Primal Kitchen Mayo - Anyone Tried It?

Has anyone tried the Primal Kitchen mayo? It's the only jarred mayo I've seen that is compliant (avocado oil, organic cage-free eggs, organic egg yolks, organic vinegar, sea salt, rosemary extract). But at almost $10 for 12 oz, I'd like to know that it isn't awful.

Thanks for any input.

I have not tried it. I am sad that it exists because too many people will never learn to make mayo themselves if they can buy some, even at $10 per jar. I was afraid to try making mayo when I got started. I assumed it required technique and skill. However, out of desperation and with coaxing from Melissa Joulwan, I finally tried to make it and it was amazingly easy. And now that I use an immersion blender instead of a food processor, it is even easier.

Same as Tom, here. Also, the "rosemary extract" kind of bugs me. It's a lab produced preservative, which might be fine and all but the name makes it sound like your grandma put a squeeze of rosemary in...I'm a much bigger fan of calling things what they are if you know what I mean?

 

Learn how to make mayo. You will not regret it.

I already do make my own mayo. My husband and I are on our second Whole 30. I was just curious to keep it for "in a pinch." The Rosemary extract was curious to me as well as often extracts are produced with alcohol - a no no.

Just FYI too, Tom and Mary, it says "Whole30" approved with the Whole30 logo on the website. I assumed that meant it had been "officially" approved. Maybe this needs to be brought to someone's attention.

All the best...

It is approved. That's not a mistake. You can see all the Whole30 Approved items here. It would be fine to have it (I haven't tried it myself, so can't tell you if it's good or not). Tessemae's also makes a compliant mayo, I think -- I haven't tried it either, and don't know how the prices compare.

 

I think any of the moderators here would encourage people to make their own mayo, but if you find one with all compliant ingredients, even other brands than these two, that would be fine to have.

Definitely if it's compliant, keep it for in a pinch but I sincerely doubt you'll ever have a pinch... I came back from a long trip recently and stopped at a grocery store... couldn't think of what I wanted but knew if I got a chicken, then I could do chicken salad... no mayo at home but with the pantry staples that make up mayo, it's so easy!! I remember standing in the grocery store thinking how much easier my life was now that I knew how to make stuff like that!! Save your pennies... $10 for a tiny jar is too much to keep for a pinch in my opinion... :)

I like it. I've made my own mayo but being a single person, it always seems to go off before I get through a batch. I feel safer using the Primal Kitchen over a longer time period.

It's not quite as spendy when ordered from Thrive Market, but with that being membership based you have to buy enough other stuff to make it worthwhile. :)
