13 Of The Best Vegan Mayo Brands You Can Buy

We may receive a commission on purchases made from links.

Mayonnaise is not vegan-friendly. In the United States, The FDA requires that the condiment must contain eggs to be legally called mayonnaise. Where does that leave vegan mayo? (Often with a very creative or long brand name.) Plant-based mayo is called "dressing" as a workaround. While not technically dairy, mayo gets associated with dairy products. Recently, dairy-free alternative products have become a rapidly growing industry in the U.S. In 2022, the milk-free market was worth $3.1 billion. With most of Gen Z desiring plant-based diets, this number will likely grow.

But the thing we care about most is: Is it tasty to eat? Fortunately, the answer to that is a resounding yes. Many brands of vegan mayonnaise are doing it right. They run the gamut of flavors, pricing, and nutritional profiles. To help you find the right vegan mayo for you and your budget, we've rounded up 13 of the best brands you can buy!

1. Spectrum Organic Eggless Vegan Light Canola Mayo

Spectrum Organic produces a light canola oil mayonnaise available in a glass jar and a plastic squeeze bottle. This brand specializes in organic and non-GMO vegetable oils and makes vinegar, mayo, and nutrition supplements. While most of their products are vegan, they do carry egg-based mayonnaise and fish oil.

The brand's light vegan mayonnaise contains no hydrogenated fats and only 35 calories and 3.5 grams of fat per tablespoon — about a third of the content of regular mayo. As a point of pride, Spectrum touts the fact that they use no artificial preservatives. As an added bonus, this vegan mayo is kosher and gluten-free.

How does it taste? Flavorings include onion powder, rosemary, mustard oil, turmeric, and paprika. A Kroger consumer gave it five stars, stating, "This is a great product at a reasonable price. I buy several jars at a time." Another, who gave it three stars, called it "not bad...I mainly like the affordability compared to vegenaise and it doesn't have to be purchased refrigerated."

2. Follow Your Heart Vegenaise

In the 1970s, the Follow Your Heart company invented vegenaise when it was still a food bar. When it turned out that their then-vegan food bar was using mayo made with eggs, they crafted an eggless condiment. Since their discovery, the company has grown into a store, a restaurant, and a vegan dairy brand. Besides being a zero-waste-certified business, its products are vegan and kosher-certified, and its mayo offerings are gluten-free.

Follow Your Heart carries many varieties of vegenaise, including their original mixture. Soy-free types include chipotle, avocado oil, and soy-free. Their products don't need to be refrigerated at all times. What do people say about them? Well, one Amazon customer gave the soy-free version a five out of five-star rating, saying, "FINALLY! A good-for-you mayo that doesn't taste like motor oil..." Others believe that the brand's vegenaise doesn't have the same quality it used to have, stating that the overall quality has decreased over time.

3. Sir Kensington's Vegan Mayos

While not a plant-based company, Sir Kensington's is a certified B-Corporation, proudly states on its website that the teams aren't "just doing this to make a living." Among its core company values, Sir Kensington cites sustainable packaging and ingredient sourcing as vital to its work. However, it is worth noting that while the company is independently run, Unilever owns the brand. 

Sir Kensington's produces four vegan mayo varieties: They are all gluten-free, keto-certified, kosher, and soy-free. Before being opened, the products are shelf-stable and can reside in your pantry. The brand uses aquafaba as its main egg replacement. Consumers can choose from four varieties: classic vegan mayo, chipotle vegan mayo, special sauce vegan mayo, and avocado vegan mayo. By far, the classic vegan is the least popular, with fans clamoring for the brand to bring back its original fabanaise concoction for its superior taste. The special sauce appears to be the most popular, with some likening it to In-N-Out's secret sauce. Out of more than 2,6000 reviews, Sir Kensington's Vegan Mayos have 4.3 out of 5 stars on Amazon.

4. Chosen Foods Avocado Oil Vegan Mayo

Chosen Foods — like many of us — is all about the avocado. The company sells avocado oil, cooking spray, and, of course, mayos. Only one of its mayos is vegan, but it is an excellent choice for those sensitive to soy or canola oils. Like others on this list, their vegan mayo is also gluten-free and non-GMO certified. That said, it's a little spendier than others on this list, coming in at $19.99 for 12 ounces on the company's website.

This vegan avocado oil mayo comes in a glass jar. Instead of soy, this mayo contains aquafaba, faba bean protein powder, and sunflower lecithin. Chosen Foods warns that its products tend to separate during freezing cold weather. It says this is only an aesthetic issue but recommends waiting till the weather warms up to order its products. However, one reviewer has a hack for this problem: If your mayo arrives too liquidy or separated, you can fix it by using a blender to whip the liquid into a consolidated consistency. 

5. Best Foods/Hellmann's Vegan Dressing and Spread

Hellman's is another Unilever brand. Since 2016, the company has been making vegan mayo. While not a vegan brand, Hellman's, known as Best Foods in many places, has made efforts toward sustainability by using its cage-free eggs in its U.S. mayo. While the vegan mayo jar is 100% recycled and recyclable, the mayo contains a non-identified bio-engineered ingredient. This "Vegan Carefully Crafted Dressing" is soy-free and certified kosher. One tablespoon of the mayo has 8 grams of fat and 70 calories, making it one of this list's lower-fat and lower-calorie options.

Hellman's claims that its vegan mayo tastes the same as regular, and the brand might be on to something. Out of more than 3,100 ratings on Amazon, this mayo has a 4.6 out of 5 ratings, with user jbdean saying, "I honestly try to support vegan-only companies but this is the best vegan mayo I've tried and the price is half of what the vegan only companies have out there."

6. Wicked Kitchen Vegan Mayos

Wicked Kitchen is a plant-based company aiming to make "plant-based food for meat-eaters and vegans alike." You can find Wicked Kitchen's vegan Garlic Mayo with Caramelized and Bac-No-Naise Vegan Mayo in many stores, including Kroger and Sprouts. The mayo is also available online at the company's website and on Amazon. People living in the U.K., Finland, and Thailand will have better odds of finding this company's products in grocery stores. 

Unlike other vegan mayos on this list, Wicked Kitchen uses potato starch and rapeseed oil. Both flavors are gluten, GMO-free, nut-free, and soy-free. The bacon-flavored mayo comes in at 90 calories and 10 grams of fat per tablespoon. In comparison, the garlic flavor comes in at 80 calories and 9 grams per tablespoon.

On Amazon, Wicked Kitchen's mayos have 4.0 out of 5 stars. However, one reviewer noted that despite its superior taste, the price point is too high for how little product is in the bottle. Those on a tighter budget might want to look elsewhere for a vegan mayo fix.

7. Good & Gather Vegan Dressing

Target's Good & Gather brand has been around since 2019. According to a brand press release from that year, Good & Gather products don't use artificial flavors, synthetic colors, sweeteners, or high fructose corn syrup. The brand markets its products for families with little time to cook meals at home. Technically, this vegan mayo is a vegan dressing. The brand describes it this way: "Vegan dressing offers creamy texture with mild lemon and mustard notes." Like others on this list, this vegan dressing is certified kosher, and it doesn't contain soy, gluten, or nuts.

People love this mayo. On Target's website, 71% of reviewers recommend it. One reviewer, kat, called it "The best vegan mayo!! It's similar to the discontinued Just Mayo. Love it." Others, like Ty, compared it to Miracle Whip, saying, "​​Really great texture! The taste is comparable to [the] miracle whip brand. A great alternative to animal products and a new favorite in my house."

8. O'dang Vegan Mayos

O'dang is all about chickpeas. While not a plant-based brand, it specializes in vegetarian condiments. Plus, its mayo is all vegan! The brand's ethos seems centered on health. Its About Page states, "Our plant-based vegan mayonnaise is made with aquafaba and sunflower oil, meaning it's dairy-free, egg-free, and cholesterol-free with no carbs, palm oil, or artificial preservatives." Additionally, the mayos are GMO-free, gluten-free, and soy-free. 

However, it's worth noting that these mayos are not low-fat. Per one tablespoon serving, there are 10 grams of fat — meaning they're pretty much on par with the egg version.

O'dang produces four flavors of its chickpea mayo: original, roasted red pepper, lemon garlic, and cucumber dill. You can purchase the mayo (or salad dressings, of which there are two vegan flavors) in a four-pack on O'dang's website. Otherwise, its products are available in some supermarkets and on Amazon to varying degrees. Reviews on O'dang's website are mostly favorable about the product. However, some customers do complain about the company's poor customer service.

9. Primal Kitchen Vegan Mayo Dip and Spread

As you may have guessed from the name, Primal Kitchen is all about crafting products for paleo diets. While the company eschews dairy, it's not totally vegan. Still, Primal Kitchen does sell many vegan products. On top of that, all of its products are certified gluten-free, kosher, keto-friendly, and use non-GMO ingredients. Also, this brand uses certified cage-free and humane eggs.

Primal Kitchen's vegan mayo is avocado oil-based and contains 11 grams of fat per tablespoon. It gets its texture from potato protein, konjac gum, tamarind gum, and citrus fiber. This product is widely available — CVS, Safeway, Costco, Target, Whole Foods, and several online retailers carry it. As far as pricing goes, it's in the middle of the pack. While nearly 700 reviewers on Amazon give this mayo 4.2 stars out of 5, some like reviewer LuluCoz warn: "Taste is good but this brand's mayo products often are not kept at the proper temperature to prevent separation. The result is curdling once spread on toast. Either stored improperly at the store or during delivery." Primal Kitchen advises freezing the product after purchase and thaw it before use.

10. Mr Organic Egg Free Organic Mayo

This Italian product is a plant-based B corp that prides itself on sustainability and has a zero-tolerance policy for modern slavery. Its egg-free organic mayo is just one of its many products. Mr Organic products are widely available in the United Kingdom. In the U.S., you can purchase their products through Amazon. While Mr Organic touts the product as "air zero air mile," it is unclear whether that includes products purchased from third-party suppliers online. Mr Organic's products are also palm oil free.

Reviews cite the texture of Mr Organic's egg-free mayo as particularly spot on and tasty. However, some wish the jar were a bit bigger for the cost of the product (the jar is about 6.3 ounces). With just over 6 grams of fat per tablespoon, it is one of the lower-fat products on the list. There are also about 60 calories per tablespoon.

11. Kewpie Egg Free Japanese Vegan Mayonnaise Kewpie Mayo Egg Care Allergy Vegan

There are a few versions of Kewpie's egg-free mayo. Some are explicitly marketed as vegan and sold on vegan sites. However, it should be noted that on the Kewpie Singapore site, there is an "egg-free dressing" that the company states is not 100% plant-based. That said, having evaluated the ingredients, it's unclear which ingredients the company is referring to in that statement.

Considering the difference between Kewpie mayo and regular is that Kewpie is "extra-eggy" — as it contains only egg yolks rather than whole eggs — you may wonder if vegan Kewpie could possibly be any good. According to consumers, yes! Many say it tastes exactly the same, but some say the taste is milder than the original Kewpie. Customers' chief complaint is the small size of the package versus its larger price tag. Sadly, it seems that priciness and vegan mayo go hand in hand in many cases.

12. Urban Platter Vegan Mayo

Urban Platter is an Indian brand that offers international shipping on its website. However, it will cost American consumers a pretty penny. The benefit of shopping through its site is that all its flavors are available. (You can always purchase Urban Platter mayo on Amazon, but the flavor options are limited.) Speaking of flavors, Urban Platter has many: Bombay Chutney, Thousand Island, Tandoori, Black Pepper, Black Truffle, Wasabi Chimichurri, Chimichurri Aoili, Gochugang, Peri Peri, Chipotle, and regular. We're salivating! Amazon user Nalini Somaiya agrees, saying, "Taste mindblowing, didn't even realize it's vegan."

By far, Urban Platter's mayos are the lowest in fat on this best-of list. The Chipotle Vegan Mayo, for example, has only about 2.5 grams of fat in a tablespoon and 28 calories. Likely, that's because the first ingredient is water, followed by soybean oil, emulsifiers, and spices. This isn't a product with much nutritional value. But if you want something that packs a punch of flavor without adding much else, this brand is for you!

13. Heinz [Seriously Good] Vegan Mayo

Heinz has been around for a long time — since 1869. Although it is a U.S. brand, its [Seriously] Good Vegan Mayo is an international product. But it wouldn't be on this list if you couldn't get it in the states! You can always order it on Amazon, but if you're craving a more adventurous flavor — like chili or aioli — you'll need to opt for a specialty store like Brands of Germany.

The mayo is made with sunflower or canola (rapeseed) oil — depending on the location and variety. It contains no artificial colors, flavors, or gluten and is kosher. While not a very widely reviewed product on Amazon, two separate reviewers stated it either "tastes the same" or is "better than the normal mayo." So if you're willing to shell out a little bit extra cash for shipping, this is definitely a great option for those who are a bit anxious about dipping their fingers into the vegan mayo waters and its variety of spicy flavors.
