I've been searching for a good mayonnaise recipe for a while. I found one I liked that tastes as close to Hellmann's as could be. However, from my research and reading, there are several things about regular and even health-food store mayonnaise that is bad for you. (1) The Oil. Soybean oil isn't healthy. Only fresh soybeans or fermented soybean products are healthy. Anything else from Soy is way too controversial in the circles of "Nutritional Experts". Canola Oil, also another industrial scam. Not healthy at all. Read Johnny Bowden's book "The 150 Healthiest Foods On Earth" and you'll see what he and other experts have to say about Canola Oil. Simply put, it's just not good for you and it comes from a genetically altered plant.
Lastly, when you see "and spices" this continues to be a mystery. But, I have read in several places, that one of the "Spices" is monosodium glutamate. Yes, MSG is a big component of "and spices". "They" simply found another way to get MSG into you and not have to let you know about it on the label.
To really make this recipe healthier, use Organic Omega-3 Eggs from Hens that were free roaming-Free Range, No Antiobiotics / No Hormones. These are the healthiest hens and produce much healthier eggs.
Also, the original version of my recipe contained raw Agave nectar, which I've replaced with Raw Honey. Studies now show that Agave nectar is simply an "agave" version of high fructose corn syrup and contains higher amounts of fructose than HFCS does. Fructose seems to be the bad common denominator. when it's in its natural form (within fruit) it's okay, but outside of fruit, fructose isn't good for you. Fruit yes, fructose no. So much for Agave Nectar being a "health food".
This recipe uses MUCH healthier ingredients and tastes phenomenal. You be the judge. I love Mayo and I love this recipe. I hope you do too.
