Have you ever flipped over the jar on your store-bought mayonnaise and looked at all of the nasty ingredients it contains? Most commercial mayonnaise contains highly inflammatory oils including soybean and/or canola oil. These oils contain an excessive amount of omega-6 fats (pro-inflammatory) and little to no omega-3 fats (anti-inflammatory) to balance them out. It's important to optimise our intake of omega-3 and omega-6 fats for health and longevity. So, if you really like mayonnaise - try making your own and avoid unnecessary inflammation!
Coconut oil often gets demonised for its saturated fat content. However, the evidence linking saturated fat to cardiovascular disease is inconclusive, and we do know that saturated fatty acids are the most stable against heating and other processing methods. Coconut oil also has a unique flavour that works wonderfully in cooking and for sauces.
Please send us a message and let us know how you enjoyed making your own mayonnaise! We'd love to hear from you.
