Mustard Oil

The term mustard oil is used for three different oils that are made from mustard seeds:

  • A fatty vegetable oil resulting from pressing the seeds,
  • An essential oil resulting from grinding the seeds, mixing them with water, and extracting the resulting volatile oil by distillation.
  • An oil made by infusing mustard seed extract into another vegetable oil, such as soybean oil

The pungency of mustard oil is due to the presence of allyl isothiocyanate, an activator of the TRPA1 channel.

Famous quotes containing the words oil and/or mustard:

    I became increasingly anarchistic. I began to find people of my own class vicious, people in clean collars uninteresting. I even accepted smells, personal as well as official. Everyone who came to the studio smelled either of machine oil or herring.
    Margaret Anderson (1886–1973)

    Johnson’s conversation was by much too strong for a person accustomed to obsequiousness and flattery; it was mustard in a young child’s mouth.
    Hester Lynch Thrale (1739–1821)
