Extra mayo, hold the factory-farmed eggs.
"Hellmann’s has announced that its Light Mayonnaise recipe in North America will feature 100% certified cage-free eggs in the United States as part of its ongoing commitment to 'Real Food,'" says a news release from the company.
Imagine that: a global food conglomerate, Unilever, getting interested in "real food." I like it!
The news release goes on to say:
"Hellmann’s Light Mayonnaise is the first consumer product of its stature and volume in the packaged food industry to use 100% percent cage-free eggs -- which equates to approximately 3.5 million pounds of eggs. Eggs used in Hellmann’s Light Mayonnaise (and other recipes) will be ‘American Humane Certified,’ a certification program administered by the American Humane Association (AHA), the leading certifier of cage-free eggs in the U.S.
"Hellmann's aspires to change all of its ‘Real Food’ mayonnaise recipes – Real, Canola Cholesterol Free, Olive Oil, and Low Fat Mayonnaise Dressing – to cage-free eggs once a certifiable and consistent supply become available in North America."
