Alternative For Mayonnaise?
0

19 posts in this topic

I love mayo but lately I can't eat more than a few bites of it without feeling nauseous. I've tried three different brands and it's all the same. :(  Anyone else like this?  Have any of you found a good tasting alternative? I really miss my salads!

Have you tried something soy free? Lots of people have soy problems and you could simply need a soy free mayo replacement.

hummus is a good option for replacing mayo on sandwiches and such.  Greek yogurt can be used to replace mayo for recipes like chicken salad.

 

There is also some replacements products buy Smart Balance (or Earth Balance) but I have never found them at my grocery store.

 

If your gut is damaged it could be a difficulty with the fat malabsorbtion, and that can get better as your gut heals.  If it is another food intolerance/allergy mayo has eggs in it and most of the time soy too.

Tahini sauce and tzatziki sauce are great on sandwiches, and I second using hummus. Lots of these sauces can also add protein, which a lot of us celiacs are deficient in.

I have taken to frying or poaching an egg to pop on top of a salad :)

If it turns out to be the egg in mayo that is bothering you, there are egg-free mayo products on the market. One such is called Veganaise. There is also the possibility that the type of oil is the problem. Many mayonnaise products have soy and/or canola, both of which are known to be troublesome to many.

 

You can also make your own mayo, which is very easy to do. Then you'll know exactly what's in it, and you can experiment with the recipe if you need to. Homemade also costs less.

I am not allergic to eggs, so have not tried this eggless mock mayo recipe.

 

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon dry mustard

dash paprika

dash cayenne

1 Tablespoon vinegar

1 cup canola oil

1 cup water

2 teaspoons arrowroot

1 teaspoon xanthan gum

1 Tablespoon lemon juice

dash onion powder

 

Blend together until mayonnaise consistency, store as you would mayonnaise. Looks, smells, and tastes like the real thing. Use for pasta and bean salads.

Since arrowroot needs to be cooked, I'd suggest combining the water which is already called for in the recipe with the arrowroot, and cook that until fully thickened. Some evaporation will occur during the cooking process, so measure afterward, and add more water as necessary, to bring it back up to about one cup. Allow to cool, then proceed with the recipe. Alternatively, if you can have corn, there's Instant ClearJel, which does not require cooking.

Good suggestion. I have no idea where the recipe came from, but someone named Melissa Taylor suggested it. On ocassion I make my own mayo using eggs and and it is excellent. I have many food issues, including soy, and am so happy that I can purchase Best Foods Canola mayo at a reasonable price at Walmart.

Here is another possible alternative.....this one posted by Suzin....perhaps on this website.

 

1/2 cup oil

1/2 cup water

1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1 Tablespoon lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon dry mustard powder

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon sweet rice flour

1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum

 

Put all ingredients in a blender jar and blend for about 3 minutes. This is a basic recipe....I usually add some seasonings....1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1 teaspoon parsley flakes and a small pinch cayenne to make it a ranch dressing but you can add any seasoning you like. This keeps well in the frig, about 2 weeks.

Yes, I've seen this one (or something very much the same) on this forum before, and the sweet potato flour would of course also need to be cooked first. It's not a big deal to do, but it seems to be left out of the directions most of the time. A raw flour/starch simply doesn't thicken nearly as much as a cooked one. Incidentally, from all my experiments with making mayo, lemon juice makes for a stiffer result than vinegar, but of course there is a difference in taste. Some brands of mayo use one of these, while others use both.

When I read the responses - some make it because they can't find a soy free one where they live or an egg free one they like.  Has nothing to do with gluten.  Just thier other intolerances or allergies.

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
