Kraft Miracle Whip is meant to provide the texture and flavor of mayonnaise but with less fat, according to product information. It can be used in salads, as a spread for sandwiches, as an ingredient in entrees and even in desserts. The serving size for Miracle Whip is 1 tbsp.

Significance

A 1 tbsp. serving of Kraft Miracle Whip has 40 calories. That compares to the 110 calories in a same-size serving of mayonnaise, says certified nutritionist Anne Collins of Ireland. Miracle Whip Free has 13 calories and Miracle Whip Light has 37 calories.

Features

In Miracle Whip there are 3.5 g fat, which amounts to about 35 calories. In Miracle Whip Light there are 3g fat, which amounts to 27 calories. Though fat makes up the majority of the calorie content, there is no trans fat in either version. Regular Miracle Whip has 0.5 g saturated fat, which is 3 percent of your recommended daily limit for this type of fat. For a 2,000-calorie diet, 3.5 g fat is about 5 percent of the daily intake recommended. In Miracle Whip Free, there is no fat.

Considerations

All three versions of Miracle Whip are relatively high in sodium. Miracle Whip has 105 mg while Miracle Whip Light has 131 mg and Miracle Whip Free has 126 mg. If you are a healthy adult, you need to limit sodium intake to 2,300 mg a day. If you have high blood pressure, diabetes or kidney disease, or if you're middle-aged or beyond, you need to limit sodium intake to 1,500 mg a day, according to MayoClinic.com.

Benefits

Miracle Whip provides vitamin K. Your body needs vitamin K to activate proteins and calcium that are essential to blood clotting, according to Harvard Medical School. The condiment provides about 16 percent of the recommended daily amount of vitamin K if you are a woman, and 11 percent of your recommended amount if you are a man. Miracle Whip does not provide a significant source of other vitamins.

Types

In the fat-free version of Miracle Whip, most of the calories come from sugars. This version of the dressing has 2 g sugar per tablespoon.
