Organic Yellow Mustard Powder

Our high quality mustard comes to you from Saskatchewan, the heart of Canada's prairies. It is grown on a multigenerational family farm using certified organic and biodynamic methods. 

Milder and sweeter in flavor than brown mustard seed, mustard is an important spice in many ethnic cuisines. Mustard powder can be used as a condiment in a variety of dishes. It is most frequently used to make yellow mustard when combined with vinegar, turmeric, and other spices. It is also used either whole or ground, in vinaigrettes, marinades, sauces, and pickling, and with seafood and other foods.

While dried mustard powder does not have a very strong quality, mixing it with water initiates an enzymatic process that enhances its pungency and heat. To moderate its sharp flavor, you can either add some very hot water or an acidic substance such as vinegar, either of which will stop the enzymatic process.

Mustard powder is an excellent source of selenium and a very good source of manganese. They are also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, phosphorus, and tryptophan. Like other Brassicas, mustard seeds contain plentiful amounts of phytonutrients called glucosinolates. The seeds also contain myrosinase enzymes that can break apart the glucosinolates into other phytonutrients called isothiocyanates. The isothiocyanates in mustard seed (and other Brassicas) have been repeatedly studied for their anti-cancer effects.

This is the herb most frequently used in mustard plasters. Mustard helps to stimulate blood flow and is known to improve circulation. Because it is warming to the skin it is often used to relieve sore joints and muscles when used as a mustard plaster.
