What is kewpie?

  • Kewpie is a brand of Japanese mayonnaise.
  • Known for its rich, creamy texture and umami flavour.
  • Made with egg yolks, vinegar, and MSG.
  • Features a distinctive, squeezable bottle with a red cap.
  • Popular in sushi rolls, salads, and sauces.

What is the difference between Kewpie and regular mayo?

Kewpie mayo solely uses egg yolks, compared to regular mayonnaise which normally contains whole eggs. In fact it has around 4 egg yolks per 500g, so it’s extra rich. This makes the mayonnaise have a more distinctive yellow colour and extra creamy thick texture. It is also naturally preserved with vinegar and salt, and contains no chemical preservatives unlike its American counterparts.

Why is there a baby on the packaging?

The name for the brand originated from the popular doll ‘Kewpie’ created by American cartoonist Rosie O’Neill in 1909. The illustration of the doll was then used on the packaging as a nod to the name of the mayonnaise.
