Is Vegan Mayo Healthy?
If you’re a fan of the condiment, you’ve probably wondered whether or not vegan mayo is healthy. We’ve got the full lowdown here.
Mayo is a fridge staple, used for sandwiches, burgers, salads, and most controversial of all, cakes (I'm not lying, google it). The condiment is loved by many, and vegan mayo is no exception. Now that vegan mayo has hit supermarkets, vegans and non-vegans alike have been enjoying the plant-based wonder.
Is vegan mayo healthy?
Vegan mayo is generally a bit healthier than dairy-based mayo, containing less saturated fats and Vegenaise contains no cholesterol, which can’t be said in the case of an original jar of Hellman’s.
That being said, like most things vegan mayo should be eaten in moderation and as part of a balanced diet. However, this doesn’t mean that vegan mayo isn’t to still be enjoyed — mix into salads, add to your ‘chuna’ sandwich mixes and definitely go ahead and dip your chips in it!
