Help, my mayonnaise has split / turned oily & runny!Updated 2 months ago

We hear your cries, and we're here for you. 

Through no other intervention but Mother Nature herself, our Mayo is susceptible to splitting if subjected to extremely cold temperatures 🥶 But all is not lost, in fact - some things are gained! 

Our Mayo is made with real food ingredients that don't contain any artificial preservatives, thickeners, or emulsifiers 🥴 

The avocado oil we use is naturally processed retaining all the yummy goodness - a little like olive oil, it can sometimes go solid at very low temperatures! 

If this happens, the emulsification may break and the product will separate as a result of temperature fluctuations, usually during the colder months or if stored in a fridge that is too cold. 

If this occurs, it can be used as a base to an awesome ranch dressing, but we totally appreciate it is not the intended Hunter & Gather Mayonnaise experience and welcome you to reach out to one of our team by contacting us at [email protected] 🥑
