5) Martinnaise

Coming in at number 5 on this list of the top 5 vegan mayos is Martinnaise. Martinnaise was one of the first vegan mayos that I tried after I decided to choose the vegan lifestyle.

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:

> Original

> Gourmet creamy

> 1000 Island

> Garlic

> Peri-Peri

> Smokehouse

My personal best out of all the flavours is the Original. The peri-peri is also very nice.

4) Woolworths

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.

3) Mr. Organic

Third place goes to a brand of mayonnaise that is produced in Italy- Mr. Organic.

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

Mr. Organic is gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free and wheat-free.


I can not find anywhere that sells Mr. Organic online (except amazon) but most Super Spar outlets will stock it- which is where I have bought it on numerous occasions.

2) Hellmann’s

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!

1) B-Well

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!
