What Makes Miracle Whip And Mayo Different?
The differences between Mayonnaise and Miracle Whip have caused several arguments among people over which they prefer. Mayonnaise was created in 1856 by the French chef of Duke de Richelieu, while Miracle Whip was invented, patented, and made available to the public in Chicago in 1933 as a cheap alternative to mayonnaise.
Mayonnaise is an emulsion of egg yolks, oil, acids and seasonings; Miracle Whip, on the other hand, is made with water, high fructose corn syrup, and soybean oil, giving it a sweeter flavor, as opposed to the tangier taste of mayo. Miracle Whip also contains a unique blend of spices that include mustard, paprika, and garlic, adding to the taste difference.
Although both condiments are very similar and can be used interchangeably, Miracle Whip typically contains less fat and calories than mayo, but its refined additives make mayo a slightly healthier choice. The best thing you can do is by whipping up your own healthy mayo with a blend of egg yolks, acid, and less-inflammatory oil.
