Reduced fat mayonnaise didn’t sound like it would taste as good as full fat mayonnaise. But, then I tried Best Foods (also known as Hellman’s) reduced fat mayonnaise dressing, and I was pleasantly surprised with the flavor.
The Best Foods reduced fat mayonnaise, tastes very similar to full fat mayonnaise. I have used in on sandwiches, in deviled eggs, and in potato salad. Everyone I have served these food items to, cannot tell the difference.
The Best Foods reduced fat mayonnaise dressing has 20 calories per serving/tablespoon. There are 2 grams of fat per serving. There are zero saturated, trans, and mono unsaturated fats. There is 1 gram of poly unsaturated fats, zero grams of cholesterol, 125 mg of sodium. Sugars make up less than one gram.
Reading the ingredients, soybean oil is second, after water. The third ingredient is high fructose corn syrup. Much has been written about high fructose corn syrup (which is a sugar), so use it sparingly.
Comparing reduced fat mayonnaise dressing to full fat mayonnaise, full fat mayonnaise has 90 calories per serving, and 10 grams of fat.
As an alternative to full fat mayonnaise, I think Best Foods (Hellman’s), is a good choice.
