ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Building on its 100-year legacy of blue ribbon taste and real, quality ingredients, Hellmann's – America's favorite mayonnaise brand –announced today it received Vegan Certification from Vegan Action for its eggless dressing and sandwich spread and will be adding "vegan" to its name. Vegan Action is a national non-profit organization dedicated to educating people on a vegan lifestyle and helping identify vegan products.

The new labeling will be rolling out nationwide to help make it even clearer for families in search of eggless products. Made with carefully chosen and blended ingredients, Hellmann's Vegan is eggless, cholesterol free* and made with non-GMO sourced ingredients.

"Our fans depend on us to deliver delicious tasting choices that stand up to their families' high taste standards and changing dietary preferences," said Russel Lilly, Marketing Director at Hellmann's. "We pride ourselves on always bringing out the best and are proud to be donning the Certified Vegan logo as a way to reinforce this commitment."

The product will be available at grocery stores nationwide throughout the U.S and Canada.
