I’ve made it at home and wasn’t thrilled. Is there a mayonnaise without sugar or fake sugars?

Most do have some sugar, but it is SO far down on the ingredient list that it is still less than 1 gram per serving. Hellman is what I use, and that's how it is, less than 1 gram. it is not sweet tasting. Very eggy.

Actually it lists sugar as an ingredient but it must be very small amount because the nutrition info is 0g sugars per serving.

Vegenaise has brown rice syrup as the ingredient and again 0g sugar per serving.

And both have 0 cholesterol! :)

Duke's Mayonnaise is sugar free.  I know it's a southern US thing but we have it in stores here in PA.  And Amazon.  I've never eaten it but my southern family members won't use anything else.

Oh yes, I was looking at the per serving, not the ingredients.

Dukes Mayo is so good. If you have it available, give it a try.

Duke's is what we started using when we gave up sugar the first time and just kept using it. Regular mayonnaise doesn't have a significant amount of sugar in it, but things like Miracle Whip and low-fat mayo do.

Mayo is really low on my list of things to buy sugar-free because the amount of sugar is really low, and you don't use tons of it. Well, most people don't, lol.

Another vote for Duke's mayo.  I started using because it didn't have sugar in it but it is so good that it is now all that I will buy.   I don't have any trouble finding it here in Ohio but it can also be purchased from Amazon.

Our Kroger carries Duke's mayo - and we're Midwest, not the south.

If you can't find Dukes, you might try making homemade again. Different oil, different vinegar, different spices all change the taste pretty dramatically.

 

The only reason we don't make it more at my house is because it's so amazing that I would be eating it plain. With a spoon.

I watch sugar, but mayo is very low so I don't worry about that.

 

Otherwise, hmmm..I don't think I've ever seen a sugar free one.  I don't care for homemade either!

Pretty sure Duke's is regional.  No Duke's in my neck of the woods.

If you were making Mayo, the problem was likely in the oil you used.  I'd give you my mayo recipe, but it is in-process right now.

When I'm doing Whole30 (which includes no added sugars or sweeteners of any type) I use either Tessemae mayo (becoming increasingly impossible to find) or Primal Kitchen (I've started seeing this in my Publix).  They are acquired tastes.

I can’t afford good oil, so I tried it with Walmart brand light tasting olive oil. Dd liked it, but I didn’t like the oily aftertaste or feeling.

I’m sure I can get Duke’s on Amazon. I’ll try that. :)

Mayo is minimal in sugar for me, but it brings up a kid battle. Dd loves her condiments, and we’ve been getting the healthier versions, which take some time to get used to. When she’s in a mood, she likes to point out that the mayo I use in tuna 3x a week has sugar. So since she’s not wrong, I need to find something tolerable.

There's a definite taste difference between Duke's and regular mayos that include sugar. A born Southerner ;), I vastly prefer Duke's! Now this only applies to the regular mayo version, not the light or light with olive oil, as those both have sugar.

I just do egg, oil, lemon juice, garlic or mustard.  Maybe a little salt. 

On the other hand my mother puts a can of sweetened condensed milk in a jug and stirs through vinegar.  Gag.

I have been making my own mayo for almost 40 years. I never add sugar. All may except mine tastes funny. :-)

 

1 egg

1ish tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice (I use Bragg's ACV, but I have used red wine vinegar)

1 cup oil (I use extra light olive oil)

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp dry mustard

*1/4ish tsp nutritional yeast (I like the flavor, but it's completely optional)

 

Put egg, vinegar, seasonings and 1/4 c oil in the bowl of a food processor and process for a minute. Add remaining oil in a continuing stream while the food processor runs. Process for a minute. Voila. Tasty mayo with no sugar. Scoop it out and store in the fridge.

 

You can double this recipe.

 

You can do this in a food processor, or if you're really determined you can make it by hand. :-) I use a food processor because it's easy to scrape out the mayo.

 

The kind of oil and the kind of vinegar you use will change the flavor. So will the kind of salt.

I also cannot afford good oil. I have been using safflower oil, and I usually use about 1/4 canola.

One thing I learned recently while searching the internet for mayo recipes.   Your food processor probably already has a hole that will drizzle the oil in.  Look at the stick-thing that you use to push stuff into the processor.   It probably has a little hole in the bottom.  So, you put everything but the oil in the middle.   Put the stick-thing in and add the oil to the inside of the stick-thing.   When it starts to drizzle the oil for you, start the food processor.

I don’t have a food processor.

When I made mayo the texture and consistency were great. I just didn’t like the flavor.

Trader Joe's mayo has no sugar as an ingredient. I've also found that I hate my homemade mayo when it's made with olive oil. I use safflower or just plain old canola - much more neutral taste. I use a stick blender in a wide-mouth mason jar.
