Yellow mustard seed comes from the white mustard plant (Sinapis alba), a species original to the Mediterranean region and cultivated in the U.S. as a food and forage crop.

White mustard, also commonly called yellow mustard, is a member of the broccoli family of plants and is most likely native to southern Europe and the Mediterranean region. The plant has been cultivated for its edible seed since the time of the ancient Romans and is still a significant crop in the spice trade today.

Whole white mustard seed is used to infuse flavor into culinary oils and vinegars. The crushed seed is mixed with vinegar to produce a condiment known as simply mustard, which is used as a spread or sipping sauce. Like its cousin, horseradish, mustard seeds contain a sugar-like compound called sinalbin, the function of which is to protect the plant from predators. This component is also responsible for the pungent flavor of the seed.
