I hate mustard, and love putting mayo in my tuna. I always use low-fat mayo, but still that contains 5 grams of fat per tbsp. and I put 3 in each can of tuna. Anyone know an alternative for mayo I can use for my tuna, I gotta have my tuna sandwitches :).

I've never seen fat-free mayo at the store, does it exist? I know mayo is nothing but fat.

Miracle whip makes non-fat mayo as do a couple of other companies. If you can't find it at your local grocery store try using 1tbsp mayo with 2tbsp plain yogurt. That way you maintain the consistency of mayo and don't loose all the flavor.

You can make your own,

Use a quality oil like Olive, and you need egg, and some spices you need a good blender tho,

And it dosn't last long because of lack of preservatives,

Most health food store sell such an animal - mayo based on healthy oils (olive or canola).

there are two types of low fat mayo. look for the one with 2 grams of total fat. also, tuna mixed with some lemon juice and c tasty cottage cheese never hurt anyone. i've also heated up the tuna and then mixed it with some lemon juice/ ccheese..

try mixing it with sum fat free thousand island dressing. Or if that is too much for u i usally use like one scoop of mayo and then the thousand island so u it gives it sum flavor and u dont have to use as much mayo either.

i use smartbeat mayo. from what i remember, it's 10 cals per tbsp, so that would be around 1.5g fat.

I've not looked for it, but have been told you can get olive oil and canola oil mayo at health food stores.

Hardboiled egg whites ground up in a food processer give tuna a pretty good consistency. You can add in a few yolks if you want.

Another alternative is to use plain, fat free yogurt. Although some brands have lower sugar content, using yogurt still may not suit your diet.

All fat free mayo's in stores are loaded with sugars.

Helmans makes a decent reduced fat mayo. (Green label), still has sugars, but not as much as the fat free varieties. It contains 25 calories per TBSP.

Spectrum makes a flax oil mayonaise... very good, but a bit pricey.

Yup low/no fat mayo = high sugar mayo. A little mayo wont hurt. And its proabably easier to burn of 4g of fat than 14g of sugar. 3 tbs per can seems a bit much though.

I have fat free Kraft mayo...tastes really good, i use it on all my sandwhiches and tuna. I found it at my local grocery store and at Wal-Mart. If you like reguar mayo, try this stuff out, it actually tastes like real mayo.

i tried 1 TBSP of LF mayo, 1/2 cup or more of cottage cheese with a little splenda sprinkled on top, mixed with 1 can (approx 40 g protein) tuna and a tiny bit of lemon juice.. its was sort of like whitefish salad, but in a really good way. it was better than mayo by itself by the way. try it with as little mayo as possible to keep it the healthiest.. peace
