Did you know that mustard is also made on Texel? The mustard seeds are grown on Texel and processed into delicious Texel mustard at the mustard factory in Den Burg.
Texel mustard has the quality mark 'Genuine Texel Product'. To qualify for this quality mark, the product must meet strict requirements. At least 75 per cent of the production, processing and preparation of the product must take place on Texel.
