of paint.

Therefore, to save some money, i'm happy to buy a shops own brand of paint rather than the big name brands BUT I don't want to waste my money if the paint is rubbish. I repainted my kitchen 12 months ago and the white gloss is already a disgusting yellow colour.

Can anyone recommend a white gloss that DOESN'T yellow?

Don't use gloss. Use satinwood as this doesn't yellow at all. It also has a duller finish than gloss and doesn't shop all the imperfections in the woodwork.
Eat vegetables and fear no creditors, rather than eat duck and hide.

When we moved in 5 years ago we did pretty much everywhere(doors and archatrave, sp? and skirts) in dulux once white gloss. None of ours has gone yellow. We dont smoke though, I know that affected my mum and dads majorly.

solvent based paints yellow - gloss or satinwood fade with age, where as water based paints stay white, i can recommend dulux diamond satinwood , although it is quite pricey.also being w/based it dries quickly and doesn't smell as much as a solvent based paint

I have never had white gloss go yellow. Brolac when it was a good paint was fine and Leyland/Johnstone since.

The best white wood paint I have found is Dulux Quick Dry Satinwood. It dries in 2 hours instead of 16 hours, doesn't smell half as much as gloss and doesn't yellow
