which oils for making mayonnaise

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created October 27, 2012 at 8:06 PM

So I am thinking avocado oil, but many recommend macadamia, I would love to use a nut oil, but would that have phytic acid in the oil since the nuts have them. And coconut oil and lard I think would turn to cement when refrigerated. Also coconut oil has antibacterial properties, would that mess up my mayo since I lacto-ferment it for four hours.

sounds delicious but at 13$ for about a pint in whole foods kind of expensive but I might just have to shell out some cash

see I tried extra virgin cold pressed organic olive oil still to peppery from reading around I read that using a food processor could be my mistake as it shears the oil droplets releasing the bitterness that is usually not picked up by our taste buds however i have more concern over the peppery taste. I ordered an immersion blender to see if that would help whisking by hand not really an option as it seems EOV is the hardest to emulsify plus my emusification always breaks even though I literally add drop by drop

It's pretty notorious for being cut with lots of crap oil, so needs to be from a good source..

Robert, how much mayonnaise are you eating? ;) You can get high oleic sunflower oil, which is very similar to olive oil in fatty acid profile, if not slightly lower in PUFAs than olive oil (PUFAs aren't that bad though).

Well, the avocado oil mayonnaise was definitely palatable, just not my favorite and too expensive to make it worth it. Macadamia nut and Walnut would have the same problem with being rather on the expensive side. I can't speak for macadamia nut oil, but walnut oil carries quite a flavor wallop for me. I usually just put the smallest dab on my salads.

It also still gives you the antioxidants of the olive oil, plus the MCTs and anti-viral properties of the coconut oil.

The olive oil prevents that from happening. Coconut oil only makes it hard, olive oil only is too strong of a flavor. Half of each works great for me.

Phytic acid won't be in oil. Chemically, phytates are water-soluble polar compounds and simply won't be dissolved in isolated fats. Not a concern.

Light tasting olive oil is a great base that gives me the consistency I am looking for. It is virtually flavorless so you can add anything you want to alter the flavor to your liking (other fats, spices, vinegar, etc)

If you can't find it in the supermarket, go to Amazon and search for "light tasting olive oil". You can find it easily and in bulk. Much cheaper than nut oils and coconut oil as well.

I use sunflower oil for my mayo, it makes a light fluffy mayo without a lot of the oily taste. I once tried using fish oil as an experiment and it was horrifyingly bad.

You are correct that recipes that are mostly coconut oil turn to butter in the refrigerator. I make my commercial mayonnaise, Payo, with macadamia, coconut, and olive oil. You can pre-order a jar to try it on Kickstarter:

I use avocado oil, toasted almond oil (AMAZING!!!), or olive oil (not EVOO). My favorite is the toasted almond oil, but the olive oil is more affordable.
