Does your Vegan Gourmet® cheese really melt?

Yes, it really melts! Just preheat your oven to 450* if you are cooking in the oven (if you are cooking a casserole at another temperature and you want to melt cheese on top just cook it covered and when it's almost done put it under the broiler for a few minutes.) Vegan Gourmet® also melts great on the stovetop or in the microwave.

What is the difference between the various types of Vegenaise®?

Vegenaise® comes in five types, Original (Blue Lid), Grapeseed Oil (Purple Lid), Organic (Green Lid), Reduced Fat (Yellow Lid) and Soy-Free (Light Green Lid). All varieties of Vegenaise® have very similar nutritional compositions except for Reduced Fat Vegenaise®, which contains approximately half the fat and calories of other Vegenaise® products.
Original Vegenaise® is made with select non-GMO expeller-pressed Canola Oil. The canola oil we use is verified from non-GMO seeds and is extracted without the use of solvents. Canola oil has a neutral taste, and is lowest in saturated fat of all edible vegetable oils.
Grapeseed Vegenaise® is made with grapeseed oil, a premium oil with a more distinctive taste which is also known for its uniquely healthful properties.
Organic Vegenaise® is made with Organic, Expeller-Pressed Canola Oil.

Reduced Fat Vegenaise® is made with expeller-pressed Safflower Oil, Olive Oil, and Flaxseed Oils and contains less than half the fat and calories of traditional mayonnaise.
Soy-Free Vegenaise® is entirely allergen-free and made with a pea protein in place of soy as well as a High-Oleic Expeller-Pressed Safflower Oil.

Do you pronounce it Vej-a-naze or Ve-gan-aze ?

When we first invented Vegenaise® in the early 70's, the word “vegan” was not widely recognized. We named it Vegenaise® for "vegetarian mayonnaise". But today, with so many vegans enjoying our product, we really think that Veganaise® is a great name too. So, call it what you will, just ask for it by name.

What is Vegenaise®?

Vegenaise® is a mayonnaise alternative that is Better than Mayo®! The Federal Standard of Identity specifies that mayonnaise must contain eggs. Vegenaise® is egg free. Therefore, it comes under the FDA category of Dressing and Sandwich Spread. Nevertheless, in taste tests, consumers and food experts consistently identify Vegenaise® as tasting more like real mayonnaise than other products, including many containing eggs.
