I have always used the Hellmann's regular mayo. I love it. But now, I would like to start eating a bit more healthy, and I see at the grocery store this morning that there is this Hellmann's mayo that is made with Canola oil, making it 0 cholesterol. Seems to me it should taste about the same as the regular, but hey, it's healthier!
Has anybody out there ever tried this canola-version? Is it just as great?
I don't think I'll get many answers to this, but I'm fishing for one anyway
Thanks, folks! Have a great day

That is the mayo that I use. Of course I use it because I have an allergy to soybeans and so far it's the only one I found at the local stores here that doesn't have soybean oil.

I think it tastes just as good, if not better than the regular one. It was also nice because when we were lowering my husband's cholesterol he didn't have to cut out his mayo on his sandwiches for work.

I haven't used Hellman's but I do like Cains regular. I just saw a hint that if you mix regular "Greek" style plain yogurt with tuna it saves alot of fat and calories and it certainly is the consistency of mayo.

Here's something you might want to try. This particular version doesn't use any solvent-based oils, if that's what you are concerned with. Tastes very much like Hellman's, I think.

I have not tried it but am up to trying new things. If I come across a coupon for it I may just do that!

Me, too! Although Cain's Light, (I think) is soy-free. I used to use that before Hellman's canola mayo came out. Our friends have begun to use Hellman's canola mayo as well because of me, so my soy allergy is helping lower their cholesterol, too.

Virgode, I've also heard canola oil has it's health issues. It's genetically modified. Then again, so is American soybeans, so anyone buying mayo is going to be getting genetically modified foods anyway.

I am very happy to get all these great replies !
Next trip to the market I will get a better mayo! Probably the canola Hellmann's, but I'll check the Cain's as well.....great tip about the greek yogurt in the tuna! Makes sense to me.....I don't want to go off topic but I just discovered tuna that I like as well "Starkist Gourmet Choice Tuna Fillet, in Olive Oil"! Gotta have mayo...but what if I can find Greek Yogurt? I wonder if they sell that in my local Publix?
Thanks everyone - you're the greatest!

My husband is a mayo lover and knew right away when I used the Canola Hellmans rather than the regular .
I had really thought there wouldn't be much difference but there was.
I mixed half jar of each to use it up.
