Important to know:

  • Rye bread, home-made from whole grains (not using any flour) is a super food, releasing constipation and contributing to gut health
  • Ingredients of the vegan mayonnaise which I bought (honestly, the taste is amazing, much better than any egg-based mayo I have ever tried): water, rapeseed oils, mustard (water, spirit vinegar, mustard, sugar, salt), sugar, modified crust, thickeners: xanthan gum, guar gum, spirit vinegar, salt, antioxidant: E385, colorants: carotenes. No preservatives
  • E385 is calcium disodium EDTA, commonly used as a chelating agent, preservative and antioxidant (to prevent oxidation by chelation) in canned food. It stabilizes food by binding with free polyvalent metal cations (1). Preservative! On the label it is written that there are no preservatives, have you noticed?:)
  • For me, this is some kind of transitional food, because:
    • consumption of tomatoes is highly limited in my food ration
    • mayonnaise, even if it is vegan and super well done with good ingredients – it is still some kind of unnatural food for the human…
