    A spoonful of mayonnaise can be full of goodness:

    • Good Fats. Mayonnaise is made from soybeans, sunflower, and canola—fat sources that are not only good sources of energy, but are also essential fatty acids that help the body absorb vitamins A, D, E, and K.
    • Good Shape. It’s recommended that 30 percent of a person’s energy source should come from fats. Keep your intake at a minimum as carbohydrates, protein, and fats are all sources of calories; any excess beyond the recommended intake per day can lead to weight gain.
    • Good Heart. Mayonnaise is a good source of Omega 3 and Omega 6. These essential fatty acids raise high-density lipoprotein (HDL) or the “good” cholesterol that keep cholesterol away from the arteries and back to the liver, where it actually belongs.
