Hellman’s uses cage-free eggs in its light mayonnaise
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.

Star Scientific seeks FDA approval for tobacco lozenge
GLEN ALLEN, Va. Star Scientific on Friday filed an application with the Food & Drug Administration for approval to market Ariva-BDL, a wintergreen-flavored tobacco lozenge, as a “modified risk” tobacco product under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act of 2009. This submission is the first such application to be filed with the Tobacco Products Center of the FDA.
The tobacco product is manufactured with flue-cured tobacco that contains levels of tobacco-specific nitrosamines below detectable limits by most current standards of measure. TSNAs have been identified in scientific literature as one of the most deadly and abundant groups of carcinogens in tobacco and its smoke.
Star Scientific originally introduced dissolvable smokeless tobacco almost 10 years ago when it launched Ariva in 2001 and Stonewall Hard Snuff in 2003. Both products are pieces of powdered and compressed tobacco that dissolve completely in the mouth.
