The humble seed with tangy flair.

Mustard Seed
(brassica hirta)
Mustard Seed, Whole

In its raw form, mustard is somewhat tame. It takes water or another nonacidic liquid to activate myrosinase, the enzyme responsible for that classic hot mustard taste.

We source our Spice Islands® mustard from the far reaches of Western Canada, combining yellow and oriental mustard seeds for superior flavor.

Use whole mustard seeds in pickling or boil it with vegetables. You can also add an Indian flair to your dishes by frying mustard seeds with curry and cumin.

Fun Fact: In 334 BC, Alexander the Great received a bag of sesame seeds from Darius III of Persia, symbolizing the vast Persian army. Alexander answered with a bag of mustard seeds to signify the number and power of his men.

Our Mustard Seed is only mustard. Spice Islands® spices and herbs don’t contain added sugar, fillers or other ingredients so you get the most authentic flavor every time.
