An egg-free mayo that actually tastes good

What: Vegenaise mayonnaise.

Problem it solves: The best egg-free mayonnaise I’ve found, hands down, and I’ve tried many.

Good for other allergy sufferers: I buy the original version, which also is free of every other major allergen except soy. The same company also has a line of vegan salad dressings that look interesting, at $2.70 and up for 12 ounces. They don’t work for me, because they all have garlic, so I haven’t tried them.

The cost: About $3 for a pint or $4.30 for a quart of Vegenaise.

Review: This is as close to the real deal as you’re going to find – close enough that it fools many people. The downside: It tends to separate in salads. That makes sense, because in real mayonnaise, the egg is the emulsifier – the stuff that holds it all together. I’ve been able to work around that by making sure the pasta, potatoes, etc. are stone cold before I add the mayo. In the summer, I let the salad ingredients chill in the fridge for a while before I add the dressing. Seems to be working so far.

Available locally: At Raley’s, in the refrigerated area of the natural foods section.

Web site: Follow Your Heart Natural Foods. There’s a ZIP code search for retailers, but it’s not accurate. It doesn’t pick up the Raley’s where I regularly buy the product.
