Paleopapa The label says: Maille, Dijon Originale. It's made in France. I live in Spain. It's available in Mercadona supermarkets. Greymouser It has been hard to find a mustard *without* sugar.

I have never seen sugar in mustard - as opposed to always seeing it in ketchup. Is that a European thing?

Agreed. Of all the condiments, mayo benefits the most from being homemade, but it's the most pain-in-the-ass to make homemade of all the condiments, so I just use whatever store-bought.

When I first started eating paleo I was very strict. Over time, I have realized that sometimes it's just easier to use store bought condiments. I use very little so it doesn't impact my health. I do make my own mayo. I try to eat atleast 80% paleo. Works for me :)

Depends on if you are here to feel healthy or if you are here to follow every rule in the books. Most ketchup has sugar so i dont consume it. Others will argue it is a nightshade so if you are aip...probably ought not. Some mayo from the stores are made with oils i tend to avoid but some are made with olive oil which some people here are ok with... And there are recipes all over the net for paleo mayo. I have made mayo before and its easy. Never tried paleo recipes for mayo. I use mustard in moderation. Its made with mustard seed and vinegar and i do consume some vinegar. But as everybody will ask...how do you feel when you add these to your diet? Let that be the guide. Also...there are tons of recipes for lactofermented ketchup amd mustard on the internet...check them out. I plan on trying them as soon as i can get this whole kefir stuff figured out. They would be much better than sugar-laden counterparts...and they have probiotics! Yay!

Commercial mustard is usually fine, commercial mayo is pure evil, ketchup is sort of inbetween.

Mayo is very easy to make. I don't bother separating yolks from whites, just dump two whole eggs (no shells obviously) in a blender, a bit of lemon juice, a but of mustard, turn it on and slowly add olive oil, then dump in a glass container and let it solidify in the fridge. Lasts about a week and tastes very good.

Ketchup is harder. Boil down about two cans of good tomatoes or equivalent, and use an immersion blender to blend them down. In a separate pot, put a tablespoon of whole cloves in a cup of white vinegar and slowly heat to an almost boil. Strain the vinegar into the tomatoes and keep blending until it looks smooth and the consistency of ketchup.

A better thing to do is put a bunch of cloves into a glass jar with vinegar on top - make sure the jar's lid is coated. Let the jar sit for at least a week. Whenever you make ketchup, take some of the liquid out and pour over the tomatoes in addition to about a cup of white vinegar.

You could add some sugar if you want, it will help the texture.

If you want to fool your kids, empty out a bottle of commercial ketchup and refill with your own. They might be able to tell, then again, they might not.

There are far more complicated ways to make these things, but why?

I do, it's fun to make your own. I would avoid the store bought mayo - it's packed with bad oils, check the ingredients list. I think a bit of ketchup and mustard here and there wouldn't hurt though ;)

I do. I simply choose better quality, organic, etc. I don't eat enough mayo to worry about doing homemade.

Don't sweat the small stuff, unless you want to!

It all depends on how strict you want to be and how you react to them. Personally, I don't eat a ton of condiments and I don't have the time or interest in making my own so I just use store bought. I just look for ketchup and bbq sauce that do not have HFCS and try not to stress out about a little bit of sugar. I find mayonaisse to be absolutely disgusting so I don't have a problem avoiding it. Otherwise I would probably make my own or find one that isn't made with vegetable oil.

I use organic ketchup and am fine with it. I use it so rarely, that I could almost say I don't eat it. Most of the time, I will put Campari tomatoes in the Magic Bullet and use the whirled tomatoes instead. I'm pretty much a purist, but I'm also human and opt to grab the quick fix once in a while.

Careful about added sugar and fake dyes (especially in the mustard)
