    Thoughts on this commercial mayo?

    Primal Fuel
    I've tried making mayo myself. It's always been a dismal fail. I don't use it a ton, but my kids do eat things like egg salad and tuna salad. I found this commercial mayo. What are your thoughts? Still horrible? Or okay on occasion?

    Ingredients: Expeller-Pressed High-Oleic Safflower Oil, Filtered Water, Brown Rice Syrup, Apple Cider Vinegar, Pea Protein, Sea Salt, Mustard Flour, Lemon Juice Concentrate

    PUF: 1 gram
    MUF: 7 grams

    Should be fine, though where are the eggs?

    It's actually Vegenaise. Weird, right? No eggs. Not sure how they make the stuff, which has me a little concerned. I'm guessing "pea protein" is the substitute for eggs.

    Makes my stomach turn. Can't you sub sour cream or yogurt?

    I can't believe I'm posting a Dr. Oz link, and definitely minus the stevia, but this isn't bad.

    I've been using high-oleic sunflower oil (from Trader Joe's for those who have it available) to make my own mayo and it works well. Mark seems to think it's ok as long as it's cold-pressed:

    The only thing that looks kinda weird to me is the pea protein, but I guess it's not the worst (at least it's not soy protein; that would be a definite "avoid").

    This method using an immersion/stick blender works very well for me:

    I tried that stuff exactly once, probably not too dangerous but it has zero flavor. If you're okay with sour cream, it can be thinned to the desired consistency with lemon or vinegar for just about every purpose.

    Mayonnaise is very easy to make when using immersion blender. You don't even have to worry about adding the oil gradually and super slowly. I no longer eat mayo, but I used to make it sometimes using that method. Never got a failed batch.

    I use the vegannaise sometimes. Tastes pretty good, actually. I don't think it'll kill you. It's just a condiment.

    What I've wondered is why can't you just toss a couple egg yolks and some olive oil in your tuna salad and just mix it all up.

    High oleic is better than not but... There's always 20%, and it's not canola or soy at least. Is it good for you? Probably not. Do the kids dislike the homemade stuff too? I have hated mayo for 24 years but just the other week made a descent mayo after three failures (I use it for hot smoked salmon pate). Maybe you just need to try a different recipe?

    I still prefer strained yogurt to mayo 99% of the time.
