Don't know if Dollar Tree Canada has it, but I found Calder’s Gourmet Real Mayonnaise at the stores in Texas, and it doesn't have sugar listed.

South easter US to be exact. Duke's is not available in the north east. Not sure about the mid west or the west.

It is important to eliminate all ADDED sugar from the diet when beginning a new way of eating low carb. Those foods that naturally contain sugar, are those which you should be careful with, and be sure not to eat too much of during the initial phase.

Good luck to you!

I've been trying to find mayonnaise without canola oil for a long time with no luck - I've started to make my own. It's pretty easy, just an egg, an cup of olive oil, and a bit of vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper in the blender.

I think you've made a slight mistake in the calculation. I think the 110 mg listed is just for the sodium portion of the salt molecule (NaCl). That means there is more than just 110 mg of salt added. Now the molecular weights of the constituent atoms are (in atomic units):

Sodium: 23 u
Chrlorine: 35.5 u

So if there is 110 mg of sodium, then there is 110*(35.5 + 23)/23 = 280 mg of salt.

And if sugar is listed after salt in the ingredients you can take the amount of sodium listed and multiply by (35.5 + 23)/23 = 2.5 to get an upper bound on the amount of sugar added.

The rule of thumb would be to take the sodium amount and multiply by 2.5.

This works for any ingredient listed after salt.

I have not been able to find any brand of mayonnaise here in Canada that does not add sugar and/or starch.

I've been using Hellman's Olive Oil Mayo (which is actually mostly Canola) lately, which is pretty good (except for the added carbs).

I wonder what a heavier fat, such as coconut, tallow, etc., would taste / what the texture would be...

My own take is that the amount of sugar in mayo is so minimal I wouldn't worry about. What I *do* worry about is that all commercial mayos I've ever seen use primarily nasty oils like soybean and/or canola - so I don't even BUY commericial mayo anymore (and I used to be sort of a mayo addict). Now if I need or want mayo I make my own using light olive oil.

I'm sticking with storebought because I don't even like mayo that much, and homemade is terrible to me, not to mention wasteful. Even a small batch just made with one egg yolk, I'd never use even half the recipe before I wouldn't trust its safety.

I did like the bacon mayo (google 'bacon mayo paleo'), but again, it makes too much. As much as I love bacon, I don't love bacon mayo put on everything!

I tried making mayo out of non-hydrogenated lard. Not impressive, though someone who's more seasoned at mayo-making might get better results.

I don't think mayo really works with any oil that's not normally liquid at room temperature unless you're making small amounts. I make my own with walnut oil and keep it in my fridge for weeks, never had an issue.

I am a newbie, but I know there are a TON of recipes on line for making your own. It takes about 3 minutes. All you need is a 25 dollar emersion blender (great for other thigns) some olive oil, salt, lemon juice and garlic powder or fresh garlic if you want. It literally takes 3 minutes and is DELICIOUS.

Bobiam I mean no disrespect, but in my two years of doing research on diets there is a HUGE difference between naturally occuring sugars in foods (such as fruit, that has its own fiber delivery system which slows the absorbtion of sugar into the body) and CANE sugar, which is added to almost all packaged foods very detrimental to health in general.

Edited to add you can make mayo in 5 minutes with fresh ingredients in your blender. This is the time it would take to read some labels at a store LOL.
