Vedica Organics - Organic Mustard Black


Organic Black Mustard seeds have a sharp, tangy flavour when sprouted. Black mustard seeds are most often used in Indian cooking and help to give it a savoury and delicious flavor. They are great to use when pickling vegetables. It is common in Southern India to fry mustard seeds, curry leaves and cumin seeds in oil and then add these spices onto your dish!


  • Mustard seeds are one of the oldest herbs known and have been used since earliest recorded history. It is well known for it's medicinal use for internal and external applications. Mustard comes from the same family as the broccoli, cabbage, radish and cauliflower, the Brassicaceae family. It's interesting to know that the typical hot, pungent taste that comes from mustard only occurs when it comes into contact with liquids, hence it has little to no aroma when they are whole or crushed. The dried seeds do not have any fragrance, but exhibit a pungent taste after some time of chewing. Roasted seeds (more grey in colour) have a rich, nutty odour. Black mustard is more important as a spice and oil plant, especially in India. Although it is called black, the seed itself is usually a very dark shade of red/brown. The black mustard seed has a much more pungent aroma and flavor and smaller than the white mustard seed.

    Organic Black Mustard seed poultices are medicinally used for muscular pain relief, to ease coughs and reduce arthritic pain. Organic Black mustard seeds can also be made into a tea (1 tsp of ground mustard seed) to help reduce symptoms of the common cold. It can be ground and sprinkled into the bath to warm the body.

    The health benefits from a black mustard seed are also substantially greater. Not only is it a much stronger laxative, but initial studies have indicated that there is a possible link between one of the primary components of the black mustard seed and the inhibiting of cancerous cells.
