    Big Food strikes again. 5% olive oil :rolleyes:

    And apparently, olive oil itself can be cut with other oils. Well, according to Vinnie Tortorich. That may be US only, but nothing surprises me.

    If people do make their own OO mayo, then I strongly recommend using the ‘mild OO’.

    i tried making extra virgin OO mayo once. A bit too... um... intense? dominating? pungent? for my tastes.

    Surely rapeseed oil is another one that is advised to use. As healthy as olive oil but different taste.

    I'd second that! But it's definitely expensive, so I tend to buy an extra jar or two when Ocado has it on offer.

    However I've also used Hellmann's for donkeys years, and there's only a small quantity of oil in a dollop of mayonnaise. I have nothing against rapeseed oil apart from the fact that it's been grown very locally and the pollen used to give me rather bad hay fever...:bigtears: :eek:

    Depends how it is produced ... but I avoid anything from seeds at all times.

    I am NOT happy with something called Olive Oil Mayo, when it has 60% rapeseed!

    I have a Bamix mixer - one of its tricks is making mayonnaise - very handy and you know exactly what is in it - at least, hopefully the olive oil is what it claims to be.

    I just saw at Costco (in Canada) a mayo being marketed as "Keto Mayonnaise". Which is odd since any proper mayo is carb free, or nearly so. It was made with coconut oil primarily.
