Gourmet British condiment brand release aquafaba vegan mayonnaise

Gourmet condiment brand Rubies in the Rubble has launched an aqaufabulous new range of vegan mayonnaises made with aqaufaba.

Rubies in the Rubble, who makes its products using fresh fruit and vegetables that would otherwise go to waste, is launching two delicious vegan mayonnaises: Aquafaba Mayo and Chipotle Mayo, which retail at £3.50 per 210g jar.


Aquafaba (bean liquid) is a term used to describe the brine or the liquid from tinned or cooked beans which can be used as an egg replacer. It can be used as a thickener, emulsifier, binder and more, so is perfect for forming many vegan dishes from meringues and macaroons to marshmallows and waffles – even vegan mayonnaise and cheese.

This liquid is very close in consistency to egg whites, and the proteins and starches in the brine are similar to the ones found in eggs – this is why they work as a foaming agent and an emulsifier.

To make their vegan mayo, Rubies in the Rubble whisks aqaufaba together with rapeseed oil, salt, lemon juice, and Dijon mustard.


Speaking to Plant Based News about what inspired her to create a mayo made with aqaufaba, co-founder Jenny Costa said:  “We were inspired to get back into the kitchen after we saw a vegan foodie blogger was making gorgeous looking meringue with aquafaba, saying it performed just like egg whites – we were intrigued and so we started playing with how it could work in a condiment!”

She added: “Mayo is such a widely used staple, so it seemed like a brilliant opportunity to create something gourmet for vegans and non-vegans who will also appreciate the sustainable approach.

“Currently we source our aquafaba from a hummus manufacturer. Every year hummus manufacturers empty gallons of water from cooking chickpeas down the sink when making hummus or any bean dip.

“At RITR we want to ensure we treasure our resources and make the most of everything we have so thought we would put this nutritious, golden liquid to great use in our new range!”


The aquafabaulous new vegan mayos are available to purchase online at Rubies in the Rubble, as well as at Whole Foods stores across the UK. You can also find them in Honest Burger’s new vegan offering, as well as at Oxford Circus’ plant-based restaurant Ethos. The wider range, which also includes products like ketchup and relish, can be found in Waitrose, Selfridges, Harrods, Fortnum & Mason, Lakeland, COOK, on Virgin Trains, as well as in delis and cafés around the country. You can also purchase online at Ocado and Not on the High Street.
