Caution: not all real mayo is equal. This the ingredients from the leading brand of real mayo. I would not buy this popular brand of mayo because of the highlighted ingredients.

I've tried to make the mayo recipe from the paleo book and I did not love it, but this stuff is really good.

If you eat the reduced fat mayo, light, low fat mayo I would toss it- it has chemicals that will do more damage that the fat from real eggs can ever do.

So funny...yeah...it's gluten-free. Really....and what is "color added" and why do they have to add color. The website also says no trans fat per serving, but HFCS is trans fat even if it is not enough for the government to label it as such it is dangerous for your body and I will explain all the details at the grocery store trip this Sunday.
The not so good thing about this is the canola oil - best to stay away from vegetable oils and I will explain more at the workshop this Sat and in my newsletter.
I put them in romaine lettuce boats.
