Hello All, i'm looking for ideas and would appreciate your mustard alternatives - other emulsifiers for egg-less mayo-style salad dressing? Thanks!

natural emulsifiers are preferred - i'm not too keen on lecithin powders.

My bad, I should have paid more attention to the OP; you want a dressing that's like Mayo.

Sunflower seeds and/or sunflower lecithin are very commonly used in Europe. See this recipe for one example: http://www.forestandfauna.com/vegan-sunflower-seed-mayo-paleo-egg-free/

can't trust commercial eggs anymore (specially for traditional mayonnaise) - i always take them to 60c at least before ingesting. thanks for the recipe though - will look for sunflower seeds and try it.

My two cents:   Pastured Organic Eggs are extremely healthy.   Seed oils are extremely toxic unless you're pressing it yourself fresh for short term use.   Processed oils in a bottle are,  well,   processed food!    A renowned cardiologist,  Dr. Esselstyn,   explains it in this video and is echoed by many other "new age nutrition experts"


There are lots of recipes online for dressings with no oil,  usually by blending vegetables like avocado or chick peas  into a creamy 'sauce'   :)

Fascinating!... But I live in the bush of Africa and don't have good enough data to watch videos. Is there a scientific paper on the topic?

true, i'd love to make mayo from Joel Salatin's polyface eggs - or other guaranteed organic eggs. pricey stuff though - but worth every cent.

Seed oils are extremely toxic unless you're pressing it yourself fresh for short term use.

i don't see sunflower oil when i shop and i think it's more expensive than the cheap local palm oil i buy here in the Philippines. i was going to look for sunflower seeds and add them direct to my blender when i blitz my dressing.

Processed oils in a bottle are,  well,   processed food!    A renowned cardiologist,  Dr. Esselstyn,   explains it in this video and is echoed by many other "new age nutrition experts"

hmmm... i've forgotten Dr. Esselstyn since seeing Forks over Knives and his early videos. The doc means well but he can be extreme in what he prescribes as good and bad.

thanks for the ideas. i was after emulsifiers though. i do love guacamole and make some everytime i have avocados.

Are you vegan?
Milk mayo is quite tasty, if you eat milk.
Of course, if you do dairy, sour cream is as creamy as you you might want.

definitely not but i do try to limit my consumption of animal products since i don't raise any myself and most of what i can afford is from industrial producers that i am loathe to patronize. i've never tried milk mayo but i do love using cheese as a flavor boost. what i'm really seeking is a natural substitute for mustard and the lecithin in eggs so that the oil doesn't split from the rest of my salad dressing(s).

If you do an online search for “egg free mayo recipe,” you’ll get lots of results. Here’s one that looked good to me: https://www.realfoodwithdana.com/egg-free-mayo-3-ways/ Note: evoo is “extra-virgin olive oil.” I had to look that one up.

Eggs are unique in their emulsifying power, though. Mayo without eggs probably won’t be quite the same. It’s possible to pasteurize an egg so that it’s safe to use raw. Here’s a link to a tutorial. https://m.wikihow.com/Pasteurize-Eggs   The article does have quite a few drawings, but they’re simple and shouldn’t take up too much bandwidth. There were lots of others, tho, so if this one causes you trouble, just pick a different one.

thanks so much for your response. i've never made traditional mayo with raw eggs but i've used soft boiled eggs many times after seeing this video 10 years ago (time flies!):
