According to the ingredients and allergens of all 5 of these vegan mayos, Martinnaise is the healthiest option out of the 5.
Martinnaise offers various vegan flavours, including:
> Gourmet creamy
> 1000 Island
My personal best out of all the flavours is the Original. The peri-peri is also very nice.

Next on the list is a tangy mayo from Woolworths.
They have two options when it comes to vegan mayo- thick and creamy or the sweet and tangy. I personally prefer the sweet and tangy flavour.
Woolworths makes use of canola oil as their base ingredient.

This deliciously creamy, organic vegan mayonnaise is made using sunflower oil as its base ingredient.

It was a very tough choice between 2nd and 1st place, but after a few licks of my teaspoon, I have decided to place the Hellmann’s vegan mayo in 2nd place.
This vegan mayo is so super dooper creamy and the taste is really spectacular!
“Slap” a “blob” on your favourite vegan burger or sandwich- it’s so good!

Coming in at number 1 on this list of my top 5 vegan mayos is the B-Well Thick & Creamy.
I actually tasted this mayo before I decided to change to the vegan lifestyle and I have been using it ever since.
The taste- according to me- is even better than “normal” mayo.
B-Well offers 4 vegan options:
1) Thick and Creamy
2) Original Tangy
3) Olive and Canoa
4) Reduced Oil
Thick and Creamy is my all-time fave!
