I think most people here would say that for paleo, *almost* is pretty damn good.

To be fair, eating a 3oz serving of beef steak is going to jack up your insulin more than a serving of that fake-mayo, which effectively has 0g of sugar per serving. I'm no fan of fake-mayo, but let's call a spade a spade, shall we?

Brown rice syrup often is made with both rice and barley. Barley has gluten which is a big huge no go around here.

Here's my rule of thumb for mayo: if it doesn't require refrigeration (not counting if it's meant to be used immediately after making it) then it's not mayo.

A good mayo should only have oil, egg, and spices. If it's sitting on a shelf in a grocery store with more than 5 ingredients or so, then it's a science experiment that best be left alone.

Having said all that -- and I applaud you for often making it yourself -- I've never found an acceptable brand of "mayo like spread" that didn't either use bad oils or simply had too many chemical enhancers.

This brand of soy-free veganaise seems to have these ingredients:

Ingredients: (vegan, gluten free, dairy free) Expeller-Pressed Hi-Oleic Safflower Oil, Filtered Water, Brown Rice Syrup, Apple Cider Vinegar, Pea Protein, Sea Salt, Mustard Flour, Lemon Juice Concentrate.

I'm not a fan of knowingly/purposefully eating safflower oil (high oleic or not), and brown rice syrup isn't great for you either (but it's also not going to kill you). Peas are legumes but are low-to-no lectin -- but in this case of "pea protein", I'd be more skeptical of the processing the peas went to become concentrated protein.

Honestly, I suggest to just keep making it yourself. :-) Make a little bit at a time, keep it refrigerated, and unless you are mainlining the stuff, I can't see this being more than a once-a-week chore.

I do not have an immersion blender, so mayo is often hit or miss. I'm sick of crappy broken mayos, I just stick to store bought stuff. If you like the idea of soy-free vegannaise, go for it.

Honestly, I no longer stress out over my condiments. I don't eat that much that it affects my health. If you make recipes that call for mayo, then you should make your own. It's easy - all you need is a blender - and it lasts way longer than what the recipe says it will. I've have homemade mayo last more than a month in the refrigerator!

Well Kudos to Follow Your Heart for trying but almost most only counts for Horseshoes and hand grenades. The first ingredient is High-Oleic Safflower Oil which is not Paleo. And, the brown rice syrup is likely to jack up your insulin response among other things.

My vote: Keep on making it yourself. Just curious, are you occasionally making sandwiches? How about substituting guacamole or just some avocado slices?
