In case you didn't know, Best Foods Mayo Magic contains aspartame

If you have phenylketonuria, steer clear of Best Foods Mayo Magic. It contains aspartame, an artificial sweetener that is used instead of sugar because it has 200 times the sweetness of sugar.

Side effects from the use of aspartame have been clinically proven to occur even on those who do not have phenylketonuria, such as an increase in frequency and severity of headaches, and exacerbated depression in those who have it. Up to a hundred different symptoms of adverse reactions following aspartame consumption have been reported, and there have been studies that found aspartame use associated with increased cancer risk. There are also studies that did not find a link between aspartame use and cancer, so to this day it is hotly debated, but the risks cannot be ignored or dismissed. Aspartame is commonly used in “diet” beverages and sugar-free drinks as well.

Avoidance of aspartame entirely should give you peace-of-mind.
