Why is mayonnaise made from avocado oil better than mayonnaise made from vegetable or canola oil?
Avocado oil is the best tasting ketogenic mayonnaise. It is rich in oleic acid and the antioxidant lutein, offers health benefits and is an excellent seasoning.
Canola and vegetable oils are often made from genetically modified crops (also called rapeseed oil) and should be avoided. The same is true for soybean oil. All oxidize easily and are oxidized very quickly when exposed to heat, light and oxygen, and contribute to inflammation in the body when ingested.
Simple ingredients for homemade avocado mayonnaise
- 2 egg yolks (at room temperature)
- 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons of water
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 2 cups avocado oil
Health benefits of avocado oil
Avocado oil is extracted from the fleshy skin of the fruit, which yields an oil with a balance of healthy omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids and oleic acid. Studies show that they can help prevent the development of diseases such as high triglycerides, high cholesterol and diabetes.
In addition, the monounsaturated fatty acids in avocado oil reduce the risk of heart disease. Since it is rich in lutein, it is also beneficial for the eyes. All the more reason to make a delicious mayonesa de aguacate keto.
Why is egg yolk in mayonnaise?
Mayonnaise is basically fat dissolved in water. Therefore, egg yolk is used to bind the water and the oil. In short, the egg yolk, which contains phospholipid lecithin and egg white, acts as an emulsifier. Half of the lecithin dissolves in water and the other half in oil, creating the thick, creamy consistency of mayonnaise.
What does lemon do in mayonnaise recipes?
The addition of lemon juice can add incredible flavor to a condiment while helping to stabilize the mixture. You can also use vinegar, but make sure it is of good quality, preferably white wine vinegar. It adds a subtle flavor to the keto mayonnaise and reemulsifies the mixture.
How to fix broken mayonnaise (mayonesa de aguacate keto) – what to do if the emulsion breaks?
Don’t panic if your keto mayonnaise emulsion breaks – it can be fixed. Stir in two teaspoons of hot, boiling water. This allows the egg yolk to emulsify back into the oil. In less than 10 seconds, the mayonnaise ingredients are back together. If two teaspoons of water are not enough, add another teaspoon or two of hot water, depending on the amount of seasoning, and continue whisking.
Another good way to restore the emulsion of a ketogenic mayonnaise is to add another egg yolk. Put the yolk in a clean bowl and whisk the crushed mixture very slowly in it.
Remember that the emulsion is most likely to break down if you quickly add oil to the mixture. Pour the oil slowly so that the emulsion remains intact.
