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:

    • My son is 5 and his symptoms are all behavioral and neurological. If he eats a few pretzels he will develop something called a stereotypy where his fingers become sort of stuck in distorted positions for days. If he eats gluten he also experiences auditory and visual hallucinations, insomnia, loss of balance and fine motor, periods of confusion (doesn't know where he is), dialated pupils, chronic post nasal drip, keratosis pilaris covering torso, extreme behavioral issues, constipation and bloating. We've been to 3 neurologists, 2 allergists, an endocrinologist, psychological, psychiatrist, dermatologist,  infectious disease specialist and soon will see a gastroenterologist. He's tested negative for celiac and doesn't have the gene which would indicate gluten as an issue for him. Despite these facts, we entirely removed gluten and dairy from his diet and he is a normal happy playful child again, living the life he should be living.  He's had a few instances of dietary mishaps at school which were difficult to recover from. We implemented the AIP diet which for us included no grains (no corn, rice or quinoa), no dairy, no legumes (especially soy), no eggs and limited nightshades. Basically, we have been eating only vegetables, fruits, meats and nuts. Nothing processed. It works. Now we are at the point of adding things back into his diet and it's going well. We've determined that he's sensitive to a particular baking mix brand called Simple Mills. So there are only two possibilities to this a) Simple Mills brand isn't as gluten free as it needs to be or b)my son is actually sensitive to baking soda.  I also think he might be dealing with intestinal permeability or "leaky gut". I've been reading about a protein called zonulin and I question whether that could be a potential biomarker in our case. Prayers for your daughter. If you think it's a dietary trigger then you are right and I encourage you to never give up. You will find an answer if you keep looking. I promise.  
    • Well.... it can be... the plastic lid on the lovely chicken salad you brought for lunch sticks, you pull too hard and it, and half your salad going flying all over the company computer?  
    • @cyclinglady I heard that there were problems with Armour Thyroid when it came to gluten a few years ago. I thought it was no longer safe? @MegamaniacI had forgot to put that in my original post that I have a lot of issues with anxiety as well. I've never actually been officially diagnosed with a type of depression/anxiety/etc, but I've had problems with that ever since I was pretty young (I think before puberty). I'm sorry to hear about your medical field experience. I've actively sought out doctors (and got lucky having a great primary dr) over the past few years since very few seem to know much about it. The fact that a doctor would laugh at a patient for anything is pretty infuriating. Sorry to hear that. I went to a gastro that barely listened to a word I was saying and only offered a short term "solution" so I never went back to him.
    • He left a voicemail (which I was really thankful for bc it is SO hard to get ahold of someone) and said the celiac panel came back positive and told me to start a gluten free diet and asked me to call him. He said he was going to set me up with a nutritionist. I will definitely check out the newbie page. I am in the navy and I'm pretty sure I get kicked out for this. The first grocery trip was pretty difficult for me. I almost cried thinking about how different my life will be. Thanks for the support everyone ! 
    • No I don't know what that is.  The school's been understanding but I just can't have her hurting the other kids were attacking the principal so I've decided to keep her home until she starts acting normal again.   She has not been officially diagnosed with celiacs we have an appointment soon.  She is allergic to gluten wheat and milk.  It seems like the gluten or the wheat affect her mood greatly.
