Yellow Mustard Seeds- What's Lurks Behind the Spice Rack?
Chemical Preservatives in the Mix
In an effort to extend shelf life, some brands treat Yellow Mustard Seeds with chemical preservatives such as 'Potassium Metabisulfite.' This additive, while effective in preservation, can cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals and detracts from the seeds' natural purity.
