Anyone plant-based who loves lathering vegan mayo in sandwiches, on chips and just about everywhere else might be wondering what the substitute is made from. Keep reading to find out.

Vegan mayo

Vegan mayonnaise is a plant-based lunch-time saviour. Our potato salads are creamier and vegan burgers are that much moister (sorry, but they are).

What is vegan mayo made of?

At the root of most vegan mayonnaises, there’s generally plant-based milk which is often unsweetened soy. When combined with the remaining ingredients, this acts as the emulsifier, binding the mayo together – much like an egg does in non-vegan mayo. 

After this, oil, neutral-tasting vinegar and salt are added, perhaps with the addition of mustard, herbs, spices, garlic or maple syrup for seasoning.
