Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo with Olive Oil Review

Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo with Olive OilI try to keep away from any kind of mayonnaise, regular, light, reduced, low-fat, no fat, because I just haven't found one that I like yet. But after watching some very effective marketing on Kraft Mayo with Olive Oil, I gave in and decided to try it. Let me start by pointing out that I love Olive Oil, and I would use it on everything if I could. I was surprised to find that this mayo had ½ the fat and calories of the regular kind and tasted much better than half of the other "light" mayonnaise products out there. It does have a certain unique flavor that makes it different from other mayo and that actually was a plus for me. However, I wasn't crazy about the olive oil taste. Seems to me that whatever kind of olive oil Kraft is using is not a very good kind.

One serving of Kraft Mayo with Olive Oil is 1 tablespoon, which provides 45 calories, 4 grams of fat (6% of the daily recommendations), 2 grams of total carbohydrates (1% of RDA) and 95 mg of sodium (4% of RDA). Regular Kraft mayonnaise has 100 calories and 11 grams of total fat (17% of the RDA), 1.5 grams of which are saturated (8% of the RDA).

If you are looking for a more healthier choice and want to replace your regular mayo, you could give this one a shot. Each tub costs $3.50, which is a bit more expensive than the regular kind. In my case I'll keep using pure extra virgin olive oil for my salads and mustard for my sandwiches!
