Mustard ingredients

English mustard contains three primary ingredients: ground mustard seed for flavour, turmeric for colour, and flour for bulk. Generally the mustard seed is a combination of ground and sifted brown and white mustard.

Versatile mustard

English mustard can serve two purposes in cooking. Most commonly mustard adds flavour and spice. English mustard can also act as a emulsifier -- it keeps liquids such as water and oil dispersed together.

Substitute ideas

Use either Chinese or Dijon mustard as direct substitutes for English mustard, as they both provide similar flavour and spice. Try making your own variety of English mustard for specific purposes; for example, leave the turmeric out to remove the intense yellow colour. Substitute another hot constituent such as cayenne pepper or wasabi if the mustard flavour isn't to your liking. If you need an emulsifier but don't want to add flavour, try using soy lecithin.
