How we test

Products

We tested 33 mayonnaise products with the word 'mayonnaise' or 'mayo' on the label available nationally in major supermarket chains. This included 'light' or reduced fat versions and vegan products. We excluded uniquely flavoured varieties.

Price is as purchased in stores (not on special) in January 2022. 

Tasting

Mayonnaise samples are put into coded containers immediately before the test, and our experts taste the mayonnaise samples 'blind' (without knowing the brands) and in a randomised order, which is different for each expert.

Scores

Experts independently judge all mayonnaise products, scoring each sample for appearance, aroma, texture and flavour. 

The CHOICE Expert Rating is made up of taste 90% (50% flavour/taste and eating quality, 30% texture/mouthfeel, 15% appearance and aroma, 5% true to name) and nutrition 10% (based on the product's Health Star Rating, calculated from the details in the nutrition information panel and converted to a percentage). 

We recommend mayonnaise with a CHOICE Expert Rating of 70% or more.
