Is mayonnaise a liquid or a solid?
Furthermore, is Mayo considered a liquid?
Physically it's a liquid - it flows to fill its container. More properly, it's a colloid - specifically, an emulsion of fat and water.
People also ask, what type of mixture is mayonnaise?
Mayonnaise is an emulsion of oil and vinegar made by adding some egg yolk. Without the egg, the liquids separate into a heterogeneous mixture. Heterogeneous mixtures – The substances are not evenly spread out.
Mayonnaise is essentially just an emulsion of oil and eggs, with small amounts of herbs and other flavoring, so calling it “real” mayonnaise as if to imply that other types of mayonnaise are “fake” would be misleading.
