Introducing the Fabulous Fabanaise

by Anne Paddock

None of the eggs, all of the flavor.

Fabanaise is a new product on the market offered as an alternative to commercial mayonnaise. Whereas most mass produced mayonnaise contains soybean oil, eggs, natural flavor, and calcium disodium EDTA (a preservative), Fabanaise contains ingredients often found in your kitchen pantry:

  • Sunflower oil
  • Aquafaba (water,chickpeas, kombu seaweed)*
  • White distilled vinegar
  • Sea salt
  • Organic sugar
  • Lemon juice
  • White pepper

Fabanaise*If you’ve ever drained chickpeas (garbanzo beans), then you already know what aquafaba is. Chickpeas are cooked in water. When strained, the liquid left behind is aquafaba which most people pour down the drain. The good people at Sir Kensington’s realized that aquafaba had excellent egg-like qualities and partnered with a hummus company to save the liquid, have it transferred to Sir Kensington’s manufacturing facilities where it is used to make Fabanaise.Fabanaise

Smooth, creamy, and totally fabulous, Fabanaise is dairy and egg free, non-GMO, and vegan. The color is very white and glossy with a light, silky texture and flavor. If you’re used to eating traditional or commercial mayonnaise, then Fabanaise may not taste as rich (or egg-like) and yet, the nutritional aspects from calories per tablespoon (90) to fat (10 grams), saturated fat (1 gram), and sodium (65 grams) are virtually identical.Fabanaise

The differences come down to better ingredients and a lighter more fabulous flavor with Fabanaise that takes sandwiches from good to great. Fabanaise can also be used to make the dressing for cole slaw or any dressing that calls for mayonnaise. 

Fabanaise is also better for the environment (less grains and water used to produce the eggs), and the chickens (the majority of whom spend their short miserable lives in terrible, crowded conditions).fabanaise

Sir Kensington also makes a Chipotle Fabanaise which contains:

  • Sunflower oil
  • Aquafaba (water, chickpeas, Kombu Seaweed)
  • Distilled Vinegar
  • Lemon Juice
  • Salt, Organic Sugar
  • Tomato Paste
  • Chipotle Powder
  • Paprika, Black Pepper
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic Powder
  • Cumin
