How to Make Soyannaise, Healthy Alternative to Mayonnaise

Although all commercial mayonnaise products are made from soybean oil, there are tofu-based styles that are free of eggs as well as saturated fat. Of course there’s a vegan alternative to mayonnaise – and it tastes just as good as the real thing. Here is a great way to enjoy the taste of mayonnaise without the saturated fat usually found in the “real” stuff!

A Viable Business Venture

Soyannaise is a breakthrough in the health-food industry. A soy-based cream can be used as a spread, dressing or dip and is very easy to prepare.

It can also be a viable business venture because you can supply the product to so many restaurants and stores that need it for their salads and healthy sandwiches. Because these stores are targeting the health-conscious, soyannaise is perfect for them.

Producers that intend to supply restaurants and stores with soyannaise must first contact the store’s purchasing officer or manager, who normally would require samples. One or two bottles for sampling should be presented to them along with some chips, sandwiches, and salads that the target customers could sample the product with.

Besides being a healthier alternative to mayonnaise and other high-cholesterol dressings, soyannaise is very easy to prepare. All you need to do is to mix the following ingredients in a blender:


  • 250 g sterilized tofu
  • 250 ml soy milk
  • 1/8 cup calamansi extract
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp chopped white onions
  • 2 tbsp honey

All of these ingredients are available from supermarkets and public markets.
