Egg-free soy-free mayonnaise

Posted on April 29th, 2011 by Alison Read 18 Comments - Add Your Own »

I have been looking for egg-free soy-free mayonnaise, and have finally found it! Vegenaise has always been eggless, but they used soy in all of their mayos. Their new product is soy-free also for those also avoiding soy (mayonnaise is always dairy-free, in case you were wondering).

soy-free-vegenaise1I wanted the mayo for my daughter who is allergic to eggs and intolerant to soy. The funny thing is that since she is 6 years old and has never had mayonnaise, she is not accustomed to it. Someone who discovers their allergies or intolerance later in life wants to find replacements for the things he/she used to eat. Although my daughter is not very interested in it, I think I could use it to widen her food choices with mayonnaise dip for veggies, or maybe she’ll take to tuna salad.  (I never did!) Or, maybe it’s just nice to have it in case she ever feels deprived when we’re all dipping our artichokes in mayo.

It’s great that companies are making products for people with food allergies. I know I’m lucky that I live in area where I can find a wide selection of specialty items. For those living in other parts of the country, it can be so difficult. Ask at your grocery store to see if they can get the products you need.

Soy-Free Vegenaise Dressing and Sandwich Spread is a refrigerated item. The ingredients are: Expeller-pressed Hi-Oleic Safflower Oil, Filtered Water, Brown Rice Syrup, Apple Cider Vinegar, Pea Protein, Sea Salt, Mustard Flour and Lemon Juice Concentrate.

Does anyone have any good recipes that use mayonnaise?

  1. thanks for the tip! i have been hoping they would come out with a soy-free version. and you probably already know this, but generally those with an allergy to chicken eggs (even severe) can tolerate duck eggs. i get them at a local gf market, but sometimes chinese grocers sell them. it’s nice to be able to bake with real eggs…

  2. I was just looking at the Grapeseed Vegenaise last night, hoping that they’d gotten rid of the soy! My store doesn’t carry this soy-free variety yet but I’ll be sure to ask them to order it. I don’t have a favorite recipe because we haven’t really eaten mayonnaise in a long time. I’d like to try adding some salads with mayo into our menu and see if the kids like them.

  3. Here’s another one:

    caveat: never seen it/tried it

  4. Alison, I am addicted to veganaise! i use it for all sorts of stuff instead of mayo (and we don’t need to avoid anything in mayo). I make a killer no bake artichoke dip with it (I can send it to you if you’d like – you just blitz a bunch of ingredients in the food processor and it’s so good). I like using it for sammies for Bella’s lunch since it doesn’t get all funky like regular mayo. so glad you found the soy free version!

  5. Great find!

  6. Finally! I’m soy free and have been looking for something like this for years. Thanks for the info!

  7. Gab,
    Yes, please send me the artichoke dip recipe! Does it have dairy?

  8. I just bought some Vegenaise yesterday. I think there was only one choice though. :-( Will be on alert now for the soy-free version. Thanks, Alison!

  9. We actually raise our own ducks due to chicken egg intolerance. They are very yummy! :)

  10. I have soy, dairy and egg allergies and I just discovered this mayo a few weeks ago and was thrilled! The taste is really good and it’s opened many possibilities again, though simple mayo on a turkey sandwich has been my favorite. Yay for Vegenaise!

  11. I wish more food processors would make foods that are soy and peanut free. Most people don’t realize how many products contain derivatives of soy beans. I believe many people could get off medications for asthma if they understood how to avoid the foods to which they are allergic or sensitive!

  12. Kadren,
    I have heard this about duck eggs… I imagine they’re expensive if you don’t have your own ducks.

  13. I like the taste also, and I am now eating it because I figured it’s safer for my daughter if I don’t have it around me and in my mouth!

  14. ” Pea Protein”; from what pea?

  15. I have a friend that is looking for a mayo, and nope so far nothing, I thought this would be the answer for him, but no because it has lemon juice, any one know of any other out there with out the lemon juice, eggs and also none of the gums some add???

  16. I am so thrill about the soy free vegenaise. I too was hoping they would come out with both a soy and egg free version. I usually make my dairy free cheese sauce with it. It consists of the mayo with sautéed minced garlic, earth balance and dairy/soy free cheese. First sauté 2 to 3 finely chopped garlic with the earth balance, add cup to cup and half vegenaise and about 1/2 cup to a cup of cheese. All measurements go up and down depending on the amount of gluten free pasta you cook. Cook up mixture and then mix in with your pasta. Enjoy! If anyone has questions just comment back.

  17. I completely forgot 1 to 1 1/2 tsp of yeast flakes and salt and pepper to taste. Oops

  18. Wish I could find this stuff… soy variant seems to be the only one missing from the shelf at our local Whole Foods and health food markets. And ordering online… a minimum $22 shipping fee. Any suggestions on where you found your bottle appreciated.
