Mustard (Brassica sp.) is one of the important and most popular food items (as edible oil) in the greater Indian sub-continent region including Bangladesh. Due to many reasons this crop is directly or indirectly related to the culture, tradition, society and food habit of this area. In fact, there are a number of food items where mustard oil is mandatory; like- mustard-hilsha fish curry, different meshes (potato, tomato, brinjal, okra, pumpkin etc. vegetables), snacks (jhal muri) and so on. Besides food item, this oil also has additional usage as mustard oil cake in improving soil fertility as well as in body massage (applying on skin).
