Say bye-bye to Kewpie Mayonnaise, a sweet Japanese mayonnaise!
Growing up, my mother made loads of potato salads with Kewpie, and we always eat them with sweet buttery bread with pork floss (yes, gross!) As I turned vegan in 2006, I stopped eating my mother’s Taiwanese potato salads for the sake of my health and animals (and living creatures of the sea).
I would like to introduce the newest product from Japan: MayoDorée (thanks to a fabulous Aussie food blogger!) P.S. MayoDorée is still at a sampling stage. Their dream is to see MayoDorée on the shelves of your local supermarket or at your favorite vegan restaurant, as soon as possible! The original mayo-dressing in Japan is called Mayodore (with the accent on the last “e”), and MayoDorée wanted to keep the name. It became MayoDorée in the US, with a touch of “gold” & “gourmet” nuance. “Dorée” means “golden” in French.
Note: Unfortunately, MayoDorée is not “gluten-free” or “soy-free” per se, but it is made without gluten or soy.
★ PRODUCT NAME: MayoDorée
★ WEBSITE: www.maydoree.com
★ ABOUT: The original MayoDorée was launched in 1980 as the very first cholesterol-free mayonnaise dressing ever developed in Japan. Its straightforward catch was: “It’s made without eggs.” The difficult part was how to bring out the great taste of mayonnaise without using eggs. Since its launching in Japan, it has joined the likes of “long-seller, best-seller” foods. And our endeavor directs us quite naturally, this time, to the United States. They are keen to provide the great taste and value of MayoDorée to the Americans; for those in need of these types of food (vegetarians, those concerned about their cholesterol level, those who do not like eggs but loves the taste of mayo, etc.), but also for anyone who might appreciate a great mayo for tasty potato salads or California rolls.
★ INGREDIENTS: Canola Oil, Water, Suger, Distilled Vinegar, Salt, Modified Food Starch, Yeast Extract, Xanthan Gum, Vegetable Color (carrot extract), Natural Flavors, Tocopherol
★ MY VERDICT: WOW to that! This tastes and feels like almost a real Japanese mayonnaise, plus it is thick and shiny, which is supposed to look like that! MayoDorée provides a rich, creamy dairy-free base for dips and sauces. If you add a bit of sugar, you will have an almost veganized Kewpie for your sushi roll toppings and Japanese potato salads.
