Real mayonnaise is a French invention made with virgin olive oil whipped with raw egg. The white goop sold in grocery stores, made with soybean oil and chemicals is not real mayonnaise, despite how familiar we are with it as a binder for canned tuna fish.
Gall bladders do not deal well with the commercial white goop, as it is hard for the gall bladder to break down and the body has absolutely no need for soybean oil.
So, here is a healthy alternative that you can try at home, courtesy of Healing Gourmentwww.healinggourmet.com

I am all about good food, which feeds the body and the soul. Processed, chemical junk food pleases only the tongue, and only for a moment.
As Gsa Gsa Gabor said, “A moment on your lips, forever on your hips.” Cheap processed foods also store in the cells, blocking natural processes and inhibiting cellular function. That is the breeding ground for disease states.
So, become a natural gourmet and enjoy a real food revolution at your house.
