We love animals at Hunter & Gather and we also love eggs from happy healthy chickens that are free to roam, forage and take shelter on their choosing. This is very important to us.
In short, the chickens at St. Ewe have the best possible life and in turn they produce arguably the freshest and tastiest eggs around - That’s why we only use eggs from the St. Ewe farm in our range of mayonnaise.
We understand that many of you may choose not to eat eggs, either for personal lifestyle choices or because of allergies. If that's you - Read On!
A Personal Journey of Discovery
The Coeliac girl Amy has had a journey of understanding what works for her personally in her diet and also for Jeff. A cliché we know, but as you know, not everybody is the same and what works for one person may not be the best for everyone.
We believe that the core principles of no sugar, no grains and no harmful fats is a great place for people to start and you can use the principles of Real Food to help you find out what works for you to be the best version of yourself.
From being diagnosed with Coeliac at 18 months old, growing up Amy has been prone to allergies such as bug bites, rapeseed flowers, wasp stings – you name it!
With an allergy to cow’s milk and dairy becoming apparent in her early twenties, it has only been in the last year that eggs have started to become a challenge too. Amy began noticing that she did not feel great when she had an omelette or a large amount of eggs in one go!
Amy has trialled when and what makes her not be at her best when eating eggs and she has discovered that she can have a small amount, i.e. an egg every few days but is unable to eat a large quantity.
Well, this becomes a dilemma when you make the most delicious mayonnaise with egg yolk!
Amy began researching egg allergies and discovered that there are others out there that also have Coeliac and suffer with eggs. There is also those with an allergy to dairy who also choose to stay away from eggs. One thing that kept coming up is that these people also miss having a clean ingredient mayonnaise that tastes great and is healthy for them.
With this knowledge Amy took a leaf out of the Experimenter boy’s book and started trialling egg free recipes at home using aquafaba, also known chickpea water, pea and cauliflower powder.
Eureka, an egg free mayo was made, with no soy, sugar, grains, harmful fats – just using real ingredients! Keep your eyes peeled on our product page for more information!
Again, Amy’s personal journey with food has shaped the products we launch, as we want everyone to be the best version of themselves whether you eat eggs, or not.
Whether your choice to not eat eggs is due to allergies, lifestyle choices or personal preference, our egg free mayo will enable you to enjoy food without compromise.
