Same mayo but more humane. Photo
|Hellmann’s is using 100% certified cage-free eggs in its Hellmann’s Light Mayonnaise product in North America. (The brand is known as Best Foods west of the Rockies).
With more people attuned to what’s in their food and where it comes from, as well as the humane treatment of animals, certified cage-free eggs ensure that the animals are treated well.
The eggs are American Humane Certified, a certification program administered by the American Humane Association (AHA), the leading certifier of cage-free eggs in the U.S.
Hellman’s Light Mayonnaise is the first major mayonnaise brand to use 100% cage-free eggs. The product will be using approximately 3.5 million pounds of eggs per year.
Hellmann’s plans to incorporate cage-free eggs into its other products over time, including Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise. There just aren’t that many cage-free eggs in the U.S. to do it today!
|Mayonnaise is made from simple ingredients: homemade mayo uses only vinegar, oil (typically olive oil) and eggs, plus seasonings like salt and lemon juice. Mass-marketed mayos typically use soybean oil as well as thickeners and stabilizers (modified corn starch, xanthan gum, sorbic acid and other preservatives, colerants and sugar—read the label). Hellmann’s Light has half the fat and calories of Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise.
