History

Birth of KEWPIE Mayonnaise

Founder : Toichiro Nakashima

Founder : Toichiro Nakashima

Aspiring to create a brand everyone loves, founder Toichiro Nakashima named the nourishing condiment "KEWPIE Mayonnaise", with the hope of improving physique of Japanese people. In 1925 when Japan's first mayonnaise started to be manufactured and distributed by Kewpie, they used twice as much egg yolk as imported mayonnaise of that time.
This was because Nakashima, who first discovered mayonnaise in the USA, had always hoped to create nourishing, high-quality mayonnaise.

Tips

Surprisingly low-salt

Surprisingly low-salt

KEWPIE Mayonnaise may taste strong, but it contains only 0.3g of sodium chloride equivalent in every 15g (about 1 table spoon). It is less than "a pinch of salt" which is said to be about 0.5g.

Use eggs without waste

Use eggs without waste

Each year, 28000 tons of egg shells are produced in the production of mayonnaise and other products.
Kewpie started recycling in the 1950s and has now succeeded in recycling 100% of eggshells.
Calcium-rich eggshells are used in calcium-fortified foods, soil conditioners, and fertilizers.

The thin 0.07 mm eggshell membrane inside the eggshell is used as a raw material for cosmetics and food.
Also, egg white is used for sweets, kamaboko and ham.
