Low Amine Mayonnaise Substitute

Mayonnaise is tricky because not only does it have combinations of lemon, vinegar, wine, and chemicals in it, it also has been sitting on a shelf for who knows how long, quietly developing amines. On a low amine diet, mass-produced mayonnaise is definitely out. That doesn’t mean you can’t make a low amine mayonnaise yourself though. Low amine mayonnaise is very easy to make and takes relatively few ingredients. It will keep in your fridge for up to one week.

Yield: 1 1/4 C low amine mayonnaise

1 egg yolk (beware salmonella, food poisoning, etc.)

1/2 teaspoon fine salt

1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

1/4 tsp sugar

2 Tbsp water

3/4 tsp ascorbic acid (just short of 3/4 tsp)

1 cup safflower oil or corn oil

  • In a ramekin, mix ascorbic acid and water together. Stir until dissolved.
  • Add dry ingredients and egg yolk together in a glass bowl. Whisk together.
  • Whisk half the water/ascorbic mix in with the egg yolk mixture.
  • Start vigorously whisking and add half of the oil in just a few drops at a time. Whisk briskly and keep adding oil. You’ll notice the liquid start to thicken up, then thin out again.
  • Once your mixture has thickened and thinned again, add the rest of the water/ascorbic mix.
  • Continue whisking (a little less briskly) and add the rest of the oil in a thin, consistent stream until it’s all mixed in.
  • Leave on the counter for one or two hours, then refrigerate.
