You probably know that mayonnaise is usually made with eggs. But did you know that 346 million hens are used by the U.S. egg industry each year? They often spend the majority of their lives in dirty, cramped conditions. And since male birds born into the egg industry are considered useless, they’re often killed shortly after hatching, either by being ground up alive or tossed into plastic bags. ?
This means that chickens are SUFFERING for mayonnaise! But don’t panic, mayo-lovers. We’ve got the ultimate list of vegan mayonnaise right here—all completely cruelty-free!
