Contains High Vitamin E & Monounsaturated Oleic Fatty Acids
Primal Kitchen is made exclusively with avocado oil which has the highest monounsaturated oleic fatty acid profile. Oleic fatty acids are the “good fats” that make olive oil and avocado oil such nutrient-rich superstars.
Boosts Your Body's Absorption of Carotenoids
Avocado oil boosts your body’s absorption of carotenoids. Foods high in carotenoids are typically low in fat, but carotenoids like beta-carotene need to be eaten with dietary fat in order to be properly absorbed. Avocado is rich in carotenoids and fat, solving the problem in one gulp! A study published in the Journal of Nutrition showed that a salad dressed in avocado oil improved carotenoid absorption by as much as 15 times compared to a salad not wearing avocado oil.
Fights Free Radicals
Avocado can help boost a cell's ability to fight free radicals. In a recent study, the avocado oil multiplied the resistance of yeast cells against free radicals. Medical experts believe that the benefits of avocado oil could apply to human cells as well.
Helps Eliminate Industrial Seed Oil Consumption
Confused by “may contain canola and/or soybean oil”? Them too. Canola oil comes from rapeseed, a completely unpalatable seed rich in erucic acid, which is bitter and rather toxic. Canola oil is rapeseed oil stripped of erucic acid. Canola processing generally uses heat higher than 500 degrees, which means a good portion of healthful omega-3s are actually rancid—and toxic—by the time the product hits the shelf! Unfortunately, this blend of industrial seed oils is present in practically every packaged and processed food.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why did you choose Avocado Oil?
Full, rich, lingering flavor aside, they chose avocado oil for its fat composition, phytosterols and polyhydroxelated fatty alcohols, all of which are anti-inflammatory in nature. It’s also notably high in Vitamin E and monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acids. In a recent study, both high and low doses of avocado oil enhanced alpha-carotene, beta-carotene and lutein absorption from a salad by as much as 15 times compared to a salad without avocado oil.
What is the vital fat composition of Avocado Oil?
Omega-6 to omega-3 ratio: 13.1:1 Omega-3 fatty acids: 1% Omega-6 fatty acids: 12.5% Omega-9 fatty acids: 67.9% Saturated fatty acids: 11.6%
How long does Primal Kitchen Mayo last in the cabinet before it is opened?
Primal Kitchen Mayo is good for 9 months, unopened. (They dare you to attempt to keep a jar that long.)
Does it need to be refrigerated?
Yes, after you open your jar of mayo, it needs to be refrigerated.
How long does it last in the fridge after opening?
Depends on your appetite for awesome tasting mayo. At company headquarters, not too long! They recommend you consume within 60 days of opening.
Is their vinegar derived from corn?
Heck no! They use vinegar derived from Non-GMO beets.
Is Primal Kitchen Non-GMO Project Verified?
They are in the process of undergoing the Non-GMO Project Verification. All of their ingredients are non-GMO and they hope to be finished with the verification process in the next few months. Stay tuned!
Will the mayo freeze in transit?
If you live in a cold climate, your product may arrive frozen. Fear not! Simply refrigerate upon receipt and stir before enjoying. They could have chosen fillers and artificial preservatives to avoid this issue, but they don't think it's worth the sacrifice. Real food ingredients = separation.
About Primal Kitchen
His name is Mark Sisson, and he is a former elite endurance athlete who has made health and fitness his life’s work. Since trading in his professional running shoes 26 years ago, he has written a series of best-selling health and fitness books, designed natural state-of-the-art, health-enhancing nutritional supplements and educational diet and exercise systems, and has published Mark’sDailyApple.com, the world’s most popular ancestral health website. His mission is to empower more people to take responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing and critically rethinking everything people assumed to be true about health and wellness. Primal Kitchen expands this mission, bringing uncompromisingly delicious, high quality, nutrient dense sauces and dressings to kitchens everywhere. In the world of real food, it’s often what you put on your food that keeps it interesting. Join Mark on his mission to help 10 million people get healthy!
For 20 years now, I’ve enjoyed a daily 20-ingredient salad made up of turkey, salmon or tuna, sometimes some nuts like almonds or walnuts, along with tons of veggies like bell peppers, broccoli, cucumbers and artichokes. Although Mark loves his trusty balsamic vinegar and olive oil topping, he has also searched far and wide for healthy and tasty salad dressing alternatives. Unfortunately, he's run into one of two scenarios. Either the dressings are laden with industrial seed and vegetable oils like canola, sunflower, corn and soy oila – the primary instigators in all manner of chronic disease – or they boast out-of-this-world health and ingredient claims but tasteless, bland “flavor.” Mark noticed the same dearth exists in condiments like ketchup, mayo and BBQ sauce. Sure, tasty enough options exist, but they all compromise your health and longevity!
So he set to work cooking up Primal-inspired salad dressings and condiments full of healthful, natural fats, superfoods, antioxidant-rich, high-ORAC-scoring herbs and spices, with no offensive, synthetic vegetable and seed oils and no artificial colors, flavors or fillers! The first product he set out to reinvent was mayonnaise – the holy grail of healthy fats. The complete lack of acceptable mayonnaise in-store today is appalling. Most options contain canola oil, soybean oil, sugar, HFCS, the list goes on. For Primal Kitchen Mayo, Mark chose to use one of his favorite superfoods – avocado oil – instead of canola or soybean oil. Combine that with organic, cage-free eggs, organic vinegar and salt and they've got one awesome tasting mayonnaise! Healthy mayo, who knew?
Now there’s no more sacrificing flavor for health. All Primal Kitchen ingredients are selected according to the strictest standards of taste, natural healthfulness and phytonutrient potency. Primal Kitchen is among life’s little affordable luxuries and created to be used extravagantly, so pour it on generously. The days of “easy on the salad dressing” are officially over! Make every bite a taste sensation.
Why Aren't They 100% Organic?
You see, while organic is non-negotiable for some ingredients like eggs, it’s just not worth the huge added expense for certain others. Avocados, for instance, don’t need to be bought organic, because pesticides can’t penetrate their tough skin no matter how hard they try! Plus, organic avocado oil costs almost four times as much as non-organic, so you’d be paying four times as much for a jar of mayo with no appreciable added benefit. Now, if they wanted to rip you off just for the organic claim, they could have opted for organic canola oil. But that’s just not their style…they’d rather mix non-organic, quality ingredients when appropriate with select organic nutrients, rather than contaminate their foods.
Grok is the oft-cited star of their Paleolithic backdrop, the poster-persona of the Primal Kitchen itself. Think of him as the non-gender specific collective archetype of the typical hunter-gatherer who thrived on evolutionary tried and true lifestyle behaviors: diet, exercise, sleep, stress, etc. And although Grok hearkens back to the cave-dwelling days, by modern standards he’s the pinnacle of physiological vigor. Picture a tall, strapping figure: lean, ripped, agile. And as for what’s underneath? An enviable workup: low to no systemic inflammation, low insulin and blood glucose readings, healthy (i.e. ideally functional) cholesterol and triglyceride levels. “Hmm,” you say, closing your menu. “I’ll have what he’s having.”
