Most people are familiar with ground yellow mustard seed as an ingredient in deviled eggs and classic potato salad. But powdered yellow mustard also makes a flavorful rub for baked or grilled chicken and fish. The powder can also be added to vegetables dressed with lemon juice or vinegar and olive oil.

The flavor of yellow mustard seed is less pungent than brown mustard seed, and mixing the powdered seed with hot water or an acidic liquid, like vinegar or lemon juice, inhibits the enzymatic process that produces “heat.”

what else you should know

yellow mustard seed

Sinapis alba is botanically known as white mustard but most people refer to it as yellow mustard, if only because the seeds are used to produce the condiment of the same name. A member of the cabbage family, the species is original to the Mediterranean region but is now naturalized throughout most of the world.

White mustard seed has a milder, less pungent flavor than its distantly related cousin, black mustard (Brassica nigra). In addition to its use as a seasoning, powdered white mustard seed is used traditionally used topically as a rubefacient to relieve chest congestion or muscle pain. The “heat” produced on contact is created by a chemical reaction between myrosin and sinigrin within a few minutes of being mixed with cool water.
