Behold, Fabanaise. ← Don’t skip clicking on the link, it’s actually fun to watch and read. I promise.
Fabanaise is a brand of vegan mayo made from aquafaba (if you say “Aquafa-what?”, then all the more reason to click on the link), without soy, without gluten, GMO-free, and of course egg-free. The makers graciously sent samples of the two vegan flavors currently available: regular and chipotle.
Below is the list of ingredients for the regular flavor of Fabanaise, courtesy of the Fab folks.
You can find the list of ingredients on their site by clicking (wait for it) on the Ingredients link next to Nutrition info, both placed on the right side of every product. I’m putting this here for info but mostly because Sir Kensington has a great sense of humor. And a magnificent hat.
On a shallow note, I love-love the packaging and design of this product. Posh-looking, monocled Sir Kensington looks quite proud of his vegan mayo. With good reason.
The flavor is simply outstanding. It’s bright, light, with great texture, and I want to put it everywhere and maybe even use it as toothpaste. Except it’s not available where I live just yet, so I’ll need to be a little more parsimonious with what’s left until I can get more. Or I could hassle various grocery store managers until a. they order some, or b. they aquafaboot me out of there.
One of the things that seals the deal for me with Fabanaise, outside of being flawless anywhere mayonnaise is called for, is that the company “rescues” aquafaba from a hummus-making company instead of it being tossed out. Gotta love companies that help prevent waste of any kind.
They also make what sounds like superb mustards and ketchup. Note that some of the mayonnaise products they sell aren’t vegan, so keep that in mind when making your selection.
