About This Food

Description

Similar to the mustard plant itself, these seeds are a powerhouse of nutrients and benefits that support and promote health.

They’re packed with phytonutrients that help protect against gastrointestinal, lung and cervical cancer. They’re a natural anti-inflammatory that studies have shown are effective against the symptoms of psoriasis, respiratory conditions, and contact dermatitis. The various minerals found in mustard seeds are vital to optimal health and can prevent mineral deficiency.

Two major types of mustard seed are used — white (or yellow ) and brown (or Asian ). Mustard seeds are sold whole, ground into powder or processed further into the commonly used prepared mustard.
