Real Ingredients - It's No Yolk, They Really Are The Best!

In short, we are hugely proud of the egg yolk we use in our mayonnaise.

With the second main ingredient of mayonnaise being egg yolks, we had no choice but to source the finest available…

Egg yolks are what give our mayonnaise the rich, creamy and silky texture along with the gorgeous deep colour as praised by the Great Taste Awards panel.

The provenance of our ingredients along with the quality and transparency is at the top of our agenda when developing our product range.

Nature's Perfect Food

With eggs being touted as natures perfect food, rich in protein, fat and nutrients like B vitamins, Choline and Selenium, we’re huge fans of eggs here at Hunter & Gather.

With Choline being shown to aid in brain, nervous system and cell health and Selenium contributing to bone health and energy production, what more could you ask for?

What's not a real food!

Early on in our journey, we came to realise that many producers use non British sourced eggs and sometimes even spray dried powdered eggs that can contain undeclared fillers and flow agents such as silicon dioxide (an ingredient in paint).

It becomes a messy situation when intervening with real food in this way.

Simply put - This is not real food.

Our real food yolk

With our unwillingness to compromise on quality, and desire to question conventional wisdom in all that we do, we sought out the finest, award winning egg supplier in the land.

We use the finest award-winning British Free Range Egg Yolk in it’s natural liquid form -  who’d have thought hey!
