Natural Value Organic Mustard

Natural Value Organic Mustard

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

Organic Mustard, Gluten Free, Certified Kosher, Contains Triple Distilled Organic Grain Vinegar made from GMO free corn. We would love to see them use vinegar that does not come from corn, since corn is one the five most common food allergies and is in so many other products. High ranked for great flavor. Always buy mustard that contains turmeric to make sure you get the healthy anti-inflammatory properties from this powerful herb. This companies mission is to make natural and organic foods and environmentally friendly nonfood products more affordable.
