There are a lot of doubts about mayonnaise being or not gluten-free. Actually, that same doubt is out there for almost all food. Tomato sauce, butter, salad dressings, peanut butter, worcestershire sauce, salsa, oil, juice, milk. You always wonder if something you would like to eat contains or not gluten. But the truth is that nowadays many manufacturers add so many preservatives, chemicals and artificial flavors to food that they end up being unhealthy and unsafe. Same thing happens with popular food products. Despite they are gluten-free, manufacturers add many ingredients, and unfortunately, wheat, rye or barley are generally one of them. It can be very annoying for celiacs to not find all the answers to their questions when searching for gluten-free brands. “Is mayonnaise gluten-free?”, “what butter cheese brands are gluten-free?”, “does butter contain gluten?”, “Is canola oil safe for celiacs?”. Those are the typical questions I always type in Google every time I go food shopping for my husband. It’s unbelievable how much time I can literally waste looking for safe products and brands for celiacs to eat. Most of the time I find no answers when I look for safe gluten-free products and it becomes frustrating because I wish I could find all the answers to make my grocery shopping faster. Facing that problem, Matt and I have been working to instead of being the ones looking for answers, to be the ones providing the answers to those questions. And that’s why we have been working hard on putting together the most useful informations and tips for celiacs. Typing in Google “what mayonnaise brands are gluten-free” and actually reading a list of good options to try, would definitely make things easier, but that’s why sometimes we have to look for the solution to the problems instead of waiting for someone else to give us the solution. Matt is celiac, I am not. We are not nutritionists, but based on his daily experiences with gluten and cross-contaminated food, we intend to inform other celiacs and provide them with what we think can be helpful to them. So when it comes to finding gluten-free food, the safest way to get there is by always reading labels carefully because gluten is a hidden component that is not only present in food but in hygiene products, personal care products, vitamin supplements and even medicines. By reading the ingredients that commercial food products contain, you will be avoiding damaging your intestinal tract. To make your life a little easier, we put together some of the gluten-free brands my husband has tested, and some of them we are about to try, so when you go food shopping you can have easy access to a source that can well inform you. Now take a look at the list of gluten-free mayonnaises that we want to share with you:
Sir Kensington's Avocado Oil Mayonnaise is a great option to try because it is not only gluten-free, but it tastes really goof. We tried it recently and we loved how it tastes.
The ingredients used for this mayonnaise are:
Simple ingredients that make your mayonnaise safe for your stomach!
The other day we started looking for Certified Gluten-Free mayonnaises to see what we could find, and we came across this brand.
We had never seen Spectrum before that day but we decided to try its Organic Mayonnaise and it turned out really good. Matt didn’t feel sick at all and it tastes delicious.
The ingredients used are:
My husband and I love mayonnaise, we like adding it to potatoes, hamburgers or any meal that needs a tasty flavor. At first, all mayonnaises that Matt would try would bother him and we didn’t know how to solve that problem. So we started researching and looking for the ones that would be Certified Gluten-Free for our peace of mind, and we found Primal Kitchen’s Avocado Oil Mayonnaise. It is made with avocado oil, organic eggs, and rosemary extract, and you should incorporate it into your gluten-free lifestyle because it’s worth trying it.
When Matt and I started traveling together throughout Latin America, he got sick too often after eating. Many brands were not safe for him, and unfortunately we realized it months later. So we started trying new recipes with less processed ingredients. Mayonnaise was one of them. We read a recipe online and we started making our homemade mayonnaise. The result was terrible. It didn’t work well so we decided to buy mayonnaise again instead. Recently we have been researching for safe brands and we came across Nucoconut, that although we haven’t tried it yet, we have read good reviews about their Coconut Vegan Mayo. The ingredients used are:
We have all heard about Hellmann's. It is a traditional brand that has been offering a lot of food products since many years ago.
Their Real Mayonnaise is made with real and simple ingredients. They only use cage-free eggs, oil and vinegar.
We love food products that are simple and that don’t have so many ingredients or preservatives added.
So we definitely recommend to you this product.
Have you heard about Brandless? Let me tell you about it. It is a new company that offers people the possibility to buy a variety of affordable products. They started in 2017 and sell all of their products for $3, so you don’t have to worry about checking their prices. I was surprised to find out that one of the products they offer is a Certified Gluten-Free Mayonnaise which makes it very trustworthy. It is made of organic, cage free eggs, no artificial flavors added, and of course gluten-free. We haven’t tried it yet but we are looking forward to give it a try.
For a century Duke’s have been offering people high quality products.
One of them is their gluten-free Real Mayonnaise that we have been meaning to try.

The popular brand Kirkland Signature offers a good option for celiacs too. Their Real Mayonnaise is made with cage free eggs, it is kosher and of course gluten-free. So why not giving it a try?
Another brand we haven’t tried yet but we are looking forward to is Follow your Heart.

Their recipe is egg-free, vegan, dairy-free, kosher and gluten-free.
The ingredients used for their Original Vegenaise are:

Celiacs know the thread that cross-contamination represents. They also know that ingredients like xantam gum to substitute gluten’s consistency in food can be painful for their stomachs.
Tessemae’s offer an Organic Mayonnaise free of gums and it is made of:
We haven’t tried this brand yet but we are looking forward to it.
