The concept of using plant based condiments is nothing new, but there are those who are making what used to be a good thing better. Take the example of dumping traditional mayonnaise in favor of plant based Mayo products. Here are some of the reasons why this approach can be advantageous in more ways than one.
Limiting Sources of Cholesterol
While some cholesterol in the diet is essential for everyone, most people consume far more than they need each day. Choosing to use a mayo product made using plant matter makes it easier to still have a tasty spread for sandwiches and other uses without having to see how much cholesterol is included in each serving. While making the substitution won’t cure high levels of bad cholesterol overnight, it will certainly make it easier to get those numbers back into a reasonable range and keep them there.
All the Taste Anyone Could Want
A mayo product made using the right plant based ingredients will have the texture and taste of homemade mayonnaise. What this means is that consumers who have trouble finding mayonnaise that is not too sweet or too tangy are likely to find the plant product to be just right. In fact, after trying this to make a salad dressing or as an ingredient in a casserole, going back to the traditional stuff will be out of the question.
The amount of nutrients found in this kind of mayo product will vary, depending on what ingredients are used. What many people will find is that substitutes for traditional mayo are more likely to contain a wider range of the vitamins and minerals people need to consume each day. For those who aren’t crazy about taking vitamins and prefer to get their nutrition from the food they consume, this is one more way to meeting the recommended daily allotments.
For anyone who has never tried one of the plant based products instead of regular mayonnaise, today is the ideal time to experiment. Invest in a small jar and see how it goes. By the time the bottom of the jar is reached, the new find will be considered something to keep on hand at all times.
