Miracle Whip’s New Mystery Ingredients [+ Homemade Miracle Whip Recipe]
Now that Kraft Miracle whip contains mystery ingredients its time to try this Homemade Miracle Whip recipe courtesy of The Feingold Association.
This is the story of a product that may — or may not — contain bad stuff (ie. dyes, artificial flavors, artificial sweeteners or bad preservatives). I recently received an email from The Feingold Association, which publishes a list of food products that do not contain dyes, artificial flavors, artificial sweeteners or bad preservatives. Feingold was letting me know that they were removing Kraft Miracle Whip from its approved foods list. Apparently, Miracle Whip has a new ingredient list and the reformulated product includes unspecified “spices” and “natural flavor.” Feingold asked Kraft what exactly the “spices” and “natural flavor” are and Kraft refused to let them know. Since Kraft would not disclose the spices and natural flavor, Feingold removed Miracle Whip from their approved list of foods.
Given Kraft’s refusal to disclose the exact ingredients in the newly formulated Miracle Whip, Feingold suggests that if you want to avoid bad stuff in your food but like the sweeter taste of Miracle Whip, you can add a bit of sugar to your regular mayo. Or you can try this recipe.
