Vegan Mayo Made From Aquafaba is Hitting Stores Soon!
The condiment company Sir Kensington’s is know for their specialty mayos, mustards, and ketchups. Following the footsteps of Hellman’s and Ben & Jerry’s, they have decided to unleash a plantbased product to entice vegan customers. Introducing Fabanaise, the first commercial vegan mayonnaise made from aquafaba!
Chickpea brine, or its more appetizing title of “aquafaba,” has been blowing up in foodie communities, especially curious vegan cooks looking for a way to whip up a plantbased meringue without the traditional eggs. Sir Kensington’s vegan mayo is certain to be a game changer in a world where oil-based vegan mayos reign supreme. The company’s vice president of marketing said about experimenting with aquafaba:
“When we played around with it, we fell in love with the mayo we made with it. It didn’t have an aftertaste, and it had great texture.”
Ensuring the New York-based company is sourcing a sustainable chickpea brine they have teamed up with local Ithaca hummus producers. Sir Kensington’s will use the leftover chickpea brine from their product to make the mayo, instead of the liquid going to waste. So far, Fabanaise will be available in classic and chipotle flavors and is set to appear in specialty stores in May.
