Duke's Mayonnaise

Duke's Mayonnaise is a condiment created by Mrs. Eugenia Duke at Duke's sandwich shop of Greenville, South Carolina, in 1917.[1][2] While it is the third-largest mayonnaise brand in the United States (behind Hellman's and Kraft), its popularity is largely limited to the south.[3] It is used in regional favorites such as tomato sandwiches, cole slaw, and potato salad. Duke's Mayonnaise contains more egg yolks than other mayonnaise products and no added sugar, giving it a tangy flavor.

C.F. Sauer Company purchased the Duke's Products in 1929.

Ingredients list[edit]

Soybean oil, eggs, water, distilled and cider vinegar, salt, oleoresin paprika, natural flavors, calcium disodium EDTA added to protect flavor.[4]
