Mustard Cress is a wonderful ingredient in salads and works well in combination with carpaccio or raw fish. The cress is also a spicy addition to a cold meat or fish dish. Mustard Cress is a good combination with Asian cuisine.


Mustard Cress is a real traditional Dutch product, and even the seeds are produced in Holland. In summertime fields are coloured by rapeseed and mustard production. Most mustard plants are used for green-fertilisation. However, both Koppert Cress B.V. and the mustard industry harvest the seeds for further processing.


Mustard Cress is available year round and can easily be stored for up to ten days at a temperature of 2-7°C. Produced in a socially responsible culture, Mustard Cress meets the hygienic kitchen standards. The product is ready to use, since it is grown clean and hygienically. 


Mustard is a known allergen. Mustard Cress is not true mustard, but it does contain the substance that causes an allergic reaction to mustard.
