I note that none of the 4 BTs (secretor or non) shows Eggs as Avoids, but:
If you are or know someone who is not permitted as many eggs as s/he'd like to eat, look at the video here:
http://hamptoncreek.com/
I and a friend taste-tested the mayonnaise, and it was very good. My friend bought the product ("Just Mayo"), because this is an issue for him, and he loves it.
In the video, however, you'll hear that a goal of this company is to make egg-eating "obsolete", and they count Bill Gates among their investors.
Ah, San Francisco...

Canola = rapeseed

Use ratings accordingly.

No.
And:
The Nutrition label that told you there is Canola oil in the Just Mayo product also very clearly states "Non-GMO" canola oil - it should avert such questions about this company/venture.
The company has been created and funded specifically to avoid using the unhealthy shortcuts of a food industry it deplores, so the question isn't pertinent to this product.

NO WAY!!!!!!

Plus, Bill Gates is one of the biggest pushers of GM seeds around the world. Sorry - but if he is a big investor, I do not trust the company at all.

My opinion.

I feel the same way Ginny- According to BTD I can have canola oil, but when I consume it I get violent stomach cramps. My body just can't handle franken-foods.

juliebug,
I wish there was a "like" button for the posts on this forum.  I'd sure give you a like for that reply!

My friend loves Just Mayo and must cut back on his egg consumption - he looks for opportunities to substitute for it where he uses mayonnaise.
I don't know how many ounces of mayo you'd use per week, say.
Or how many ingredients past the top four or five in a sauce have to be beneficials in your case.
For my friend, this beats making his own using "egg beaters" mass-produced products.

The Whole Foods tasting was a hit; to me it tasted like Hellmann's - the local mayo where I grew up (New York).
Hellmann's's ingredients:
SOYBEAN OIL, WATER, WHOLE EGGS AND EGG YOLKS, VINEGAR, SALT, SUGAR, LEMON JUICE, CALCIUM DISODIUM EDTA (USED TO PROTECT QUALITY), NATURAL FLAVORS. GLUTEN-FREE.
Just Mayo's Ingredients:
Non-GMO Expeller-Pressed Canola Oil, Filtered Water, Lemon Juice, White Vinegar, 2% or less of the following: Organic Sugar, Salt, Apple Cider Vinegar, Pea Protein, Spices, Garlic, Modified Food Starch, Beta-Carotene.

Most people would appreciate that Just Mayo's fifth through twelfth ingredients (in descending order of proportion, beginning with under 2%) are listed by percent so they don't have to worry unduly about ingredient number 11 while they enjoy an incredibly tasty eggless mayonnaise.
For those who share that priority - no eggs in a largely four-ingredient mayonnaise - it's a good product. It would appear that most are not using Just Mayo as a daily soup or anything - just a smear of it on a sandwich or a spoonful in an occasional tuna salad for a family... I think my friend uses it in that normal way, being a normal guy.

I didn't need to read any further than that.

For someone who has an egg allergy there are a number of workarounds. That don't involve canola oil, which is an avoid for all B's and also for O non-secretors, while being beneficial for none.

If someone wants to use it that is up to them. It's a bit ironic that a B would be defending the use of canola oil to make egg eating obsolete.

This non-egg mayo recipe is on site. It uses canola but suggests olive oil as a substitute.

http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/recipedepictor7x.cgi?122


It does not use modified food starch - which is probably added to thicken and or stabilize the commercial product being touted.

Lloyd,
THANK YOU FOR THAT LINK!  I am going to make a half batch and see how we like it!   It does sound good.  I do make real mayo but always hesitate a wee bit when it comes to using raw eggs.  This recipe is a great work-around.

No B I know has (a) the goal of making egg-eating obsolete, or (b) defended the use of canola oil in pursuit of such a questionable goal.
Reading the actual post would make that quite clear.
But it seems, Lloyd, you really went out of your way to isolate that byte from the details of the post for some reason.
A great deal of effort to -what?- negate my personal love of eggs?

I am on record at dadamo as extolling the marvel of the egg, having actually initiated threads about its perfection as a food for humans.
Search 'em out, as long as you're expending all that effort.
PS.

Hardly. Not my motive at all.   

I'm still enjoying the irony. Wish you could see it.
