At Pödör you can be sure that only substances beneficial to your health are in the mustard. Every basic mustard recipe contains the same four ingredients: Mustard seeds, salt, water and vinegar. These are then supplemented with other ingredients according to the desired flavor for instance with toasted hazelnuts, fresh pumpkin seeds or chilies. All mustard products from Pödör undergo continual production checks.
First of all the mustard seeds are cleansed and then milled between two rollers. In the next stage of production the milled mustard seed is mixed together with the other ingredients so that a mash results. To allow for the aromas to fully mature the mash at Pödör is given sufficient time to ferment. Then the mustard mash is further processed into a paste. At this stage it is important that the temperature does not exceed 50 degrees centigrade otherwise sensitive essential oils are lost.
In the final step the end mustard product is filled into jars and has to mature inside the glass for another few weeks. Mustard straight off the production line would be too hot for immediate use.
What you may have missed in our production story are excessively high temperatures and additives. That is because at Pödör we do not use either of them. We set great store by gentle processing that affects taste and substances as little as possible. We consciously refrain from using preservatives, flavor enhancers and aromas. That much we owe to our demands on quality.
