Trader Joe's Reduced Fat Mayo - Vegan?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So after years of nayonaise and veganaise, we just couldn't take it anymore and I broke down and bought a jar of regular mayo at Trader Joe's. (we're vegetarian, so it wasn't a huge deal to us, but we try to avoid eggs)



I just looked at the now empty jar, and it's vegan! Someone can confirm by looking at the ingredients - I'm not an expert on the hidden non vegan ingredients.



Trader Joe's Reduced Fat Mayonnaise "eggless" "dairy free"

"Ingredients: Water, Expeller Pressed Canola Oil, Corn Starch, Distilled Vinegar, Cider Vinegar, Soy Protein Isolate, Salt, Lemon Juice Concentrate, Onion Powder, Xantahn Gum, Natural Vitamin E, Natural Flavors, Oleoresin Paprika, Oleoresin Tumeric."



I checked out Oleoresin and it's just a type of concentrate....

What exactly could you "not take"?

The ingredients don't look altogether too different from that of Vegenaise...does it somehow taste radically different???

I'm not sure what we stopped liking. At first I loved veganaise and thought it was great, better than mayo even, but there was something about it after years and years that my husband and I would just stare at each other, stare at the jar and make a squishy face And I didn't like it in dips very much, although it was okay on sandwiches.



I really was a big fan and recommended it to everyone I know, but I guess we just grew apart?

Yes, it's reduced fat and tastes like sour, gelatinous paste.

Somehow, it does to me and to my husband. It definitely smells like mayo, which I never thought veganaise did.



It could all be in my head, but it is cheaper!

I tried the TJ's reduced fat mayo too, mostly out of curiosity. It's been sitting in my fridge for months now. I can't throw anything away so I'll finish it, somehow, but I definitely won't be buying it again. It has a very funky taste to it. "Gelatinous paste" is a pretty good description.



I've tried a few vegan mayos: Nayonaise, Spectrum brand and Veganaise. I'm sticking with Veganaise from here on out. That stuff is awesome.
