Mayonnaise is very low in sugars, containing less than 1g in a 100g serving. Because of this, it is exceedingly difficult to consume a portion of mayonnaise needed to calculate an exact number for its glycemic index. However, it is assumed to be very low.

The main ingredients of mayonnaise are egg yolk, vegetable oil, vinegar or lemon juice, and flavorings or spices. If we look at these components separately, all have glycemic indices close to zero.

However, despite the low glycemic index, mayonnaise should be consumed in moderation due to its high saturated fat and salt content.

Health checks

Low in Cholesterol
ok
 ⓘ Dietary cholesterol is not associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease in healthy individuals. However, dietary cholesterol is common in foods that are high in harmful saturated fats.
Source
No Trans Fats
limit break
 ⓘ Trans fat consumption increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and mortality by negatively affecting blood lipid levels.
Source
Low in Saturated Fats
limit break
 ⓘ Saturated fat intake can raise total cholesterol and LDL (low-density lipoprotein) levels, leading to an increased risk of atherosclerosis. Dietary guidelines recommend limiting saturated fats to under 10% of calories a day.
Source
Low in Sodium
ok
 ⓘ Increased sodium consumption leads to elevated blood pressure.
Source
Low in Sugars
ok
 ⓘ While the consumption of moderate amounts of added sugars is not detrimental to health, an excessive intake can increase the risk of obesity, and therefore, diabetes.
