Spread the Mustard

by Zannat Reza, MHSc RD

Did you know that two-thirds of all the mustard traded in the world is grown in Canada? And that farmers in Saskatchewan grow about 75% of Canada’s mustard crop. Who knew Canada was such a power in the spice world?

From a nutrition standpoint, one tablespoon of yellow mustard seed is a source of fibre, zinc, magnesium, selenium and heart healthy omega-3 fats. So add some zing to your foods with mustard.

Mustard is more than just a condiment for burgers and hotdogs. You can use mustard seeds in making a savoury sauce to top your salmon, as a marinade for steak, in an Indian inspired slaw, and even in an oatmeal raisin cookie (!)

If you wish, you can make your own mustard. It will keep in the fridge for up to six months.
