Lets talk about mayo

Candy | Aug 12, 2008 12:24 PM

I have been a life long Hellman's user except when I could get Cain's, Duke's or some other good regional mayo. Recently Hellman's brought out a couple of new products. One is a canola based mayo and the other olive oil based. I dismissed the olive oil product because it said mayonnaise dressing. That made me real suspicious and there were no small jars to try before committing to a regular sized jar. I bought the canola, it was labeled real mayonnaise and cholesterol free. DH and I both noticed a pronounced sweetness. I looked at the label and sure enough there is sugar in there! I went to the grocery today and looked at all of the mayo. Hellman's. Kraft, house brand etc. ALL contain SUGAR! Why? I try to avoid all unnecessary sugars and am sensitive to sweetness in food unless it belongs there. I guess I am going to have to make my own mayo too. It is not a big chore but is just one more thing. I guess this is a rant, but somethings.......!
