Having run out of my usual Hellman’s Lighter than Light mayonnaise, I thought I’d try out Tesco’s own lowest calorie mayonnaise which, incidentally, is also called ‘Lighter than Light!
It contains 80% less fat than Tesco’s standard mayonnaise and has 14 calories per 15g tablespoon.
If you use a lot of mayonnaise, you can make a huge calorie saving by switching to the lighter than light variety.
Tesco do have a Light Mayonnaise which also saves many calories, but Lighter than Light is the lowest.
Tesco’s Lighter than Light Mayonnaise is made with free range eggs and is available in a 480ml top down squeezy bottle. This is a lovely light mayonnaise, very creamy and quite thick. It’s easy to squeeze out of the top without making a mess and because it stands on its lid, there’s no need to shake the bottle.
Here’s a look at the calorie comparison between the range of Tesco Mayonnaise (per 15g tablespoon):
Tesco Mayonnaise – 115 calories
Tesco Light mayonnaise – 45 calories
Tesco Lighter than Light Mayonnaise – 14 calories
Tesco Everyday Value mayonnaise – 40 calories
AND its namesake -
Hellman’s Lighter than Light Mayonnaise 10 calories.
Tesco's Lighter than Light costs £1 at the time of writing, which is the same as their other varieties (excluding the EverydayValue Mayonnaise).
Available in Tesco stores.
