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.

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 would like to ask if anyone has eaten puffed rice from Arrowhead Mills.  My daughter, who has celiac, wants to eat it and I am looking for advice.  The only ingredient is rice, but they do not test the product so do not label it gluten free.  I called the company and they say they clean all their equipment between each product, but since they don't test it cannot label it as gluten free.  Would you allow your daughter to eat this product?
    • He might have celiac disease (or just the start of it).  He might have Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance, which is real, but there is not a test for it.  He might have other food intolerances (milk, dyes, etc.).  You have been to an allergist and he did not positive for allergies (I assume wheat was included in the panel.).  Trialing a diet is fine, even a gluten free diet, when you ruled out everything.  But you have that quirky TTG result.  I gave you the link from the MayoClinic (top notch) and their algorithm recommends further evaluation.  An allergist is not a celiac expert nor is primary care doctor.  You should get a referral to a Ped GI.  If she/he suggests a gluten-free diet, then fine.  Because if he improves then, the GI will give you a diagnosis.  By the time you see the GI, he might have ordered another round of celiac blood tests, genetic tests, or he might want to order an endoscopy.  This case is not clear and that is a bummer.   The cure is the diet.  But he will be going to school and a diagnosis will pave the way for accommodations all the way to college.  And anyone here will tell you that once you get off gluten (and that is the root cause), it is awful....horrific... to go back on it for further testing.   This is his life and yours.  You must do what is best for your family.  I wish you well and we are here to support you.  I care.  I am mom.  
    • This just published: Highlights   • Kernel-based gluten contamination in oats skews gluten analysis results. • Grinding inadequately disperses gluten to allow a single accurate analysis. • Lognormal distribution of the test results renders a single test unrepresentative.   Abstract Oats are easily contaminated with gluten-rich kernels of wheat, rye and barley. These contaminants are like gluten ‘pills’, shown here to skew gluten analysis results. Using R-Biopharm R5 ELISA, we quantified gluten in gluten-free oatmeal servings from an in-market survey. For samples with a 5–20 ppm reading on a first test, replicate analyses provided results ranging <5 ppm to >160 ppm. This suggests sample grinding may inadequately disperse gluten to allow a single accurate gluten assessment. To ascertain this, and characterize the distribution of 0.25-g gluten test results for kernel contaminated oats, twelve 50 g samples of pure oats, each spiked with a wheat kernel, showed that 0.25 g test results followed log-normal-like distributions. With this, we estimate probabilities of mis-assessment for a ‘single measure/sample’ relative to the <20 ppm regulatory threshold, and derive an equation relating the probability of mis-assessment to sample average gluten content.   The full article can be accessed at Gluten Free Watchdog if are a subscriber.
    • If I may say something right now, the suggestions, advice, and information provided to you in this forum is just that: suggestions, advice, and information.  What has been provided can be used as tools to help figure out what is going on.  Please don't go away disgruntled or too frustrated.  There have been times myself when advice and suggestions was given to me, and I was not sure what to do about all the information.  I had to think and pray on it before I could act on it because my brain was functioning enough to do something about it right away.  It was on survival mode.  Forgive me if I am wrong, but I believe this is where you are at right now.  You are not sure where to go or what to do, so your body is just doing what it can to function day in, day out.  If this assumption is correct, I GET IT!  It is not fun, neither is it easy. Don't give up.  Things will get better.  Take all of this information and go to your primary doctor to see if you both can put your heads together and figure this out.  The answer may not come right away, but be patient.  it could be everything coming at you at once that making your body go into hypersentive mode.  I don't know, because I am not in your situation.  Until you go to the doctor, do what you know to do and God will take care of the rest.  There is something that has kept me sane through this past year: It will be okay because God is in control.  He knows what is happening to you and your future is going to be.  When you have a good day, enjoy those moments.  When you have a bad day, bring back to memory those good days and see if you can do something for another person.  I have found this year that if I focus on someone else through the bad times especially things don't seem as grim. I will be praying for you.
