Handcrafted Mustard vs Yellow / Industrial Mustard: Exploring Flavour Beyond Ordinary

by Sabine Schoenknecht on October 17, 2023

When it comes to mustard, the options seem endless. Among the familiar contenders are yellow and industrial mustard, each serving a purpose but standing apart in flavour and quality. At Atlantic Mustard Mill, we believe in celebrating mustard as an art form, moving far beyond the ordinary. Let's delve into the nuances of these mustards, understand their roles, and discover why our handcrafted gourmet mustards are unparalleled.


Yellow and Industrial Mustard: The Basics

Yellow Mustard: A Traditional Tang

Yellow mustard, also known as American mustard, is a household staple. Crafted from white or yellow mustard seeds, vinegar, water, salt, and a hint of turmeric, it delivers a mild tangy flavour with a subtle sharpness. Its vivid yellow hue, thanks to turmeric, is instantly recognizable. Ideal for classic sandwiches, burgers, and hot dogs, yellow mustard adds a zesty kick to your favourite snacks.

Industrial Mustard: Where Mass Production Meets Functionality

Industrial mustard, a staple in the food industry, is engineered for large-scale production. Aside from the large scale that industrial mustard is produced at, it is largely one and the same as yellow mustard. Utilizing mustard seeds, vinegar, water, salt, and various chemicals, industrial mustard ensures consistency and longevity. Its adaptability makes it a favourite in sauces, dressings, and marinades, offering a reliable flavour for mass consumption.

When compared to handcrafted mustard, industrial mustard is not fermented, and it is made with mustard powder which contains no mustard oil. Handcrafted mustard on the other hand is fermented, and seeds are stone milled, which retains the mustard oil. Mustard oil is a natural preservative, it’s very healthy, and it gives more flavour. All these qualities give handcrafted mustard a distinct leg up over yellow and industrial varieties.
