Most store-bought mayos are made with vegetable oil due to its mild indistinct flavor. Unfortunately, the luxury of the mild flavor we are all used to comes with a price. Vegetable oils undergo harsh chemical extraction processes, resulting in an altering of their chemical makeup and high levels of toxins.
Chosen Foods avocado oil, by contrast, is extracted via a cold-press, chemical-free process, leaving healthy nutrients intact. Avocado Oil’s mild, buttery flavor makes for a great dietary substitution for vegetable oil and the perfect base for Paleo mayo.
