Huh? I checked all four bottles of mustard in my fridge and all four are
give their fat grams as 0. I even checked the ingredients on all four
bottles (all are different varieties) for possible hidden fat that is too low to
register as a whole gram. The only thing that has any fat in it is the
mustard seeds (so it isn't completely fat free), but the seeds only have
one gram / teaspoon. It doesn't take very much mustard seed to make a lot of
Intrigued by the other post claiming 3 grams of fat for mustard
/tablespoon, I got out my book of food values. Both Grey Poupon and
French's Dijon mustard have 1 gram of fat/ tbsp, but I couldn't find any
listing that came anywhere near 3 grams.
Where did you get this information? I am really intrigued by this.
Mustard has long been touted as a fat-free condiment. If in fact, it has
3 grams of fat/tbsp then what's up with the labels on the four bottles of
mustard I have. Even if you figure that something need only be slightly
below 0.5 grams/ serving to be considered fat free, and factor in the
serving size on the bottle of one teaspoon, it still only come out to
just under 2 grams (as there are 4 teaspoons in a tablespoon).
