Hi, Carla, and hugs on the frustration. Way to go on carefully reading the label!

You may be on mobile and can't see the original date of this blog -- but it was in 2015. Just Mayo reformulated later on to add soy.

I believe there is a soy-free mayo by Vegenaise. I'm not sure of the facility info,  but no soy ingredients are listed in the soy-free variety. Look for the light green lid. I'm not sure of the rest of your allergy "avoids," so it may or may not be safe for your family.

As always, double-check by calling the manufacturer because "may contains" or "shared equipment/facilities" would be voluntary labels. 


The Just Mayo label warns “May contain soy.”  In my experience, this means that there is soy hidden in there somewhere. As in the Helman’s Canola Mayo which actually does have soy in it which is included under “natural flavors” on the label, it may be hidden under the “fruit and vegetable juice” in the label. So the search for Soy Free Mayo continues. Soy is in everything. When I was a child, no one ever heard of soy except in sauce or tofu in a Chinese restaurant. It is in everything for 2 reasons: $ it is cheaper & the soy industry pushed it back in the early 1960s because it is a relatively worry free crop for farmers. Most pests won’t bother it. But it is processed in very toxic ways, even some of the organic soy is processed this way.

Dh says he likes it better than vegenaise. I think it's more savory tasting - vegenaise is more sweet. I also discovered this is the company that appeared on an episode of Bizarre Eats. Still can't find the travel packets though - even in lexington walmarts. We'll keep an eye out though. 


DS and I went to our walmart to look for them. We found Just Mayo - but only in the regular packaging, not the little travel packets. It was on the bottom shelf with the other mayos. Shelf stable until opened.


The price is about 1/2 of Vegenaise so we bought one. DS likes it. DH and I have not tried it yet. I'm very excited for an egg free mayo I can purchase locally (nearest whole foods is 45min away) AND is half the cost. So we'll be keeping an eye out for the travel packets. I'll also be checking other walmarts to see if they have stocked them yet.  


do the just mayo packets require refrigeration?  If not, this could be a very handy thing to be able to carry.  I can see many uses.  

- tuna salad on the go

-honey mustard dipping sauce.  - packets of honey and mustard needed too.

-just having mayo on a sandwich...  yum!
