What Is Mayonnaise Made Of?
Mayonnaise is made from egg yolks, oil, vinegar, salt and sugar. These ingredients are combined with water to create a thick liquid which is then spread on bread or other foods. The secret ingredient used in making mayonnaise is emulsifier. Emulsifiers prevent the mixture from separating into separate layers when it comes time to eat the food.

If you still don’t understand the difference between mayo and eggy, here is another example: You buy a bag of potato chips at the store. They look pretty good.
But do you really want to eat them all yourself?
No, you’d rather share them with your friends. So, you go to the kitchen and grab a few bags of potato chips from there. Ten minutes later, you are sharing the chips with your friends and family.

You can’t really share it, unless you transfer the miracle whip to another container.
