Mayonaise is the new favourite side item of most youngsters, especially those who love junk food like MOMOS!! Earlier people used to wait till they had momos for having mayonnaise. And requested the vendor to give a little bit of extra mayonnaise. LOL, like free dhaniyaa.. Now a wide variety of mayonnaise is available in the market. Different flavours of vegan mayo are being launched by companies being tried by customers every now and then.
Well, with time, mayo has become a household item which you can find in most middle-class homes, at least in metropolitan cities. Most of us don’t even know what mayonnaise is but we just love having it with salads, sandwiches, burgers, bread etc.
My sister adds mayo to virtually every junk item she cooks even maggie! And some of us suddenly have this wake up call one find a day and realise that ohh, mayo is made up of eggs.
Probably, some of you reading this didn’t even know before I broke it to you that mayo is primarily made up of egg yolk.
Yes, there are vegan options, now and that’s what this blog is all about. But before that lets at least understand what mayo is to understand how to make its vegan version.
What Is Mayonaise?
‘Mayonnaise’ is derived from an old french word called moyeu meaning egg yolk. So, Mayonnaise is actually an emulsionthat is made by vigorous whisking while vegetable oil is slowly added to egg yolk.
Mayo is often used as a condiment for salads, sandwiches, burgers, french fries, and wraps etc. It is the mother sauces of classic French cooking. There are different stories about the origin of Mayo. Most popular of them dates back to 1756.
Mayonnaise or Mayo became highly popular and now it is one of the most widely used food dressing in USA, Europe and other countries of the world. It contains 40% oil which is way more than what humans should be consuming.
Mayo is high in fat. It is made up of mostly unsaturated fat, from 70% up to 85%. So, if you want to lose weight, or control your fat content, lead a healthy life then consumption of conventional mayo is not recommended.
