How KEWPIE Mayonnaise is made
Here's a look at how tasty mayonnaise is made with select ingredients and through refined manufacturing process at Kewpie factory.
Quality of ingredients is inspected.
600 eggs are broken per minute with in-house developed egg cracking machine.
Egg yolks are thermally sterilized.
Ingredients are mixed in a blending mixer.
Mouth of bottle is cut and filled with mayonnaise by packing machine.
Cap is put on after the air in the bottle is replaced with nitrogen, and best-before date is printed.
Bottle is packaged in wrap bag, then loaded into box by robot.
Emulsification enhances the mouthfeel
Oil and vinegar normally don’t blend, but adding egg yolk emulsifies the mixture and creates delicious mayonnaise. Bringing the size of oil droplets to 2~4mm/1000 with specialized machine, mayonnaise becomes creamy.
