Why You Should Ditch Conventional Mayo

Mayo has gotten a bad rap, and for good reason. What started as a clean and natural condiment back in the 1700s by a French Duke turned into a horrendously over-processed jar of junk by the mid 20th century.

Homemade mayonnaise is essentially a blend of oil, eggs and vinegar. Pretty simple, right? However, the jars you find on the shelves at grocery stores boast an ingredient list a mile long that includes soybean and canola oil, preservatives and artificial flavors. By no means is this what the Duke had in mind when he created his “victory sauce.”

The Avocado Oil Mayo Difference

Unlike typical store-bought mayonnaise, Chosen Foods Avocado Oil Mayo is made with real, clean ingredients. Oils like soybean and canola are extremely detrimental to our health, yet they’re being slipped into products left and right. Avocado Oil, on the other hand, is chock full of heart healthy monounsaturated fats and antioxidants. It is the good kind of fat that we all need to function optimally.

Healthy Mayo Imposters

Companies have wised up to the fact that consumers don’t want soy and canola in their food and they’ve started to incorporate healthier options. But don’t be mislead by sneaky marketing tactics that claim a jar of mayonnaise is “made with olive oil” or even avocado oil. Turn the jar around and read the ingredient list for yourself. There is certainly olive oil on the list, but the culprits are still there. They have not removed the soy or canola, they’ve just added to it. Never trust a product at face value – always read the nutrition label.
