Mustard: A powerful superfood
The health benefits of mustard have made it a popular superfood for centuries. The potent medicinal properties of mustard seeds made this powerful ingredient popular with the ancient Greek and Roman civilisations who used it for various ailments. Pythagoras recommended mustard as a treatment for scorpion stings, while the pioneering physician Hippocrates added mustard seeds to poultices to help relieve soreness and inflammation, as well as to help ease the symptoms of a toothache.
The mustard plant is native to areas of North Africa, as well as parts of Europe and Asia. All parts of the mustard plant are edible; however, it is the seeds that are highly prized, which are harvested, removed from their seed coats, and then ground into a spice or used whole. There are many different varieties of mustard seeds, including brown, white, and black mustard seeds, all boasting incredible health benefits. Black mustard seeds are the most intense, while brown mustard seeds are typically used to produce Dijon mustard. White mustard seeds are often toasted and used to make yellow mustard or used for pickling.
