Mustard Powder Yellow Organic

View larger Image

Steenbergs Organic Yellow Mustard Powder is a classic fine ground yellow powder but without any additives like turmeric to boost the colour.  Organic yellow mustard powder is hot when first mixed with water but mellows with time. Alternatively, use Steenbergs organic yellow mustard powder to spice up a salad dressing or a marinade or add to a warming casserole for an extra kick.  Steenbergs organic yellow mustard powder is also known as organic yellow mustard flour or organic ground yellow mustard.

Yellow mustard, Brassica alba, which is sometimes called white mustard, is the smallest growing of the mustard plants.  Yellow mustard plants grow to about 1m high (3ft) and have a hairy appearance.  The leaves of yellow mustard plants are pale-green, soft and lobed, and the mustard plants bear a bright-yellow and quite large flower.  The yellow mustard seed pods have a bird's beak shape and grow to 2.5-5cm (1-2 inch) in length and encase six yellow seeds.  The yellow mustard seeds are a small round seed of 2mm in diameter and are milder than brown or black mustard seeds.  The pods are picked when they are fully developed but not yet ripe as they burst open easily.  After cutting, the mustard hay is stacked in sheaves to dry before being threshed to remove the seeds.  Yellow mustard is mildly hot in pungency, because the enzyme myrosinase is released when chewed or broken and hydrolyzes the sinalbin and produces free p-hydroxybenzyl isothiocyanate, a pungent substance; it is a similar process to the heat that arises in black mustard, watercress and horseradish.  For more detail on yellow mustard, try Gernot Katzer's Spice Pages.


Mustard was introduced into England by the Romans and by the eighteenth century English and French cooks were perfecting the art of making mustards.  Yellow mustard is used in pickling spice mixes or add to curries.  To make a hot and simple mustard powder, add cold water to the ground yellow mustard powder and leave for 15 minutes to develop its flavour and heat.  I also add a pinch of yellow mustard powder to white and chesse sauces to give a little piquancy.  Try yellow mustard recipes at the BBC.
