  • Mayo ok for IC??

    Help... I want some tuna so bad but the only way I can eat it is with miracle whip.... I would love to have some of it but I am scared... Has anyone out there used miracle whip without a flare up and without taking prelief... which by the way, I think I need to invest in some of that.... Thanks

    we are all so different with food triggers.. it may bother and some it don't. I rarely eat tuna, but the other day I actually ate a sandwhich. I think you should be ok if you don't over do it.

        Definitely use caution with it, as it can bother some and not others, just as everything else. It does contain acid etc, and do try just a small amount - and if you have Prelief, try that with - and see how it goes. No point feeling miserable over a tunafish sandwich, lol. I know there are quite a few who mix theirs up with some cream cheese to keep it "together" for a friendlier sandwich!! Good luck and keep us posted!

          You can mix it with cream cheese to make it hang together. I add a tiny bit of mayo with the cream cheese.

            Cottage cheese or cottage cheese run through the blender (add some herbs for seasoning, too, if you like) makes a decent mayo substitute. At first I couldn't tolerate mayo at all, but now, after several years of helpful treatment, I can have mayo if I don't overdo it.

              I like to mix veganaise brand substitute into my eggs before I scramble them or to make a salad dressing, but I'd been avoiding it because it contains soy stuff. I added some of it to my eggs over the weekend and had no problems. It does have apple cider vinegar, though, so watch out!

                I could use a mayo if I don't overdue it.
                Cream cheese? Think I'll try it next time I have a tuna sandwich.
