What is the difference between Kewpie and American Mayonnaise ?
American Mayonnaise is usually made from a soy-based vegetable oil along with water, eggs, distilled vinegar, salt, and sugar. Japanese mayonnaise also uses soy-based vegetable oil and many of the same ingredients. They don’t add water however and Japanese mayonnaise uses apple or rice vinegar rather than distilled vinegar. Japanese mayonnaise also uses egg yolks rather than whole eggs.
