Earth Balance Mindful Mayo - Is It Good?
0

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:

    • This all makes me want to break out my ic maker and see if I can recall how to use it. Very inspirational!
    • Has he had a recent blood test for Celiac?  That would be where I would start. If it is still negative, I would look for other things, like a FODMAP issue.
    • My son (age 7, almost 8) has had GI issues for several years.  Almost 2 years ago (about a week after he turned 6), we had him tested for celiac and his blood test results were negative.  His test results were:  tTG IgA:  1; Immunoglobin A:  129.  I've read that false negative results do occur, but that typically it is an IgA deficiency that causes false negative tTg IgA results, and my son was not IgA deficient according to this blood test.  But his symptoms (some of which ebb and flow but which have been getting worse the last several months, include the following: --Complaints of tummy pain and nausea --Excess gas, bloating --Stools often look abnormal:  mucous in stool, often very bulky stools, gassy, explosive bowel movements, etc. --Extremely low BMI (He has always been below the 3rd percentile for weight, with height in the 50-75th percentile, but at his check-up in January (age 7.5), he fell off his height curve (weighed 42 pounds and measured 48.5 inches)  --Oral health issues:  He not infrequently complains of canker sores; At dentist visit a couple weeks ago, they discovered 4 cavities (This was the first time he allowed x-rays to be taken).   There may be some discoloration of his teeth as well, but I'm not 100% sure it the same kind of enamel defect I've read about.  I did not think to ask dentist about celiac at the time but I've since read about connections between oral health and celiac.  --weird blood test results:  I went back and looked at the blood tests that were taken 2 years ago, and it turns out some of the abnormal results can be linked to celiac.  For example:  Low cholesterol (Total Cholesterol was 114), which I read can be linked to malabsorption of fats caused by celiac; High Asbolute Eosinophils (result:  791; normal range is 15-600).  And Lo and behold, according to google, high eosinophils can be associated with celiac.  He also had low MPV results and high triglycerides.  Not sure what those mean.  Some of the abnormal results (like the eosinophils) are also linked to allergies (he has seasonal allergies), and to other auto-immune diseases -- we have a family history of ulcerative colitis so that is also a concern.  We tried a gluten fee diet for about a month several months ago, but I don't think it was ever 100% gluten free -- there were several times we were tripped up by school or after school snacks, and meals when traveling.  Prior to the time we tried the gluten-free diet, my son was not really complaining about his tummy troubles (they have ebbed and flowed --over the last several years, there have been period where sometimes 3-5 times a week he has bouts of nausea and pain, and months long periods with very few complaints).  At the time we tried a gluten-free diet, he was probably in one of the months long periods of feeling pretty good, few complaints.  My recollection is we dropped the gluten-free diet because we didn't see a big difference.   But my son recently told me he felt a little better on the gluten-free diet. I'm pretty sure the next step is to do the endoscopy/colonoscopy.  The GI doctor suggested this last year, given our family history of ulcerative colitis and unexplained symptoms, but we were hesitant to put him through this when, at the time, he was feeling pretty good.  But his symptoms have come roaring back the last several months, and at this point, we just want to find the answer.  We will plan to wait to restart a gluten-free diet until after the endoscopy.  So my questions: --Does anyone have experience with a false negative blood test result, particularly in children? --How bad is the endoscopy procedure?  What should we expect during the prep and after the procedure? --Any insight into what his symptoms mean?  
    • Once upon a time, bananas were thought by many doctors to possess tremendous healing properties. Bananas were used to help diabetics to use weight. Doctors told mothers to feed bananas to their infants starting at 4 weeks. And for a long time, the diet seemed to help people "recover" from celiac disease. Invented by Dr. Sidney Haas in 1924, the high-calorie, banana-based diet excluded starches, but included bananas, milk, cottage cheese, meat and vegetables. View the full article
    • You've opened up a great discussion here, peterfc.  Most illuminating.   I remember when I lived in Oz back in the 1980s there were three frozen custard outlets around Sydney.  I think, from memory, they only sold about three flavours - vanilla (plain), strawberry and chocolate.  But the ice cream was absolutely delicious.   I think ice cream made with a custard is a great way to enhance the nutritional value of the stuff - and possibly reduce the fat content to boot?  Brilliant.
