Important points when purchasing mayonnaise

■ Dissatisfaction with mayonnaise on the market
Respondents also commented on the mayonnaise on the market as follows.

・ Because of the large quantity, it is difficult to buy it as a trial. If you have a tasting, you can buy it after understanding the taste, but if you can not, I think it is difficult to buy a new brand. (Male, 29 years old)
・ As the remaining amount of contents decreases during use, air gradually enters the container and oxidation progresses, so I would like you to devise a supply port well so that air does not enter no matter how you use it. .. (Male, 67 years old)
・ It is difficult to use up all of them within the deadline. I'm buying a bento-sized bag type, but I don't sell calorie-free ones in that package. (Female, 43 years old)
・ I am not dissatisfied and want to use every meal every day, but I am a little modest for my own health. I have bought mayonnaise that is good for my health, but I feel that it tastes different. (Female, 62 years old)
