Hi - If it's fat free it should be okay. Where on the list of ingredients does it list canola oil? It is odd that there would be oil in there but it's still fat free.

Also check for dairy, and watch out for that. But I have no problems at all with fat free Kraft mayo.

Best,
Heather

It's listed as the third ingredient. Fat free Kraft isn't sold here.

Well, as long as it says fat free it should be fine. It still seems weird, though. Does it give a calorie breakdown and the number of calories from fat?

I don't know if I'm telling you what you already know, but Sainsbury's do a good range of 'free from' dairy range, including soft cheese, ice cream and even soya mozzarella cheese slices. I find these taste better than the cheese spreads from the health shop.

It actually says 0% of calories from fat. I agree that it is odd that oil is in it and it's fat free still. I hope the company isn't telling a lie.

The regulations for labeling something fat free don't actually require it to contain zero fat - it just has to be a trace amount (I believe less than 1 gram per serving or some such). It should be safe for IBS.

I have a recipe for mayo for those who have a hard time eating mayo. This recipe comes from one of my books called Detecting Hidden Food Allergies. I have never tried it, because I can not eat nuts, but the recipe sounds good to me.

Cashew no egg mayo

1/2 Cup raw cahews or other nuts.
3/4 Cup water
1-2 Tbls. lemon juice
2 Tbls. oil
1 Tbls. arrowroot or kuzu starch
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. salt, or to taste
dash of cayenne, optional

Grind the nuts to a fine powder in a blender. Add the water and blend 1 minute. Add the lemon juice, oil, starch, mustard, salt and cayenne.
Blend until very smooth, stopping twice to scrape the bottom. Pour into a saucepan. Stirring or whisking constantly over medium heat, bring to a boil and simmer 2-3 minutes until it's thick.
Allow to cool 10 minutes, then stir in lemon juice and correct the seasoning to your taste.
Transfer to glass jar and store up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. If you wish, top your salad with a few cashews or whatever nuts you made the dressing with.
