Plant-based foods

Average read time: 2 minutes

Delicious plant-based foods are better for the health of people and the planet. We’ve put them at the heart of our strategy.

The benefits of plant-based foods

The EAT-Lancet Commission demonstrates that if people eat more plant-based foods, emissions could be cut by up to 80%. Eating meat and dairy alternatives and vegetables, regardless of their colour, really is a ‘green’, or environmentally friendly, thing to do. But plant-based diets are not only better for the planet, they’re also good for human health.

We’re convinced of the health benefits of adding more plant-based foods to our diets. We’ve been using our expertise and product knowledge for several years to increase consumer choice, by introducing more plant-based options and increasing sales of a diverse range of protein sources. And we’ve embedded plant-based thinking into our Future Foods commitments.

Hellmann’s - same great taste, plant-based

We’re expanding our delicious vegan options as part of our dressings portfolio. In India, for example, we introduced our full Hellmann’s range as egg-free.

Hellmann’s Real mayonnaise has been around for 100 years and has truly become a reputed brand in more than 50 countries. Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise in India is carefully crafted using a simple combination of ingredients such as high-quality vegetable oil that is soya bean oil which is further fortified with Vitamin A & D, naturally brewed vinegar, lemon juice, spices and small quantity of sugar & iodised salt to give that unmistakable Hellmann’s taste while being 100% vegetarian.

Hellmann’s Mayonnaise has only 75 calories per serve (1 Tbsp ~15g) and is low in sugar. It packs the goodness of oil as it is made with one of the healthier oils: Soybean Oil which has the goodness of Omega 3 & 6. Omega 3 is an essential nutrient & contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels. Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise fits perfectly as a part of a balanced diet and active lifestyle. This perfectly balanced and tasty mayonnaise elevates every dish.
