Yes Mayo is fine if your not trying to cut. I prefer the light kind tho, but thats just me.

more sugar in the light kind to lower fat ratios though. guess it depends on which macros you are trying to cut.....

Ok, quoting the label of "Kraft" fat free mayo.
fat 0
sodium 120
carbs 2
sugars 1
protein 0

water, modified food starch, vinegar, high fructose corn syrupsoybean oil, contains less than 2% of salt, natural flavor(contains egg yolks) cellulose gell, artificial color, cream, with potassium sorbate and calcium disodium as preservatives, xanthum gum, mustard flour, lactic acid, cellulose gum, phosphoric acid, vitamin E acitate, lemom juice concentrate, dried garlick, dried onions, philly....(something, the label is torn) yellow 6, betacarotene, blue 1 *trivial source of fat and cholesterol

This is exactly what the label says. I haven't done any in depth research as to what all this crap is....so maybe it is all slowly killing me:) maybe it's not even mayo:(

wow. that's a frankenstein food if i ever saw one. how does it have 2 grams carbs if of the first 5 ingredients, 2 are sugars. why is there high-fructose corn syrup in your mayo?

i had to go check my jar.......my ingredients are as follows:

Hains Canola Mayo:
serving size 1tbsp
cals: 100
Total Fat: 11g
sat fat: 1g
polyunsat: 3g
monounsat: 6g
sodium: 100mg
carbs: 0
protein: 0

Ingrdients: expeller pressed canola oil, whole eggs, grain vinegar, water, egg yolks, sea salt, dehydrated cane juice, spice, lemon juice concentrate, honey, d-alpha-tocopherol acetate (vit E), rosemary extractives, natural flavor, paprica extractives (for color).

my question is....why is natural flavor listed as an ingredient??
