Any thoughts on this? I am looking for a mayo that is made from olive or coconut oil. I would make my own, but I don't want to hassle every week and the problems with consistancy. I would like something commercial.

I think there is a brand made with Canola Oil. I don't remember if that is ideal but I believe it is better than Soybean Oil.

Hellmann's now has canola oil mayo. I'm eating it with my tuna right now. 1 tbsp has 4.5 g fat (0 sat., 1.5 polyunsat, and 2.5 monounsat). It is also cholesterol free.

Not organic, but far better than the traditional mayo's.

Edit: And it's the same price as the regular.

I know about the canola oil version, I was trying to avoid him as well.

I found some brands online, but they were out of stock.

I've never seen commercially made mayo from olive or coconut oil. I know some people avoid canola oil because of the highly refined production and/or erucic acid, shown to be deleterious in animal studies. However, Loren Cordain (Paleodiet) recommends canola because of its high monounsaturated oil ratio and omega-3 ratio. The erucic acid content of commercial canola is quite low. I use Best Foods (aka Hellmans) canola mayo. Homemade mayo with olive oil is awesome, but I agree that its inconvenient. I'm not quite sure if you could make mayo with coconut oil - isn't it solid at room temp? It'd be difficult to gradually whisk into the egg yolk.
