Kraft has been a household brand for many generations, and as such, it’s trusted by consumers. But, unfortunately, that trust will go right out the door once you learn what’s in Kraft Real Mayonnaise.

There are 10 grams of fat, 1.5 grams of which is saturated fat. There’s also some sugar. And then there’s that preservative again that seems to keep showing up in many mayo brands.

Ingredients: Soybean Oil, Water, Eggs, Vinegar, Contains Less Than 2% of Sugar, Salt, Egg Yolks, Natural Flavor (contains mustard), Lemon Juice Concentrate, Calcium Disodium EDTA (to protect flavor), Dried Garlic, Dried Onions, Paprika.

Nutrition Facts (for 1 tablespoon): 90 calories, 10 grams of fat (1.5 grams of saturated fat), 70 milligrams of sodium, 0 grams of carbs (0 grams of fiber, 2 grams of sugar), 0 grams of protein

But, it isn’t just what’s in it that makes it a poor choice. It’s also the taste. According to Mashed.com, its flavor isn’t all that great, and its aftertaste is even worse. The website compared it to eating old mayo that has sat out on the counter for too long.
