Mustard is a spice that has been consumed since ancient times. The Greeks and the Romans used it for seasoning their dishes.
There are different species of mustard used to prepare the sauce that bears its name: yellow or white mustard (Sinapis alba L.), brown or Chinese mustard (Brassica juncea (L.) Czern.) and black mustard (Brassica nigra (L.) K.Koch). In addition to being rich in proteins and oils, mustard sauces also contain sodium, selenium and vitamins (C and B12).
Brown mustard is more aromatic and spicy than yellow mustard. At Anastore, we recommend that you get to know this age-old spice: Try our organic brown mustard seed powder!
DESCRIPTION AND ORIGIN
Mustards are part of the cruciferous family, which includes three species used as a condiment: yellow or white mustard (Sinapis alba L.), black mustard (Brassica nigra (L.) K.Koch) and brown or Chinese mustard (Brassica juncea (L.) Czern.). Brown or Chinese mustard ( (L.) Czern.) is an annual herbaceous plant with yellow flowers and small, oil-rich seeds. This species of mustard was introduced from China to northern India, and from there it spread to Afghanistan via Punjab (1).
Mustard is currently an economically important crop that is widely grown in Asia and Europe (2).
Mustard has been used as a spice since ancient times and was cited in Sanskrit texts as early as the year 3000 BC. It was also one of the first crops to be domesticated (1). The term mustard emerged for the first time in France in the 13th century. The term ‘moutarde’ appears to come from the popular word ‘mustum ardens’, since the Romans had the custom of adding or diluting mustard seeds in grape juice (3). In that century, mustard was consumed in large quantities throughout Europe and it was the cities of Cremona (Italy) and Dijon (France) that devoted the most land to its cultivation. Dijon currently produces a large percentage of the world’s total mustard production (3).
The different species of mustards accumulate significant amounts of oil and proteins in their seeds (4). Mustard sauce is a good source of vitamins C and B12 and contains a significant amount of sodium and selenium (3).
Brown mustard contains glucosinolates, molecules that convert into isothiocyanates. These are sulphur-containing compounds that give mustard its pungent flavour (5).
