Mayonnaise adds taste to a whole variety of foods- sandwiches, shawarma, burgers, salads and more. However, it is not often deemed healthy as regular consumption is connected to cardiovascular issues. As mayonnaise contains a high level of Omega-6 fatty acids, it will also cause blood pressure to shoot up.
Over-consumption of mayonnaise also raises the spectrum of various diseases including cardiac arrests and stroke.
But then, you have the option of preparing a tasty and healthy mayonnaise at your home. Even if no egg or any preservatives are added, it can be creamy and can be made in a flash. All vegetarians and those who look for lighter diets can give it an occasional try.
