A condiment used to flavour foods such as meat, chicken or fish, and also in salad dressings. There are several varieties: American (or yellow) mustard is mild, made from white mustard seeds while Dijon mustard is made from brown mustard seeds, and has a creamier texture. All mustard is made in a similar way. The seed is crushed, and a liquid such as water, wine, vinegar or a combination of these is added, as well as seasonings.
When buying mustard it is important to read labels carefully, as some brands contain added wheat flour, artificial colouring agents, synthetic additives, poor quality salt, refined sugar and irradiated spices.
