What Makes a Great Avocado Oil Mayonnaise?

High-quality Avocado Oil Mayonnaise coats the mouth with a creamy texture that is rich and smooth. There’s a moderately long length of dissolve with slight astringency. It may cause the mouth might pucker slightly.

The aroma and flavor profile leads with moderate egg and neutral oil intensity. There is low vinegar or lemon. Very low intensity of mustard may be noted and this adds to overall quality if present.

The taste profile is low to moderate salt and sour, followed by lower sweetness. There may be slight bitter.

The mayonnaise is shiny and thick with a yellow and/or ivory color.

It spreads readily on a piece of white bread and the flavor of the mayonnaise comes through. Its taste profile is expected to change slightly depending on the sweetness of the bread, but it should not be overly salty or sour. It adheres to the bread and, according to style, may be absorbed by the bread or sit on top.
