Stop right there with your bottle of yellow big-brand mustard! Do you know what really goes into that bottle? Chances are it's the pretty standard mustard seeds, turmeric for color, and vinegar. BUT. After the main ingredients you'll almost always find "spices" and "natural flavors" which can include a lot of questionable (and rather unnatural) components. With Primal Kitchen's new Organic Spicy Brown Mustard you are getting not only ORGANIC ingredients but also none of those extra and strange flavoring add-ins. Just vinegar, mustard, turmeric, and salt. Period. And every single one of them is organic. Bonus!
For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.
When it comes to condiments, quality matters. So much of what remains in our fridges, even AFTER doing the healthy food clean-out, contains colorings, sugars, stabilizers, and strange chemical combinations under the guise of "natural and artificial flavors". So it's a relief to know that there are Paleo-friendly condiments like salad dressings, ketchup, and now, MUSTARD!
Move over, vinegar-heavy mustard. Take a hike, weirdly yellow mustard. Primal Kitchen is here with the best thing to happen to your sandwiches, salads, meats and marinades: Organic Spicy Brown Mustard. The potent flavor of the organic mustard seeds is made even more vibrant (is that possible?) with organic vinegar. Add in some superfood organic turmeric and the healthy and tasty recipe is complete.
And yes, it works beyond meats. Mix it up with balsamic, avocado oil, and more spices for a phenomenal salad dressing or marinade. Drizzle it over your hash browns. The possibilities are huge and up to your imagination.
Why Primal Kitchen Organic Spicy Brown Mustard is so good for you
The major ingredient is organic mustard seed. Mustard seeds are an excellent source of selenium and a very good source of omega-3 fatty acids and manganese. They are also a good source of phosphorus, magnesium, copper and vitamin B1.
And, organic turmeric! Turmeric (Curcuma longa), the bright yellow of the spice rainbow, is a powerful medicine that has long been used in the Chinese and Indian systems of medicine as an anti-inflammatory agent to treat a wide variety of conditions, including flatulence, jaundice, menstrual difficulties, bloody urine, hemorrhage, toothache, bruises, chest pain, and colic. The volatile oil fraction of turmeric has demonstrated significant anti-inflammatory activity in a variety of experimental models.
