Earth Balance Mindful Mayo - Is It Good?

9 posts in this topic

I need a dairy free, egg yolk free, soy free mayo. Earth Balance Mindful Mayo fits the bill but I can not get it locally. I called the company & they said they can't send me a sample jar. The only way I can get it is to order from Amazon & that requires I order 6 whole jars at one time which with s&h comes to about $50. I wouldn't mind spending that IF I knew this stuff is decent tasting & doesn't suck.

 

Here's a link to the product:

Soooooo, has anyone used this stuff & what is your opinion of it?

 

Thanks!

It is the only mayo I ever tried and really liked. I have tried other mayos with canola oil and they tasted so bad to me I threw them out. If I didn't have Earth Balance Mindful Mayo I would have to make my own. I keep stocked up on it in the fridge. If you get it make sure it is the one marked Original.

But my goodness!! for the price you have listed. I get it here in New York in ShopRite and pay 3.99 a jar for it.

A very similar tasting product which I also use and like is Follow Your Heart Soy-Free Vegenaise Dressing and Sandwich Spread which I also pay 3.99 a jar for in ShopRite. It is just a tad thinner than the Earth Balance Mindful Mayo. Ingredients are safflower oil, filtered water, brown rice syrup, apple cider vinegar, pea protein, sea salt, mustard flour, lemon juice concentrate. It is also marked egg and gluten free. It is manufactured by Earth Island. The website listing on the jar says www.followyourheart.com

Actually I even like it more than the Earth Balance Mindful Mayo and it has safflower instead of canola oil and sea salt instead of just salt listed as an ingredient.

Thank you so much for your reply!!!!!!!!!!!!! No, I can't get it locally at all. And I've tried a billion online markets. The only place I found is Amazon & that means 6 jars. :( We have a health food store here which has a larger store in another town 45 miles away & even THEY don't carry it. Sigh.

I have looked for Vegenaise also but can't find it locally. I was about to get all excited about it until you said sea salt. I have dh & sea salt has iodine which makes my dh flare so I have to stay away from that. That's why we have to have an eggless mayo; because egg yolks are high iodine. I am sooooo glad you listed the ingredients in it. Now I will know not to bother with it.

I tried & tried several recipes for eggless mayo & they all flopped for me.

 

Once again, thanks for your reply. My hubs & I have missed mayo terribly & there are lots of dishes we could add to our food repertoire if we only had some decent tasting mayo.

Go figure --- now it doesn't even show up on Amazon. But I found a health food store about 100 miles away that supposedly carries it. I will call them tomorrow & see if they do & if they will mail it to me.

By the way, these products are always kept here in the refrigerated section of the store unlike the regular mayo which is kept on the shelf. I sure wish you good luck in finding it...to me it beats trying to make my own.

I do have a recipe for mayo which supposedly makes 1/2 cup but I haven't tried it yet because I found the above products. I will put it here in case it may be helpful to you or someone and they could adjust the ingredients. I am limited in what I can have because of corn and soy intolerance in addition to gluten. I use agave nectar and guar gum because of the corn sensitivity.

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup water

1/2 teaspoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed

1/2 teaspoon white wine vinegar

2 teaspoons white rice flour (or 1/2 teaspoon coconut flour for grain free)

1 teaspoon arrowroot

3/4 teaspoon guar gum

1/2 teaspoon agave nectar

1/4 teaspoon dry mustard

1/2 teaspoon salt

Throw everything in blender and blend until mixture emulsifies and thickens. Store in fridge up to a week.

Thank you again! I may have to try it. I called the health food store & they stated they could not ship/mail it to me as (just as you pointed out) it is shipped to them refrigerated & apparently must be kept that way. So now I know why I can't find any online. Guess that was just a goof that it was on amazon once.

Oh darn. Well maybe it will be become available someday where you are. I am thinking perhaps it is fairly new yet and just not that available. I only noticed it a couple of months ago and before that I just did without having any mayo at all.

If you do try making it and are not sensitive to corn you could use honey instead of the agave nectar and you could use xanthan gum instead of the guar gum. For me guar gum is hard to find in my area but a little natural market fairly nearby has it so when I ever get there I buy several little containers of it.

When I get a chance I am going to try the recipe I put above and fuss with it. I may need it some day. I already had plenty of glutenfree baking flops so what's a few mayo flops to me. I notice both these products use apple cider vinegar which I may use instead but they also each have something called pea protein in them and I don't know what that is.

I am sorry your attempts at trying to make your own have not turned out well. I hated putting a recipe here which I have not tried but since I also went for so long without mayo I figured it was worth a try as I sympathize about your not having any mayo. :)

Wow! How did he ever think that one up?

Sounds right up my alley but I know what the hubs will say (he doesn't like anything). That means the other half of the avacado will be saved for ME for the next day! :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

    • Smoothie King
      I have had one or two and was fine.  I don't have an issue with dairy.  If I remember right, most smoothies are gluten-free.
    • Lower left abdominal, left pelvic & other random pains
      I can not say as I have never gone to one or researched the topic.    I would bet that an acupuncturist would be a better choice.  I found it helpful with pain management for a shoulder injury.  It allowed me to heal faster and to do all the things physical therapy therapist wanted me to do without using drugs.  But, finding the root cause of your pain is more important in the long run.  
    • Teeth And Gum Problems
      At age 32, I was told I had severely receding gums and my dentist thought it was very odd. I had the burning mouth syndrome. I could barely eat anything with salt. Then I grew ill. I started to eat soda crackers and water and even that was causing pain in my stomach. One day my boss said, "maybe you have celiac disease."  I'd never heard of it. I stopped eating gluten and got tested. Of course, my tests came back negative, probably because I had not been eating gluten. My gastroenterologist couldn't figure it out and told me to stop looking at the Internet. Over time and without the gluten my inflamed gums, sore mouth and overall mouth sensitivity disappeared, as did my pain in my stomach, my joints and even my dry eye disease. Years passed and I started eating gluten again, ended up in the hospital with severe asthma. The allergist suggested another round of tests and we found I have celiac disease. Recently, I've been under a lot of stress and reached for my go to comfort food, bread. My gums are so inflamed that they even broke open. How stupid of me. But yes, gum inflammation is definitely a severe side effect of gluten for me. My whole mouth hurts and my teeth are now beyond sensitive. My tongue is getting that burning sensation back too. I'm pretty sure my throat is swollen as it is hard to swallow. I'm not quite sure why in the world I would do this to myself when I know what happens. Stay away from gluten folks!!! I know better. Shame on me.  
    • Lower left abdominal, left pelvic & other random pains
      UPDATE: I got my Celiac Disease (celiac disease) tests back and they were all negative which comforts me and also kind of confuses me more. They ran several Celiac tests and are mailing me all the paperwork. Next visit is with the Gastroenterologist at the beginning of March. I kind of feel so discouraged that I don’t have a diagnosis yet but relieved and selfish at the same time. Ironically a few days ago I ran into an old friend/colleague of mine and she has Non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) and had the exact same symptoms as me, which was a ray of hope that this might be the issue, but I’ve still not been “officially” diagnosed.  Eliminating the gluten from my diet has helped in eliminating almost all of my bloating and most of the other random pains too, but this lower left abdominal dull ache is still bothering me. My friend/colleague expressed that her aches in that location took several months to eventually feel better. I think I’ve also noticed that dairy and a few other of the cross-reactive foods do actually bother me and I will be needing to cut them out till I heal as well. My friend/colleague thought that after a month, at which point my GI Doc appointment will be, that I should notice some sort of pain difference in my lower left abdomen as long as I don’t get cross-contaminated by accident if I am actually suffering from NCGS. Since I still seem to exhibit some occasionally bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation and my lower left dull ache but nothing else still makes me wonder. No fever. No blood in stool. No acute pain. No vomiting. No nausea. No shortness of breath. No loss of appetite. No headaches. Not tired. Don’t drink nor smoke. And when I sleep on my back the dull ache seems to vanish. And the PCP ruled out other organ issues that they normally check for. Hoping the GI Doc will do an ultrasound or sonogram, upper GI, endoscopy or colonoscopy or whatever, but I’m confused because if I don’t have celiac disease isn’t it true that none of these tests will detect NCGS? After taking my wife to the ER recently for what she thought was a heart attack which was, thankfully, only a hiatal hernia, that has left us with over a 10k hospital bill. Not sure how much insurance will cover yet and our money tree burned down years ago. So disappointed that there’s still no test for NCGS. My aches all seemed to have reached a pinnacle within a week or less last Thanksgiving. Is that how fast everyone else’s symptoms manifested as well? Thank you.
