I recently had an opportunity to try the new mayonnaise from Primal Kitchen, an enterprise of Mark Sisson from Mark’s Daily Apple. His idea was to market a premium mayo suitable for those on paleo/primal diets, using a quality of ingredients previously only dreamed about: avocado oil, organic cage-free eggs, organic egg yolks, organic vinegar (from non-GMO beets), sea salt, and rosemary extract.
Making your own paleo mayo isn’t difficult, but the option to purchase would be convenient. Trouble is, even the “made with olive oil” products I’ve found in stores are still mostly soy or canola! Often, they also contain sugar, stabilizers, and other junk. As a paleo blogger I was able to obtain an advance jar of Primal Kitchen Mayo before it was available for purchase, and I’m happy to report it exceeded my expectations!
The attractive glass jar contains mayo with a superb silky texture, amazing tangy taste, and none of the worries about poor fat choices or unwanted ingredients. This is easily the best mayonnaise I’ve ever tried, and it worked well both on lettuce wraps and in a simple tuna salad. It’s not cheap, but you really get what you pay for. Instead of poison, it’s a delicious, nutrient-dense food made the way you would if you had the time.
I believe it’s currently only available direct from Primal Kitchen or Thrive Market, though I see there’s a wholesale inquiry tab on the PK web site, and I’m hoping that means it will soon begin making appearances in local grocery stores and co-ops.
