is this a healthy food? dill pickle mustard

Welcome back to another Food on Friday post! I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe from this new Covid Delta variant. Keep reading to get my thoughts on Dill Pickle Mustard. This post may contain affiliate links.

I have been hearing so much about Trader Joe’s Dill Pickle Mustard, that I had to get some. I was going there anyway, and I was really hoping it wasn’t sold out. It was not, and I got some. It is delicious! Not too dilly, just right. I don’t remember exactly the price, maybe 3 dollars, but it was reasonable. I think people think Trader Joe’s might be higher priced. I actually find them quite reasonable for a specialty store. They just aren’t super close to me. Their meats are kind of high, but I think all meat is unless you are buying junk meat. I don’t even really eat that much meat anymore, but my family does.

But, is it a Healthy Food?

  1. No, because it isn’t food. It is a condiment. So, technically it can not be called a Healthy Food.
  2. No, because if you look at the label below it has no nutritional value at all. In order for a food to be considered healthy it has to have energy ie calories, and some vitamins and minerals. The only quantitative item on the label is Sodium at 50 mg per tbsp. serving. That is a low sodium condiment, though!
  3. Now, I would call it a good condiment that is a healthy choice. It has no calories, no fat, and low sodium. But, you still get all the flavor and spice. The ingredient list is pretty good though hard to read due to the weird colors on the bottle, at least for my eyes. It does have some natural flavoring, and that can means various things.

This is really good on sandwiches, potatoes, meat, eggs even. Try making a salad dressing with it, instead of honey mustard or Dijon mustard. Ooh that sounds really good! I might have to try that. Try it on different food options and see what you think. Let me know in the comments if you like it, or not. I am sure there are other brands besides Trader Joe’s that makes Dill Pickle Mustard, but this is the only one I have tried. Have you tried other brands? Let me know in the comments.
