What is Mustard?

Mustard is one of the world’s most important spice crops. Throughout history it has been adapted into many different cuisines by many different cultures. In more recent times, Mustard has been increasingly used in food preparation for its unique properties. Mustard also has many applications outside of traditional food ingredient uses. Some mustard varieties offer biological and insecticidal properties and the oil can be used in the manufacture of Biodiesel and other industrial products.
