When people think of mayo, they automatically think of a creamy product that is made from oil, eggs, and spices. Because traditional mayo is made from eggs, this has left vegans with no way to enjoy it. Although many companies have attempted to create vegan mayo spreads over the years, the results have been mostly lackluster. The biggest problem with creating a vegan mayo is there is no egg to emulsify the spread so it lacks creaminess and thickness. Thankfully, Hampton Creek has risen to the challenge of overcoming this obstacle so they could create an Egg-Free Mayo that some say tastes even better than the traditional condiment.
Before they were able to create their Just Mayo, they researched around 5000 plants. Out of their research, they were able to find 13 that would offer the right level of emulsification to help them create their creamy spread. Finally, they decided on the perfect plant to create their mayo. This plant offers the taste of eggs and allows their mayo to stand up to other traditional types that include eggs.
The Canadian Yellow Split Pea is the perfect addition to their Just Mayo because it is able to entirely replace the eggs that are normally found in these spreads. This means the emulsification process can commence without the finished product lacking creaminess or thickness. The special pea protein they discovered has revolutionized the way people view vegan mayo. This pea has also allowed Hampton Creek to be able to come out with an egg substitute that looks and tastes just like the real thing. This product should be on store shelves in the coming months.
Their Just Mayo line was finally released and now includes four delicious flavors. Consumers can purchase the mayo in original flavor, chipotle, sriracha, and garlic. These delicious spreads can be used on sandwiches, in salads, and in a variety of recipes. For more information on their Just Mayo line, check out Hampton Creek’s website or their social media pages.
