About Kewpie Mayonnaise Recipe
Kewpie mayonnaise is a Japanese brand known for its umami-rich, tangy-sweet flavour profile. Kewpie mayo is made with only egg yolks, as opposed to whole eggs in American mayonnaise, giving it an exceptionally lush, smooth texture and a deeper yellow colour.
Ingredients For Kewpie Mayonnaise Recipe
The yolks of eggs provide a viscous, continuous phase. This improves emulsion stability by preventing dispersed oil droplets from moving around and gathering, or coalescing. Adding egg yolk to whole eggs increases the viscosity of the emulsion, making it more stable.
For mayonnaise, use a neutral, refined oil such as avocado oil, grape seed oil, canola oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, light olive oil, or blended oil (a mix of olive and vegetable oils). Use unrefined, extra-virgin olive oil instead, as it has a strong flavour and may cause mayonnaise to separate.
Apple cider vinegar
Vinegar is one of the ingredients most often used to form an antimicrobial barrier. It is the most common acid used in the preservation of mayonnaise because it has antiseptic value and also helps prevent deterioration and rancidity.
