Stabilizer compounds for traditional mayonnaise

    Traditional, high-fat content mayonnaise is used as a table condiment - delicious, decorative and ready to consume.

    Egg yolk is usually used as an emulsifier. In order to achieve a stable, creamy mayonnaise with a long shelf-life, we recommend adding blends of stabilizers containing, for example, guar and xanthan gum (Palsgaard® 5308 and Palsgaard® 5232).

    Palsgaard's range of stabilizer compounds help you create a traditional mayonnaise with:

    • High stabilityMayonnaise
    • Nice, firm texture
    • High or low viscosity
    • Extended shelf life
    • Good mouth-feel
    • Optimized recipe

    Interested in reducing or eliminating the amount of egg yolk in your mayo?

    Price variations of egg yolk is a challenge to mayonnaise and dressing manufacturers, making it difficult to keep a constant product price when one of the more expensive raw materials fluctuate significantly. Palsgaard has developed a series of stabilizer solutions that will allow you to develop recipes completely without eggs or with reduced amounts of eggs - but with similar results as traditional recipes. Find out more here.
