THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I had no idea veganaise existed, and we had only been using nayonaise.  None of us liked it, so we usually did without. After reading this thread, I decided to look for the veganaise or the earth balance. I found the veganaise and it is wonderful!!!!! Tastes JUST like real mayo! I had a real tuna sandwich! We have big plans now- a small batch of real potato salad  ;D THANK YOU....This is why I LOVE this board! :-*

Veganaise is good; I'm wondering about the taste of the Earth Balance?

Well, Ginger, someone else may have to report in on the Earth Balance.

I love Vegenaise so much that I have to confess that I've never really even looked for another substitute.  Tried the nayonaise, too, and it was pretty nasty.



I love me a good vegeniase macaroni salad.   :smooch:

Okay, CM, this means you'll have to post your macaroni salad recipe for me.  Please?

The Earth Balance mindful mayos (there are two soy-free versions and one with soy, I believe) and the soy-free Vegenaise are pretty similar.  They both separate after awhile, but they're both fine in dishes which can be stirred.  So . . . chip dip = fine, because I just restir before spooning some out.  And I mix it with buttermilk powder and sour cream, which helps thicken it up a bit.

I buy the Vegenaise via co-op (a friend splits a case with me), but if we run out, I buy the mindful mayo from one of our independent natural food stores or WFM.

I wonder if cornstarch could also thicken it.  I don't have to worry about corn or wheat (I imagine it's likely cross-contaminated) allergies.  I've kind of toyed with the idea of trying a bit of softened cream cheese mixed with sour cream to create a mayonnaise I can use as a binder for crab cakes.

The big problem is that it just doesn't stay in the emulsion.  I don't know that much can help with that.  It stays until you open the lid, then it slowly starts separating.

Does anyone know if there's a sub made without mustard?

joanna, I will look next time I'm in our local chain that carries several of these and in multiple varieties.

How concerned are you with cross-contamination?

CM2, if I get a brand without overt mustard, I can look into the CC issue.  Thanks for checking.  I haven't seen one, but would love it.

Well, I wish I had better news-- I checked today as I was picking up applesauce for DD's food challenge (another story) and I checked ALL of the Vegenaise varieites and the Earth Balance (Healthy-whatever-it-is) version--

sorry.  They all had mustard flour/powder as an ingredient.   :-[
