For many years, one of the most- utilized food products in my refrigerator, is and has been Hellmann’s (R) Mayonnaise. This familiar and dependable product is also a staple in the refrigerators of countless American homes. The best- selling mayonnaise in the United States, Hellmann’s (R) Mayonnaise has been the brand of choice for generations of American consumers. Interestingly, Hellmann’s (R) Mayonnaise is not sold west of the Rocky Mountains, only in areas east of the mountain range. Instead, in the section of the United States west of the Rocky Mountains, hungry consumers have come to rely upon delicious, high- quality Best Foods (R) Mayonnaise. Manufactured in the same plant, these two brands of mayonnaise are essentially the same product, just packaged under two different names.
One of the main reasons that I prefer to use Hellmann’s (R) Mayonnaise in a wide variety of dishes is the trust, or food safety fator. I have complete faith and assurance in the high quality standards that are rigorously maintained by Hellmann’s (R) and Best Foods (R). Contrary to what many un- informed consumers have been led to believe, mayonnaise in and of itself is not a product that typically presents food safety issues. Because some of the primary ingredients in mayonnaise include lemon juice, salt and vinegar, these ingredients are known to prevent and slow the growth of bacteria. Quite often, it is the other food items that mayonnaise is combined with, that create bacterial growth. When using Hellmann’s (R) or Best Foods (R) Mayonnaise, consumers can rest assured that they are using some of the highest- quality jarred food products available in modern American supermarkets.
Just some of the dishes that I regularly utilize Hellmann’s (R) Mayonnaise in are ; Potato Salad, with chopped onions, green peppers, egg, vinegar, sweetener and mustard, Egg Salad, with finely chopped celery and a tiny bit of minced onion, or sometimes, I prepare Egg Salad using only eggs, Hellmann’s (R) Mayonnaise and salt and pepper, wherein the delightful flavor of the mayonnaise really shines. Ham Salad, with Hellmann’s Mayonnaise, mustard and pickle relish and Pasta Salads, with Hellmann’s (R) Mayonnaise, vinegar, sweetener, fresh chopped vegetables and a variety of seasonings fairly sing- out with flavor. When it comes to topping sandwiches, nothing beats the flavor of Hellmann’s (R) or Best Foods (R) Mayonnaise. Chicken, roast beef, turkey and ham sandwiches all reach new heights of flavor when they are topped with these mayonnaise products. Other great uses for Hellmann’s (R) and Best Foods (R) mayonnaise include using as a spread over fresh fish and meats when grilling and in baking. Believe it or not, many intrepid cooks like to add these mayonnaise products to their chocolate cake recipes. The addition of mayonnaise allows many baked goods to become lighter and fluffier.
Many different types and styles of mayonnaise are offered by Hellmann’s (R) and Best Foods (R). Besides their “Real” mayonnaise products, they also feature Light Mayonnaise, Mayonnaise Dressing with Extra Virgin olive oil, Canola Cholesterol Free Mayonnaise, Low- Fat Mayonnaise Dressing, Mayonesa con Jugo de Limon (mayonnaise with lime juice) and Hellmann’s (R) Dijonnaise (TM) ( mayonnaise blended with Dijon mustard). Additionally, Hellmann’s (R) and Best Foods (R) offer such items as Deli Mustard, Honey Mustard, Tartar Sauce and Sandwich Spread. All Hellmann’s (R) Mayonnaise products are gluten- free, contain 0 grams of trans fat per serving and are naturally rich in Omega 3’s. For consumers seeking high- quality, delicious mayonnaise products, this food writer heartily recommends all of the Hellmann’s (R) and Best Foods (R) varieties of mayonnaise.
