  • Any vinegar substitute?

    I'm trying to find either a vinegar or lemon juice substitute. I've tried rice wine vinegar and that still gives me trouble. My main goal is to make IC friendly mayonaise.

    Any suggestions?

    I would love to know if you eventually succeed. I looooved mayonnaise! I haven't even attempted to try it yet. Can anyone have it without major problems?

      I have seen posts on here from people who can tolerate mayo. I'm a big wuss and haven't tried yet, but I really miss it!

        The big problem for me is the lemon, onion, and paprika that a lot of commercial mayos have in them. I've found that I can tolerate rice wine vinegar in small doses, so I decided to try making my own mayo.

        I can eat that smeared on bread with little repercussions, but I want to see if there is a low acid vinegar that could make it completely safe for me. I think I have to have some type of acid in there to help with the process. I'm probably for trying to do it! LOL

          Apple Cider Vinegar

          Hi,

          Apple cider vinegar is supposed to be highly alkalizing. I used a little to cook with and did ok. Maybe worth a try?
          Oh, and it's cheap!

            White wine can be substituted for both vinegar and lemon juice. IF you can tolerate white wine this could be an option.

              Jana, that's a great idea! Thanks!

              I've tried cooking with sherry (don't know if that's better or worse than regular white wine) and did OK. It did give me a little upset, but not too bad.

                I was just getting so tired of bland food, that I was going to try mayonnaise. Well, I should say Miracle Whip, because that is what I have always loved and used. I looked at the ingredients, and vinegar is something like 2nd on the list of ingredients. I smelled it and it smelled like vinegar. Then, I had a small jar of regular Hellman's mayonnaise, and vinegar was way down the list. I smelled it and it smelled like eggs. I think I'm going to try to get brave and try the Hellman's. I had no idea there was so much difference. I thought the Miracle Whip just was sweeter, no idea about the vinegar. Just throwing that out there...

                  Let us know how you do with the Helman's. I am just dying for mayo but haven't had the courage to try it.

                    I can tolerate a bit of mayo on a hamburger, but I doubt if I could eat it by the spoonful.

                    Is it truly the mayo you are looking for? Is it for a recipe? Or would another substitute do?

                    I like the white wine idea. Seems that a lot of people can tolerate that. I am allergic though! So, I can't help you with the trying of it!

                      I tried the mayonnaise today for lunch, a normal portion. I didn't really feel any effects and had a busy day. Now I am having slight pain, but sometimes when I stand for a long time I can get that. Anyone else have that happen? Anyway, it didn't cause a big problem that I can tell, just annoying.

                      I would think if you cook with wine or sherry, the alcohol would cook out and it would be okay. I've never tried it, but it seems like you'd just be left with the flavor and not the offending alcohol. Any ideas on that?

                        Thanks for the update on the Mayo. I think I'll get a very small jar of Helman's and see how I do.
                        Not sure about the wine, but I think I once heard that almost,but not all, of the alcohol cooks off. Again, it's trial and hopefully not error, I guess.

                          Follow-up on the mayo- Today I'm not feeling that great and the mayo is the only thing I did differently. I don't think I'll have it again. Shoot~!

                            Apple Cider Vinegar Mayo

                            I made up a batch of mayo last night with the apple cider vinegar. The taste is very mild... almost sweet. I think I'll need to add a wee bit more salt to compensate... maybe some powdered garlic too. Other than that, it is delightful! I am really feeling positive about the effects of this batch on my IC.

                            I am going to have a big gob of it tonight with artichokes, so I will let you know how I feel! I've really missed my mayo with fresh artichokes. The taste of it on the steamed heart is heavenly.

                              Please be very careful with vinegar --- it's very acid. I can't tolerate much of any kind of vinegar.
