Time to do a Vegan Mayo Comparison: Hellman’s, Follow Your Heart Vegenaise, and Trader Joe’s Version with Avocado Oil.
Somehow I have gotten off the mayo kick lately … probably because of my a new addiction to the Trader Joe’s vegan creamy dill salad dressing, which I feel can sub for mayo in many applications.
Because of that, my mayonnaise consumption has declined dramatically during the past year. Today, I finally finished our jar of Vegenaise. When I looked in the cupboard to replace it, I realized that we had two other types of vegan Mayo hiding in there: the Hellmann’s vegan mayo, and the Trader Joe’s vegan mayo spread & dressing, made with avocado oil, both of which I have not yet tried.
Have you tried any of these? If you are indeed a fan of mayo, which ones were your favorites? Growing up, we never had Mayo in our house, it was always “Miracle Whip.” So far I have quite enjoyed the taste of grapeseed oil Vegenaise to mimic that miracle whip taste.
I am including the nutrition labels for all three of these for comparison. What do you think? Is there much of any difference, nutrition wise, among these three?
Feel free to share your experiences regarding vegan mayo, rants and raves, in the comments.

I know people who vehemently hate Miracle Whip but I was fine with it. I used to get it back in the day because it had less calories than regular mayo. Honestly, I’m fine with any vegan mayo and just buy the cheapest which so far is always the Hellmann’s. Even the Target brand vegan mayo comes out to being about the same price per ounce, maybe a little more and the jars are so small so I only opt for that when the Hellmann’s is out of stock. I’ve had the Earth Balance a few years ago because it was at all the grocery outlet stores and it was fine. Tasted like mayo to me! I use a small amount anyway, like half a teaspoon to a teaspoon on sandwiches so I can’t tell any difference. I guess I could see how mayo lovers might could tell?
