Mayonnaise is one of the most popular types of sauces in the world. It is a semi-solid oil-in-water emulsion produced as a mixture of egg yolk, vinegar, oil and some other ingredients. The color of mayonnaise varies, but it is often white, cream color, or pale yellow. It may range in texture from a light cream to a thick gel. It is served with sausages, burger patties, chips and salads as food flavouring and to stimulate the appetite for a starter meal. The oil content in mayonnaise is more than 60% and this contributes to lubricity and the creamy texture of the product.
