    Question Is Mayo Primal?

    I see that there is mayo in some recipes, but is it considered primal? Also, being made with canola oil, wouldn't it be high in Omega-6?

    Yes it would have a significant amount of undesirable omega 6 and what's worse it will be oxidized and cause heaps of free radical damage on the way in. It's also likely to be GMO, although the implications of that I can't say for sure.

    I say make your own with virgin olive oil. Yummy!

    Thanks, Stabby! I've been thinking about trying that, especially after watching Meryl Streep do it in "Julie and Julia".

    Stabby, as long as I have your attention, I am new, and my status is "member". I see others who seem new, and they are "junior members". And then there are "senior members". How does this happen? Is it based on when you join?

    Primal or not, I will give up my mayo when they pry it from my cold dead fingers. Food of the gods, I tell ya!

    Most message boards upgrade "rank" by number of posts and I suspect that this one is no different. Looks like you've done a good deal of posting so that's my bet.

    +1 on making your own mayo.
    It's so easy... 1 egg yolk, whisk in a bowl, add EVOO a drop at a time while whisking, until it looks...like mayo. Add lemon juice, dash mustard and salt to taste. Don't buy the crap in the supermarket

    I make mayo much as described above--but a warning. Get LIGHT EVOO; it makes a difference. Regular EVOO will make a really bitter mayo, but the LIGHT version is delicious.
