Mustard is an amazing spice that we are increasingly getting used to in the kitchen in our latitudes. Ripe mustard seeds are used, which can be white mustard (Sinapis alba), brown mustard, also known as Sarepta mustard (Brassica juncea), and black mustard (Brassica nigra).
Depending on the taste and health needs, the fruits that are taken from these varieties are used in the kitchen or for the production of mustard. All of them are characterized by a special spiciness due to the presence of various compounds of mustard oil in the seeds.
Mustard always supports primarily the digestive tract. The effectiveness of mustard seeds is not to be underestimated. They are useful when the pancreas or liver is not working at its full potential.
