Who knew mayo could be exciting?
These #NewFoodFinds are happy news for those managing an egg allergy and/or soy allergy.
Mayonnaise is one of those food products that you might not think much about – until you need to avoid egg or soy. The good news is, Just Mayo and Follow Your Heart have new options in their allergy-friendly mayo lines. These options are portable just like their regular cousins. That makes them a great choice to take along on summertime BBQs and picnics
