This past week, I thought about to make egg salad at home. The major ingredient I needed was mayonnaise for this meal. So I headed to a Central Florida Dollar Tree store. I only need a small amount because I live in a single person home. On the store shelf, I found Calder’s Gourmet Real Mayonnaise in a 10-ounce squeezable bottle. This product is only available in-store at Dollar Tree stores. The product UPC code is 6-39277-19908-9.
What is Calder’s Gourmet brand? This is a private brand label manufactured for Greenbrier International who operates Dollar Trees and Family Dollar Stores. This label also sells under this brand name with horseradish sauce, tartar sauce, and much more. The printed label on the product packaging says made in the USA.
What are the ingredients in this product? It has soybean, oil, egg yolks, water, distilled vinegar, spices, salt, potassium sorbate*, calcium disodium EDTA added to protect flavor. Contains: egg. *Please note ingredient not normally found in mayonnaise.
The nutrition facts per 1-table spoon serving are 100 calories, 11gm of total fat, 15mg of Cholesterol, 60gm of sodium, 0gm of total carbohydrates, and 0gm of protein.
This product can be considered as a substitute mayonnaise based on the Calcium Disodium EDTA, which was added in this product. What are the health effects of CD EDTA? [For most individuals, eating foods that contain calcium disodium EDTA appears to be safe. While many packaged foods contain this preservative, the absorption rate of oral calcium disodium EDTA is minimal. In fact, your digestive tract absorbs no more than 5% (11).] Information from healthline.com.
Another fact that consumers need to be aware of is that CD EDTA is one of the ingredients in most mayonnaise products. Even the national brand has it in their product too.
Overall, I was happy with this product and only used a little amount to make egg salad. The egg salad turned out great. However, the product reviews online has mixed opinions on this product. Also, I learned a lot about what is in this product. At time of writing this article, I was unable to access this product information on dollartree.com .
