ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. Mayonnaise brand Hellman's announced its new light mayonnaise recipe will feature 100% certified cage-free eggs in the United States.
"Hellmann's is made from real, simple ingredients — vinegar, oils rich in Omega 3 and Omega 6, and eggs," said Jamey Fish, Hellmann's senior brand manager. "Hellmann's understands that people are increasingly attuned to what's in their food and where it comes from and that's why Hellmann's Light is now moving to 100% cage-free eggs, keeping with the brand's commitment to 'real food' using simple ingredients."
Eggs used in Hellmann's Light mayonnaise (and other recipes) will be certified through a program administered by the American Humane Association, the leading certifier of cage-free eggs.
Hellmann's said it will eventually change all of its "real food" mayonnaise recipes to cage-free eggs once a certifiable and consistent supply becomes available in North America.
